Spartacus

11 posts in this topic

This show is awesome, based on the history of Spartacus, 

 

hope others are watching it, It has pretty bad viewers (under a million) but really well made

The acting is decent, but the selling points is the grit and violence, 

 

Each season is very different, 

 

Season 1, Was the story of Spartacus the slave, becoming a gladiator, then the bringer of raid (too epic)

 

Season 2: was a pre qual series, Story of Gannacis, the polar opposite of Spartacus, being a selfish drunk dick, who loves wine and whores, and is naturally death incarnate with swords, doesnt train, doesnt figth for honour, just exists (great character none the less)

 

Season 3: Spartacus' rebellion starts with him and a band of men / freed slaves fighting for survival and evading romans, freeing slaves as they go

 

Season 4: War!!!  Sparacus has an army, but problems are arising, armys need food, shelter and disapline, can one man old his ideals with so much on his shoulders

 

 

If you havnt watched it Please do

there is crazy amounts of violence, sex and great story, so much back stabbing and plots, 

 

Some very interesting points made about sexuality, The romans dont distinguish between Strait / bi / homosexual, not holding back on any of it, 

how the romans treat the slaves is almost incomprehended. 

 

 

an awesome scene (very gory)

Holy crap. O_O

 

I haven't watched it yet. Its on the Starz channel if I remember right. I'd like to be current on it and Game of Thrones but those channels cost too much for the few shows I'd want to watch. I'll get my hands on this series and start watching it. :tup:

I tried to find the scene where he 300/Spartan kicks a guy off a cliff but couldnt find the clip 

 

The language they use is epic, it is so fowl. but almost elegant. ''by Jupiters cock''

S1 > S2. Sucks about the actor in S1 who played Spartacus cos I felt like he was much better than the current actor. 


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

I think the new guy has done a great job considering Andy played Spartacus so well

 

I didnt like the official season 2 much, it lacked the politics and back stabbing of the other seasons

 

The pre-qual season Gods of the Arena in my opinion was awesome

 

they really got the continuity right from how Crixus became champion, why asher was a total dick, how Onemaious became doctore.

S3 is surely better than S2. I agree with everything said above.

series just finished, wow

the most epic battle TV will ever see, puts most movies to shame

 

If you like Vikings, this show makes Vikings look like it is made for kids

 

There is so much violence, but it is not grotesque or out of place, so much bad language but fitting to the context, and nudity that is no way pornagraphic, it is just the best show on tv that has broken every boundary.

 

The final battle was so epic,

The show ended a few weeks ago, worth checking out for sure in spite of the nudity. Season 1 and Season 3 are the best imo.
