Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Lucy Lawless
The swords and sandals are about the only similarities between Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Xena: Warrior Princess, Lucy Lawless says.
"They're so different from each other in almost every way," she tells TVGuide.com. "From the technology, the fight sequences, the sex scenes."
Ah, yes, the sex scenes. In addition to the copious amounts of blood spilled on-screen, the Starz ancient Rome epic features boundary-pushing sex scenes that are about ...
Question: I am trying to find out more information on this series called Legend of the Seeker. It is produced by the same folks who did Xena and Hercules. It is supposed to air November 1, but I cannot find on what station. I would appreciate any information you can give me on this.
Answer: This swords-and-sorcery fantasy series was originally titled Wizard's First Rule, and is based on Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. Like Xena and Hercules back in the day, the newly christened Legend of the Seeker is airing in national syndication, not as part of a network feed, so you'll have to check your local listings (available on tvguide.com, naturally) closer to the airdate to find what station in your market is running the two-hour premiere on the weekend of Nov. 1 ...
Kevin Sorbo, Avenging Angel
After developing a large hero-worshipping following with 1995-to-1999's syndicated campfest Hercules, then as Gene Roddenberry's starship commander on 2000-to-2005's Andromeda, Kevin Sorbo is now trying his hand at the cowboy genre, as a preacher turned bounty hunter in Hallmark Channel's Avenging Angel (premiering Saturday at 9 pm/ET).
TV Guide: This sounds like a dark Western. Kevin Sorbo: Usually Hallmark is sort of along the lines of G movies, but I'd give this more like a PG-13 — I think this is a big step for them. It's Pale Rider meets

Barbara Eden courtesy Lifetime
On Army Wives, Barbara Eden will once again be married to a man in uniform. As first reported in the Ausiello Report vodcast, the I Dream of Jeannie star will play Victoria Grayson on the Aug. 12 episode. Along with her husband General Hugh Grayson (Robert Forster), she arrives on post to check up on things. No belly buttons this time around. It doesnt hurt that the Lifetime shows creator Katherine Fugate happens to be Edens niece. Fugate also has plans for an old friend from the days she was a writer on Xena: Warrior Princess. I want to write a two-parter for Renee O'Connor (Xenas bosom buddy Gabrielle) for the second season, Fugate says. Weve stayed friends; she gave me my baby shower. Reporting by Ileane Rudolph
Lucy Lawless in Vampire Bats
Lucy Lawless really should go on Fear Factor. The former Xena: Warrior Princess star had to fight off a swarm of gonzo grasshoppers earlier this year in the CBS TV-movie Locusts, and now in the sequel, the imaginatively titled Vampire Bats (Sunday at 9 pm/ET), she's battling a horde of... well, you get the idea. But she also weathered far more real storms this year, as you'll see in TVGuide.com's interview with the Kiwi.
TVGuide.com: Vampire bats, locusts — if you had to be attacked by either, which would you prefer?Lucy Lawless: Ooh, I'm going to have to go with the locusts, I'm afraid. Hang on... I'm trying to think which is a quicker death. There
