Betrayed by his country. Beaten into slavery. Reborn as a warrior. "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" is a graphic and visceral account of Rome’s most famous gladiator. When he’s separated from the love of his life, Spartacus is forced into the gruesome and bloodthirsty arena, where a grisly death is primetime entertainment. Spartacus must fight for survival, befriend his enemies and play politics in this new world of corruption, violence, sex and fame. He’ll be seduced by power and tormented by vengeance. But his passion will give him the strength to prevail over every obstacle, in this modern and uninhibited tale of death, honor and endurance.

OMG! The season 1 finale was absolutely AWESOME!!! Too bad that the S02 is hanging on a thin line... not yet renewed for season 2.. kinda sucks.. the show has its potential. One less good series, or...? We shall see! ;]

Only seen the 1st half, but a good program. Not as good as the Tudors but fun. Some of the cinematography smacks of "300" or "gladiator", not necessarily in a bad way. I like the fight scenes, but the monty python-style slow-mo blood splashes are frequent and increasingly irritating. The CGI blood spurts look cartoonish.

It also reminds me (not surprisingly) of HBO's ROME, with less of the whiny emo feel.

Andy Whitfield has been confirmed not to return for the series second season because of a recurrence of his cancer. Kinda sucks, I would've preferred a sequel over a prequel but we'll see what they'll make of it.
Hopefully he'll be returning if they make a 3rd season.

Damn.. The season finale was great.. Heard the lead actor suffers from cancer though? So the second season will be a prequel to this one?

The first few episodes aren't that good. The pilot didn't really wake any interest to watch any further episodes but I'm glad I did watch a few more cause what an awesome series. The story really starts to develop after a while with some nice plot twists.

The Season 1 finale was awesome, can't wait for Season 2 :>

It got *a lot* better. I didn't like the pilot that much either but the show really picks up after a couple more episodes. Now it's one of my favourite shows :)

Did this show get any better after the pilot? Because the pilot was pretty meh.
