Andy Whitfield, Spartacus

I was watching the 1st season of Spartacus yesterday while cleaning the house (specifically the Pit and the season finale). Whitfield was soooo good. Mcintyre did a fantastic job too and I felt kinda bad that some people didn't give him a chance simply because he wasn't Whitfield.

/Spartacus Season 1 finalie is one of the best of all time

Came to gripe about the lack of Sesame Street, glad to see it was covered already. Still probably the best way I'd seen the death of a cast member handled, if not one of the most waterworks-inducing...

The Leo stuff with West Wing always struck me as spooky.  His char has a heart attack that sidelines him and puts CJ in CoS position.  Then what, less than a year later the actor has a real heart attack.

The only mention of Woody is The guilt: his replacement, Woody Boyd, introduced the world to Woody Harrelson. The world is worse off for losing Colasanto; the world is better off with Woody Harrelson in it

You know, it wasn't too long ago that Weird Al did an interview on a podcast where he said he didn't like Mad Magazine as much as he did when he was a teenager.

Sorry to hear that. I had the exact opposite experience recently. Went through old CDs I had at my parent's house and found "Running With Scissors" and "Bad Hair Day". Popped them in and it was like listening to them all over again.

I was amazed I could still remember all the lyrics to "The Saga Begins" (the only good thing to come out of the prequels).

Remember, the Internet is pretty young - it only knew Woody Harrelson from the mid to late 90s and forward - Natural Born Killers, The People vs. Larry Flynt, and the like. Watching him play more or less squeaky clean Woody Boyd is disturbing to them.

/supposedly, that's why they cast a young Marsha Warfield... they were tired of strange voiced, chain smoking older women dying on them.

//Also, no Chico and the Man? Freddie Prinze is replaced by a 12-year-old "Chico", and eventually, they say the original Chico died in Mexico.

By saying that they feel guilty for liking him despite also liking the actor he replaced?

No, he was replaced by Dennis Farina, best known fior Crime Story.

And Lennie's death was only mentioned a couple of times... once by Mike Logan in L&O: Criminal Intent, and once by the Lieutenant in the final season... both long after Jerry Orbach died.

No, after Jerry Orbach left L&O Classic, the Lennie Briscoe character became a regular on L&O: Trial By Jury, but Orbach died of cancer after filming only 2 episodes; he was replaced by Scott Cohen.

Be fair, though - they gave Flo her send-off while she was still alive, but weren't sure if she would survive through the season.

And Marsha Warfield had her own diabetes scare - that also got its own episode in the show. Female bailiffs were cursed on that show, I swear.

Yeah, they did give Flo the retirement episode, only to have her still employed at the end of the episode and appearing in the season finale two-parter right after her big episode... and it was a damn good episode, too. They gave her a script to make her shine.

I just thought it was odd she only got a one line mention in the first episode after her death.

/And I still prefer to believe the reason Bull went from intelligent but flaky to childlike and naive was because he couldn't handle Selma and Flo leaving him within such a short time.

I watched this on Netflix.  The first 5 episodes weren't that great or didn't find their rhythm, but literally every successive episode was better than the last all the way up to the finale.  I can't really remember a show that got progressively better that way up to a fully satisfying finale.
