Spartacus has been some of the most entertaining TV I have ever seen. It's so over the top you just relish every guilty moment. I even got my wife loving the show after her first impressions were proven wrong ( but I suspect it's down to Ganacus ) It's been leading to this as Spartacus and his rebellion take on the full force of the Roman Empire, but if you know the show the plot twist and turns as the Roman senate turns toward Marcus Crassus for aide. This Roman general is not like the rest as he respects Spartacus and refuses to make the same mistakes that Glaber and his predecessors did. Add to this we have a young Julius Caesar and both are detimed to crush Spartacus's rebellion. The story also shows cracks in the relationship of Crixus and Spartacus as they prepare a full on war with Rome. It's not a spoiler to say it doesn't end well for the rebellion, but even in the final episode the show keeps on tracks and never gives in to sympathy. After Blood and Sand having Liam McIntyre take over from Andy Whitfield for Vengeance, the change of actor was at first a little jarring has McIntyre has a smaller frame, but now he makes the role his own with very satisfactory results.To have a show that has kept quality and a fan base growing is a credit to the writing and as the end credits roll keep watching until the end for a brilliant and fittingly respectful pay off to the original Spartacus Andy Whitfield who sadly died.
This is thrilling TV at it's best and has never been anything less than must see viewing that will be sadly missed.
