  No Subtitles in Spartacus - not even in Latin!

They did manage to put subtitles on when Sky got their mitts on the series. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any consideration shown by the production people for folks with difficult hearing. Pity really because they would sell a few more.

  Absolutely Amazing

I can rarely sit through long box sets, but right from the off I watched all episodes and boxes sets over the course of a week. I was honestly gripped from the start to the very finish.

If you want to see gory fights on an epeic scale, brutality, erotica, swearing, horror, assassinations, blood and sex, then this series is definately for you.

Dare I say it, but this whole epic saga was more entertaining to watch than 300 and Gladiator - it really is that good! Both those films seems overrated when compared to the Sparactus series.

Personally, my favourite feature of the whole serioes is the pace of the episodes. Each episode has a lot happening in and kind of feels like a mini movie at times.

The first couple of episodes do start out out admitedly slow, but after completly picks up. I'd advise anyone stick with it, as thingts do get a lot better.

  Absolutly incredible

From start to finish its glorious brutality will have you locked into your seat as you watch disc after disc. Worth every penny and the bonus features give you a brilliant insight to how they made such an epic tale come to life.

The legend of the rebel slave.
Spatacus is brought to gory, lusty life in this shamelessly OTT cable series.
Created by Smallville/Angel producer Steven S DeKnight, Blood and sand follows titular warrior Andy Whitefield as he messily dispatches of his foe in the arina and plots the downfall of his captors including his mater's power hungry wife (lucy Lawless). shot in the same saturated slow-mo dismemberment as 300, and featuring frequent bouts of flesh-rending and skin baring. Gods of the Arena is a six part prequel made due to the star Andy Whitfield at the time being taken ill and then sadly loosing his battle with cancer and dieing in August 2011, but although the series is shorter the battles are typicall bloody and the plot is just as good, and is a fitting addition to the original series.
Spartacus Vengeance is the true sequel to Blood and Sand and although having Liam McIntyre replace Andy Whitfield is jarring at first after a few episodes he fits into the role well and anyway you'll be too blood soaked to give a damn. This second season contains all the blood soaked action, bare flesh, villainy and heroism that has come to distinguish this series. The tale of Spartacus is epic.
All the seasons are brilliantly pulpy but irresistible fun on a epic scale.
This is brilliant over the top comic book TV.
