For those of you that haven't heard about or even seen this series .. IMHO it is one of the best for ages . Bit raunchy and bloodthirsty in places but give it time and you will watch the episodes one after the other. We couldn't wait for the release of each new episode.
Not been show in UK yet. only on Starz USA and has only been available via downloads.

Well, this one is going to be a hit for Starz. It will sell good on DVD's also. As far as I think will happen. Visually it is a kind of hybrid between "Gladiator" and "300". The story is way more action and fight oriented than HBO's "Rome" for example. We all know the story - the enslaved Thracian (from the lands where the country Bulgaria is right now), who fought his way trough the arenas of Rome and eventually lead a army of followers against Rome. How he died is unknown. We'll see how Starz will show that in a year. They started season 2, probably estimating that Season 1 will be a success. What I saw from the first movie, I also think "Spartacus" will make it big time. Lot's of blood, skin and all other components needed for a good ratings. Good luck for those new series.
