    I watched the first episode and that was enough and special effects were too video game phony looking.

    the last several weeks have been off the charts. There has been a savage death like every week. This show is keeping me on the edge of my seats, it gets better and better every single week. Im watching it on demand and I am one week behind but after a slow start plot wise there have been so many twists and turns. The violence and the beefcake caught my eye the first week but its actually the storyline which is the strong point now.

    Crixus was an historical character. He later became one of Spartacus' lieutenants and led the Gauls who formed part of his vast slave army (likely as much for linguistic and cultural reasons as anything else), estimated at its peak at 120,000. icon_exclaim.gif

    Naturally Crixus does die, as of course will Spartacus himself. I know when and how this will happen, assuming this series is reasonably true to their known history, and if it continues that far. But if you don't know that ending, I won't spoil it for you.

    Batiatus is also recorded as being a real person, but the intrigue and scenes in the ludo about which the series has been so far concerned are fictional. About all that is reliably known to history is that Spartacus was captured in Thrace and sent to the ludo of Batiatus at Capua, where he served for some unknown time before escaping with about 70 other gladiators, and beginning the slave revolt.

    just saw the most recent episode....must agree that initially drawn to the series for the stylized fight scenes and the hot bods....now the storyline is pretty strong...Ilithyia is a bad, bad girl....

    BTW, as an aside that I mentioned in another thread, the completely amoral and treacherous Batiatus is played by John Hannah. You'll remember him as Brendan Fraser's somewhat goofy brother-in-law "Jonathan Carnahan" in the 2 Mummy movies. Having been first introduced to Hannah in those gentler earlier roles, I find his turning so evil here rather disturbing for some reason.

    I actually think it demonstrates his versatility as an actor. I didn't even make the connection until you brought it up..... Bravo John Hannah!

    I enjoy the show, reminds me of HBO's Rome and 300.

    It does do that. but I meant disturbing in the sense of seeing someone playing so against type. At least the type I previously saw Hannah do. For all I know he may have played villains prior to The Mummy, and his role there was the one against type.

    the sex scene between a masked IIylithia and a masked Spartacus evoked memories of Eyes Wide Shut....what a shocker that it was Ilyithia under the mask set up by Lucretia to get back at her and embarrass her in front of that other woman who was suppose to have Spartacus...and my jaw dropped open when Ilythia just brutally beat that womens face to death

    Poor Varro he did not deserve to die.

    Note from the Op:


    I posted this elsewhere, but not sure everyone is aware that the actor that plays Spartacus, Andy Whitfield, has been diagnosed with cancer and production of the series has halted. So unfortunate.

    Oh my, they are giving us a few free episodes on Encore and I am liking the bodies and wrestling tonight. My DVD recorder is busy at work as we speak.

    Shame that the only time we get to see hot muscle guys is when they are fighting.
