    I know this isn't exactly relevant, but do you know the site TvTropes? That site is totally addictive. There's a lot about the different themes that appear in the media (& everything) like BewareTheNiceOnes, BigBad and LampshadeHanging.They have a page for pretty much everything and a Spartacus one here.

    I keep hearing all about it but I reckon I have only checked it once and didn't find navigation around it easy. But then, I'm really terrible finding my way around new things. Is it fanmade? Can random users contribute with information or is the information reliable?

    It was started by fans. It began about the show Buffy and then grew to cover everything. Anyone can join and edit as it's largely about examples, but things can get fixed if it doesn't fit or isn't true. It's quite an entertaining site, there's a bit of a description on the main page and much more here. I hope that one helps. It's worth checking out. There's more on people putting examples in the wrong place here.It's not like Wikipedia, it's not an official database but it is informal. You should probably know about these though TropesAreTools, and analyzing the different themes and patterns can change how you watch things. I find the site a lot of fun.

    I just checked it now and the Spartacus one has already been updated to include the latest episode. It's amusing to look at the pages for shows I really like, also at the character pages for those shows.

    Things that are partcularly subjective usually go in the 'Your Milage May Vary' (YMMV) folder that is on pretty much every show'spage.
