Popular kultcha

I dipped into BBC's The Borgias second season. Soap opera cartoons in expensive clothes. Not in the same fictional universe as The Sopranos.

And I peeked at the continuation of Spartacus. Lots of flesh and blood. Lots of pseudo-Shakespearan language. Under all that macho muscle and testosterone, the plot is about men obsessively searching for lost wives. Pretty boring, all in all.

The Marx Brothers films I saw on Saturday with B: I forgot how very verbal Groucho's humor was, and rapid fire, dizzyingly so. Harpo is a deranged Trickster.
