Re: Spartacus: Blood and Sand

Starz is developing a six-episode miniseries prequel to its freshman hit, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, in order to keep the series' momentum after its star, Andy Whitfield, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma a month ago and production on a second season was indefinitely postponed.

The series (the finale of which airs next week) has been Starz's first original-series hit, averaging a million viewers each week; the network green-lighted season 2 a month before it even premiered, but now, with Whitfield in treatment, Starz finds itself with empty sets, actors, producers, and writers very expensively standing by.

A prequel (Gladiator Babies, perhaps?) would keep the sets and creative staff productive, while holding on to the original show's fans. Network execs are now in Cannes at the annual MIP TV international programming marketplace, looking at other options, but this spin-off is looking like a tempting bet to fill their January hole.

Re: Spartacus: Blood and Sand

yeah this truly was one of the best episodes of anything. The build-up to the escape was just the right intensity. Everyone knew what was going to happen but this was way better than my best hopes.

Re: Spartacus: Blood and Sand

Re: Spartacus: Blood and Sand

So... yesterday I had a thought... I thought; -I wonder what all the hype is about? And so I did what any man, woman or child would do. I obviously downloaded and watched the show smile

What started of as a very violent and bloody soft-core porn, quickly turn into a very exciting and (as have been said before) unpredictable series!

+ show spoiler

At the beginning I thought that it would of course end with Spartacus and Suras reunion... when events made that impossible, I realized that this was just not that kind of a show. smile

I have read nothing about this, except what's been written in this thread. Where is this show from? Why are the episodes longer than usual?

It's a new channel and it seemed they wanted to kick off with pure awesome. The whole final episode of this show is one of the most epic things in the history of TV. And the main character is from australian soap opera big_smile
