Oh, how I love this show. It’s definitely my favourite atm.
Part of why it’s grown on me so is that I started watching it without any expectations, not knowing anything about it (other than the obvious – gladiators, yay eye candy!). So it was campy entertainment and the delicious dialogue and manner of speech that had me coming back initially.
I remember that the fourth episode had me thinking that it was getting quite serious (“The Thing in the Pit” was probably one of the toughest eppies in the series, lots of violence there…o_O). I thoroughly enjoyed the next episode, and then I remained quite speechless at the end of the sixth one (“Delicate Things”) and came to the conclusion that “these guys actually mean business”.
It was an incredible ride since, every episode managing to somehow top the one before, and I was sold. The finale was undoubtedly the best season finale I’ve ever seen. Ever. I was completely satisfied.
My favourite charrie is definitely Crixus. He looks amazing (yeah, I’m a perv, I know
), but most importantly the character development he got has been so compelling, and I loved
Here’s hoping we get more soon, and fingers crossed that it’s as good as the first taste!
EDIT: I see there are two threads for Spartacus: Blood and Sand
? Hope this was the right place to post.
