I may try to catch up on the old eps before Starz disappears from Netflix in a couple of weeks.
I assume that the new series won't ever be on Netflix.
Looks like the Starz-Netflix contract is up at the end of February. I wonder if they will put up the new shows until then...
I don't remember all of the details of the big escape scene but didn't she get her throat slit or have some similarly mortal wound? Doesn't seem like something you could come back from in ancient rome.
Not a jack ass. I am a 4 star poster on RCMB - spartanfan48413
She was stabbed in the gut with a short sword. But she was also preggers, so there's the possibility the majority of the damage was to the fetal area. It's barely plausible, but so is a lot that they do in the show.
That's the only explanation for her survival. She miscarries, she has a cut in the gut that didn't puncture her vitals, and she crawled away and somehow survived. So she'll be back whether it's plausible or not.
Tonight's the night, eh? Bring the new season on.
Glaber is a great villain. Such a pompous asshole.
That's the absolute truth. He is a pompous asshole. Pretty good first episode.
They certainly portray the Roman aristocracy well.
So I guess I'm the only guy that realizes thus show is the gayest show on tv.
Oh, it is gratuitously "Hollywood gay". LOL!!! Personally, I'm looking at the wimmenz and all the blood and gore. The dialogue is mostly terrible too. But you got to see Xena's tits, didn;t you?
I think the fact that my friend and I had a discussion about how much hotter the original Spartacus was not only speaks to the shows gayness but also our own.
Am I the only person disappointed this thread isnt about Vasquez punching lucious in the face?
Anybody else still watching this season? It has been awesome IMO.
Yeah. This guy playing spartacus sucks IMO and if I hear the word nevia one more time I'm going to donkey punch crixus but other than that its been great. The part where glabers preggo wife was getting finger banged by the other dude was one for the spank bank for me.
Yeah, I was a huge Crixus fan but he is annoying me this season as compared to season 1 and the prequel.
Gannicus is still HOF.
I'm torn on this season. Took a while to adjust to the new guy (I know that sounds bad given the cause for the change), and the episodes have been hit or miss. I'm still hooked, though, and dreading the end of the series.
Yeah the nevia thing is getting old, and the new actress' appearance annoys me for some reason. Hard to imagine why the chick who was previously playing her decided not to come back.
pretty sure its the same actress. They just cut her hair and made her a mess.
2 different actresses. As bad a transition as the 2 Aunt Vivs on Fresh Prince.
I stand corrected. Then yeah, she sucks too.
I've enjoyed it. I've tried to take an Entourage perspective on it. Just give me tits, violence and enough historical accuracy to keep me from being insulted. They've done that. Lots of fun.
While the transition to a new Spartacus was rough, the biggest blow was the loss of Batiatus (sp?) IMO. He was the arguably the best character/actor in the series.
I think this season has mostly sucked unless you mute it just to watch the tits and violence. The Nevia actress is terrible, and the writing has been atrocious this season. I used to watch an episode all week long waiting for the next one. This season it's been watch it on Friday and then ignore it when it replays all week.
