Re: Spartacus: Blood and Sand

He actually had an suprisingly large impact and just did a season of this show. We discussed this at work with a spread of age groups. But thats life and our mortality thank you for giving me good entertainment.

The second season was a great dissapointment and my hopes for S03 were very low, until now.

Re: Spartacus: Blood and Sand

Yup. The new Spartacus guy was bad, the Romans were blank like paper (no John Hannah) including the main guy, the return of Xena was pointless, claustrophobic sets which made me feel like I was watching a theater play in a broom closet, a dull history with the season finale being the best episode because of the cast cleansing (albeit they also killed off few people who actually knew how to act).

They peaked with Gods of the Arena and I don't feel they'll get to that level again.

Re: Spartacus: Blood and Sand

I agree mostly what Orlando said. The new Spartacus was okay in my book, but lacked the intensity of Andy. They also turned Crixus into a whiny biatch. The season finale and the episode where they invaded the gladiator fight were the best ones. Rest of the season was a bit forgettable.

And yes, the show lost a lot with John Hannah, he was perfect in his role.

True, because he has charisma, in contrast to the brick wall Spartacus.

Re: Spartacus: Blood and Sand

sheesh people. what the fuck you want? Emmy worth television? then please watch emmy series.
for christs sake this is Spartacus. this has to have crude acting, blood, nudeness, and pointless/non-existing dialog.

now seriously. this is the main reason i do not watch drama shows.
if you want a emmy performance from every show i have no idea how can you watch so many shows then?

i think that's why you don't like the last season of Game of Thrones. they try to put more effort in drama, and you want blood and nudeness. for me, i think that why i haven't got around to watching spartacus: gods of arena, because in the first episode, there were a lot of sex scenes and it wasn't enought to keep me interested.

actually i want action that was in the book. i really do not care much about the nudeness. i can get it from porn.
that's why spartacus was good. lots of action. people were not crying around from one scene to another like in almost every show.

My ranking of the seasons:

1) Season 1.5 "Gods of the Arena"
2) Season 1 "Blood and Sand"
3) Season 2 "Vengeance"
4) Season 3 "War of the Damned" ? Not sure yet

Re: Spartacus: Blood and Sand

Gods of the Arena is amazingly fantastic and sadly it goes downhill since then.

Re: Spartacus: Blood and Sand

Spoilers below.

So done watching... if one has read history about Spartacus they could have opted for other routes to take.

Spartacus passing just wasn't very well done so he could have survived (history say that his body was never found) or somehow leave a greater legacy (yeah -- know he did, but we didn't see any sort of reflection on this other then the bad guys hating/respecting him, quite shallow imo).

Just don't feel that the ending was all that grand and that it was a bit too shallow. In Season 1 + Season 1.5 we had intrigues and plenty of typhical roman drama. War of the Damned as a season was shallow in comparison to season 1 and 1.5.

Re: Spartacus: Blood and Sand

As series finales go, I thought it was excellent. The earlier seasons were more exciting because the show runners were presenting a lot of new stuff (plotwise and technically). By the last season it had become difficult to amaze, but I though the finale did so.
