I enjoyed the first one. Makes me wanna order Starz just for that, but I'll just have to wait til the dvd comes out because there's like no megavideo and stuff anymore. I'm a sad sad panda..

. It's not his fault, he's just not Spartacus.

I just can't wait until Gannicus shows up!
I like the new season. The new guy is no Andy Whitfield, but he's trying.

This is by far the worst of the 3 seasons so far to me.
I hate who they have acting as spartacus.
He's just so weak in everyway. He has a power lacking from his voice and he's in terrible shape compared to everyone else.
Also I feel like outside of the lutus they've lost a lot of structure. It's harder for them to come up with a good story line.
I still like it though and it seems to be growing stronger as each episode goes by so I'll continue to watch it.

I thought they were gonna rewrite history when he started wailing on him with the stone so I was relieved when he just knocked him out. Big mistake though, now Oenomaus and his best student are together again, unless Spartacus was his best student. Hes gotta beat up Gannicus first though, seems like he was okay with it when he said "What does a slave know of love?"

Rewrite history? What does that mean?
And at the last part, what are you talking about? Gannicus is not around anymore. That was the champion in the season they made foreshadowing the rise of the house of batiatis. The seasons with Spartacus and crixus must take place at least fifteen years after that. Or are you talking about the few scenes showing onamaous' past? I don't think theyre going to show any more of that.

Based on real people? Ya. They know the distinct history of a few individual gladiators from ancient Rome, their friendships and enemies, their love lives, and can follow a single ludus for a full two generations or more. I dont think so. Granted the overall plot line of gladiators terrorizing Rome may be true, no way in hell the writers know about such a detailed drama from over two thousand years ago.

Exactly, artistic liberties are taken in any historical drama. I don't believe everything I'm watching is EXACTLY how it played out in real life or if its even real at all, characters must be made up, locations changed and events altered. But I didn't think they'd kill Spartacus' second in command before the rebellion was in full swing, he lives to lead his own army then dies in combat is certainly more fitting than he broke into a mine to break out is girlfriend then was killed himself in the process. Gannicus is also a figurehead in the rebellion, that's why i know he'll be back, whether or not Oenomaus and him were actually friends in real life then their relationship changed over a women, I can't attest to that, I wasn't there watching these events go down.
