Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: A tasteful way to cover up male nudity? I know what you mean… how about we cover up his nudity with a naked women on her knees, in front of his “blade!” What? How is that even remotely sexist!?  Oh…. well… do it anyway.

Scott B Comments: So we have a glowing underwater shark-riding, um, zombie Roman legionnaire?  At least I assume he’s been zombified, or something. That’s a real death-stare he’s got going on there.  Maybe he forgot he can’t actually breathe underwater?
