    Jupiters Cock....can't wait for the premiere on Jan. 21, 2011. The prequel to Spartacus Blood and Sand will follow the earlier days of the House of Bataitus and include many of the cast members from the first season. Only bummer is that its only 6 episodes. The new character the show will feature will be Gannicus and he looks pretty hot and ripped.

    Still no word yet on just who will be taking over Andy Whitfield's role as Spartacus although I think they have narrowed it down to 3 actors.

    Hot, muscular and semi-naked men fighting - this is so my kind of show!

    They haven't shown it on terrestrial TV in the UK yet though :-( I will have to download it at some point I guess.

    Nah - maybe on one of the satellite channels but I don't have them. We got Rome and it did pretty well so I dunno why none of the main 5 channels here picked up Spartacus.

    I really like the Auctus/Barca relationship. I wished the series would go more than just a few episodes.



    Spoilers!!!























    Also pretty mad they killed another gay character. Especially only in episode 3.

    its too bad that Auctus was killed by Crixus but you could see it coming a mile away. Poor Gannicus will probably be the next to meet the same fate. Love the roughhousing between Auctus and Barca leading to passionate kisses..lol. How about the wine over the naked breast scene....lol. Over the top and campy but they are playing this short 6 episode seasons exactly like they should

    I remain fascinated by actor John Hannah, who plays Batiatus. I first saw him being the clownish and semi-inept brother-in-law of Brendan Fraser in The Mummy movies (actually they weren't yet related by marriage in the first one).

    And here Hannah is the epitome of ruthless, unprincipled & unscrupulous evil. I'm not sure I'm comfortable with him in the role, with all the foul language, though he plays it well. But I suppose better for character depth to see it played by an actor who suggests that underneath he is weak, insecure & cowardly.

    And I note that this prequel continues to have full male frontal nudity. There was even a scene where a guy with an uncut cock pisses on someone he had just beat up, and I've never seen anything that graphic before on US television. Not that I'm into water sports, but that was certainly new & different on TV.

    John Hannah does do a great job. Now lets not mistake Spartacus for Masterpiece Theatre but Hannah really adds a lot of layers to his role which is by far the most deep of all the characters. I have a feeling that he is already plotting his fathers death

    Oh yeah the male frontal and back nudity. Got to see Crixus in all his glory this week and for a show geared toward straight males its pretty cool that they just all out go for it with stuff like that and the gay storyline.

    To me the most shocking scene was when Illithyia killed one of Lucretia's friends by violently bashing her head after Lucretia and her played that old switcheroo and it was Spartacus that was fucking Illithyia and not Crixus. So many jaw dropping moments for this series which continues to push the envelope

    I love the series, but it does seem to be a bad place to be gay. Seeing as they are always the ones killed. I was hoping for a bit more with Auctus and Barca, more than just passionate lovers, but I guess what we got was good too.

    I read an article quoting the creator saying he was always going to include gay characters in the series. Even though they have faced some friction from the mostly straight male demographic viewers, they aren't going to take it out. He also said the Spartacus season 2 will have gay characters. So I plan to keep watching since this is my favorite pseudo-historical show since Rome.

    I've been told by a couple people that I look like one of the characters in this. I think I'll start watching.

    Historical atmosphere, guys baring it all!!!! Scenario can be fiction, that's fine! I wanna watch it sooo bad!!! Thousands of years ago my ancestors were just like that! Or at least watching the gladiators! This is an ancestral nostalgia for me. In those olden days man to man comradery/battle/play/sex was very natural and expected! In this Christian/Islamic/Jewish brainwashed, screwed up world, unfortunately is considered marginal, barely tolerable or shunned!

    Hail the olden days! Down with the Abrahamic religions!

    Does season two overuse CG blood and Matrix slowdowns like season one?
    I couldn't make it past the first two episodes because of it- it's a shame too... because the guys looked..

    I fucking LOVE Spartacus! I watched both seasons and I'm upset Season 2 was only 6 episodes and we have to wait til! 2012 for the 3rd Season. The homoerotic fighting and historical plot lines are amazing! I hope Season 3 takes Spartacus to another level especially with most of the main characters dead.
