‘Spartacus: War of the Damned’ Will be Final Season

I’m not sure it should come as a surprise to anyone that Spartacus couldn’t last forever. I mean how many Romans can really come at Spartacus and get killed in such creative fashion? And here’s a huge spoiler from the history books, Spartacus and the other slaves do eventually end up losing. Sure, the show isn’t … Continue reading ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned’ Will be Final Season

Spartacus Season 2: Vengeance – Episode 6 “Chosen Path”

With many shows on the pay channels such as HBO and Starz, it’s very hard for them to follow up brilliant episodes with anything even close to the potential exhibited the week before. Spartacus this season, I have noticed, is the exception. Last weeks assault and basic massacre at the arena in Capua was nothing … Continue reading Spartacus Season 2: Vengeance – Episode 6 “Chosen Path”

Spartacus Season 2: Vengeance – Episode 5 “Libertus”

*FULL SPOILERS FOLLOW* This episode of Spartacus reminded me a whole lot of the finale of season one, Blood and Sand. It starts off with Oenomaus, Crixus and Rashko facing death in the arena Ad-Gladium…. at the hands of Gannicus and several other gladiators. Yes Gannicus is back and the episode begins with him and … Continue reading Spartacus Season 2: Vengeance – Episode 5 “Libertus”

Spartacus Season 2: Vengeance – Episode 4 “Empty Hands”

It seemed like the rescue of Naevia was going very well in the last episode. They infiltrated the mines after killing the guards and disguising themselves as Romans. They even seemed to have Glaber’s troops fooled when they came searching for the rebel slaves, until Ashur had to go and ruin things for them. Now … Continue reading Spartacus Season 2: Vengeance – Episode 4 “Empty Hands”

Spartacus Season 2: Vengeance – Episode 3 “The Greater Good”

This was by far the best episode of the season yet, and that is pretty good for only the third episode. It would seem that Lucretia unleashing that little bit of information about Gannicus and Oenomaus’ wife Melitta happened a lot sooner than I thought, as she and Ashur worked towards gaining the location and … Continue reading Spartacus Season 2: Vengeance – Episode 3 “The Greater Good”

Spartacus: Vengeance – Episode 2 “A Place in This World”

I’ve officially slipped right back into Spartacus mode. Any reluctance or slight misgivings I may have had about Liam McIntyre as Spartacus are now moot. The series is really picking up again and it’s as good as it once was. I thought it was a nice touch in the episode when they tied all three … Continue reading Spartacus: Vengeance – Episode 2 “A Place in This World”

Spartacus: Vengeance – Episode 1 “Fugitivus”

Two years have passed and the Starz original series Spartacus has not missed a beat. (Good thing they stayed ready with Gods of the Arena) The story picks up not too far from where Blood and Sand left off; Spartacus, Crixus and the other freed slaves are on the run and committing attacks against Romans throughout … Continue reading Spartacus: Vengeance – Episode 1 “Fugitivus”

Spartacus Vengeance: Full Trailer! More Blood!

As much as I liked the little teaser trailer from Comic-Con of Spartacus: Vengeance, the extended one that ran on Starz a few days after is far superior. Not only did it have the most face slashes and stabs I’ve ever seen in my life, but it gave us a few glimpses of some of … Continue reading Spartacus Vengeance: Full Trailer! More Blood!
