TV filler
13 August 2017 | by Ersbel OraphSee all my reviews

This is TV filler between the regular show and the late show. This form of entertainment is brought to Ancient Greece, even Alexander the Great is brought in. Well, from this point of view, mindless males killing each other on pointless issues, that is probably from the beginning of humanity.

Anyway, it should have been easy: two males beat each other silly. But the ridicule starts when it is presented in superlatives.
