Going by the above post it is yet to air so there should be no discussions on it. Anymore and people will find their posts deleted.

It takes on the look of 300 and tries to be a replacement for Rome but some of the casting is wrong so they can't pull it off.

Lucy Lawless Boob!!!!

Removed. Nothing wrong with the pics, but if users click on them, the site adverts are showing porn.

1x01

I enjoyed it though I imagine many wont. At times the vision of the producers badly exceeded their CGI budget and I can see that many people wont like the way the fight scenes were shot.

Me I liked the gore and the stylistic way it was shot and coloured and choreographed. I read on another forum that this show was best looked at as a live action graphic novel a view point I agree with.

They spent the whole episode never mentioning our heroes name.

The only thing I didn't like was the swearing it didn't feel organic to the speech of the characters but more like kids on a school playground acting up to show how big they are.

In an interview Lawless says that its not until 1x05 that the show really hits its stride oh and they've already ordered S2

I thought it was good but agree with the swearing. Now don't get me wrong I don't find it, and I don't mindit in bucket loads either. But this had LOADS and did feel forced.

The budget for this must be tiny as the CGI was aweful, that bit where the Spartacus is saying goodbye to his wife (who by the way is extreamly hot) was terrible you could tell it was all done on a soundstage. And the slow motion is going to get real old real fast.

But all that can beforgiven as it is quite entertaining.

Despite the appalling acting on view & some dreadful dialogue (their use of swearing, which I normally don't mind, just made me wince), I found this to be a delicious guilty pleasure. I loved the look of 300 which this clearly steals from, and despite their lowly budget, I thought it still looked great for a tv production. The OTT blood & dismemberments in particular are just awesome. Throw in plenty of hot babe nakedness & i'm more than happy.

It just about works if you try and view it as a live action comic. But the CGI is laughable, the sets are ropey and the acting is wooden.

I'll kip watching it but mainly for boobies.

God this was one of the most awful things I've ever watched..........really looking forward to next week.
Haven't seen a leading man this wooden since Pinocchio and that dialogue "he speaks out of turn yet truth drops from his mouth" !
I think this could be the very definition of guilty pleasure tv.

Yep looks like this could be a real guilty pleasure, it's nothing like Rome, more like 300 for the small screen and just as redicious, but good fun and plenty naked going on
