Today we’re taking a look at the TV show with the best lines.
I don’t know whether this means the show consistently threw up good dialogue, or if we’re looking for the singular best lines in the show. If we assume the first premise, then we have a few options.
The ultra violent show Spartacus may have attracted attention for being bloodthirsty, virtually pornographic and bubbling over with bad language, but the style of speech was often quite clever. Whether it true reflected the era I can’t say, but there was something artistic about the way words flowed. There’s nothing else quite like it for style.
There have been some great speeches on Star Trek and Doctor Who, and some clever lines on comedy shows like The League of Gentlemen, but I find myself returning to the colourful and descriptive language of Spartacus for this one.
