No one can match the original Spartacus season one !!! Blood and Sand with Andy Whitfield is a masterpiece of television, it has heart, weight and gravity that cant be recreated ever because he died. The 2nd and 3rd seasons are entertaining and very bloody but stiff and poorly(silly) written. Gannicus, Ceasar and Crassus are excellent. fun to watch and good for teens and my girlfriend liked the hulking half naked men beating each other to death ~ 420

Sorry Spartacus fans. I tried, but couldn't force myself to watch past the first disk in the third season. This series was turning into a bonafide soap opera. The first season was good, and the second was okay, but this one was simply too much.

All good shows must come to an end, and knowing history you know Caesar would not fall unfortuneately to Spartacus. Todd LaSance, the actor who played Caesar was great. Gannicus' end was fitting to him. Did anyone catch Argon's poka dotted briefs in the end?

Finally, the ex-gladiators had a mission and leader. But viewers know from history that the rebels would be doomed when a young Caesar surfaced in the story. Nonetheless, great story of camaraderie, ambition, war strategy and freedom pursuit (see quotes) though much of the blood and nudity were unwarranted in mho.

The visual and storylines of this entire show's been consistently captivating!
Definitely one of the few shows where the changing of xters worked out well & One thing I appreciated most in the conclusion of the series was the inclusion of Andy Whitfield inspite of his unfortunate death.
This' how a series should be--not too long & with complete & variety of storylines.

Great story and action. Lots of sexual imagery and graphic violence. Not for the faint of heart of easily offended.

Two thumbs up!

Spartacus's dying words: Spartacus ... that is not my name. I shall finally hear it again ... given voice by loving wife ... in greeting longed for. Do not shed tear. There is no greater victory ... than to fall from this world a free man.”

Crassus (After defeated Spartacus, the loss of his son, lover and at the political defeat to Pompey): The past cannot be altered. The present holds but regret and loss. It is only in the days to come that a man may find solace ... when memory fades.
