    It officially premiered Friday, 1-27 in the US. Certainly a lot of blood & gore, once again. The new Spartcus actor is fair, but nothing to touch the late Andy Whitfield. In many scenes I kept losing track of which of the gladiators was the new Spartacus.

    The brothel slaughter was a mix of mild porn and extended blood bath. It included a brief gay blow job, and the grimace-inducing image of a customer getting a sword upswing to his naked crotch. OUCH!

    Of course if you know history then you already know the ultimate fate of the featured historical figures, like Spartacus himself, Crixus and Glaber. So who else here watched it, and impressions, after all this advertising we saw for it on RJ?

    started out slow and got better as it went along so thats good...midway through big sex scene including a guy getting his ass fucked by a female with a strap on. Like that there should be some new characters introduced

    Loved the return of Lucretia but will not spoil anything

    Not sure of the appeal of the new actor playing Spartacus but lets see how it goes, going to be tough to replace Andy Whitfield

    It's not too bad, but I keep thinking of how this new guy doesn't really stack up to Andy.

    I forgot it was on. Too bad there wasn't something here to remind us about it.
