    Barbarians was decent. It ended too quickly and didn’t really capture the battle and tactics very well which is kind of the whole point of the show.

    As someone who took 4 years of Latin my absolute favorite part was that the Romans actually spoke it in the show. As it’s a dead language, it was the first time I had heard it conversationally ever which kind of blew my mind and also was the best surprise ever. It’s worth the watch just to hear it.

    Needed more war/fighting scenes. That shit didn't start until there was 30 minutes left in the last episode.

    thanks. I took 3 years of latin, I think. Very interested in hearing it depicted in a TV show. Do you know what episode they featured this?

    As an aside, my Latin teacher in high school had a doctorate in the language and could speak it. He was a super nice but weird dude.

    He also wore chain mail under his clothing.

    So I'm one episode into La Revolution and figured it was a ho-hum French Revolution retelling...never really watched a trailer or read anything about it.

    There's some fuckery about. It's intriguing.

    Not new at all, but I finished my list and was looking for something new and light hearted so I gave Cobra Kai a shot. I expected straight trash, relying solely on nostalgia to carry it, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised. Hell, more than that, I like it a lot.

    If you enjoy animated series at all, Blood of Zeus is definitely worth a watch. Also, only 8 episodes of 30 minutes each, so it's not as much of a time suck as some of the other Netflix shows.

    I also took 4 years of Latin and had a super nice/weird teacher that could speak it.

    still the smartest dude I know. He’s only teaching Latin because he wants to. Guy got a 1500 on his sat and went to vandy. Has a doctorate and was also the person I went to for help with math homework because he explained it better than the math teachers

    This describes the only Latin teacher I know. He was the turbo dork at elementary school that knew everything about NASA and dinosaurs. Once stayed in at recess to do a huge math problem on the board after we learned how to do long division

    It appears to be. I’m through 3 eps and really like it. It’s a story that weaves itself into Greek mythology. I’m liking the story so far.

    That’s awesome. My teacher was super nice too and would help you with anything. He got his doctorate at UNC and married a significantly more attractive woman than what I thought he could pull who also had a doctorate in Latin.

    He had memorized large portions of Caesar’s “The Gallic Wars” and forced us to memorize the prelude. Almost 20 years later and I can still quote it.

    Mine does not have an attractive wife at all, but that’s ok.

    I was actually terrible at Latin. I could conjugate, but couldn’t remember the vocab for shit.

    Animation does look very similar to Castlevania, and the plot involves demons.

    Basically, a race of demons were created were the Titans fell to the Gods, and the demi-god son of Zeus needs to lead the fight against their army.

    my Latin teacher was probably one of the best teachers/people I ever had, at any level. The rest of the school hated him and thought he was the meanest teacher in school. He loved that. He called the guys who took Spanish or French losers. He loved us.

    we did the Ecce Romani books. We’d have vocab quizzes and grammar quizzes weekly. Vocab quizzes you could get a negative score of you missed all the words (you’d have to do all 4 versions) and macrons. Tests were all translations.

    by Latin 3, we were having to translate huge sections of Pliny or the Gaelic wars or some shit.

    he sat us in order of grades. Smart kids in the back and the bad ones in the front. Every quarter he’s shuffle and it was like a draft.

    I think even the kids with the best grades probably really had a C at best. He curved big time.

    everyone in the class would pretty much ace the national Latin exam, so his class was definitely much hard.

    guy was pretty funny. He went to Italy summer before my senior year and bought this super fancy bowl on the streets of Rome. Brought it to school and put in on his desk. Told everyone it was an ancient Roman artifact to smoke their “hash hish from the edge of the empire”
