This Is Spartacus !
I think the first season was the best ! A solid acting , great script and an amazing story .
with the next season , things got a little bit disappointing , the acting was not passionate enough .
Overall , It's still a great series to watch , I hope the last season will bring more surprises and add some passion to the show !
I personally loved the first Spartacus. He was perfectly picked for the part. I do not agree to the new pick because I feel he did not capture the same affect that Andy just seemed a whole new character as did the new Navea.
So I decided it was best to think of season3 as a whole new show. It helped me to accept the inferior actors and give them a chance. I do not imagine the new Spartacus the same as the Champion of Capua. I think him the leader of a slave army having no connection to the man in season one.moreless
the new spartacus not ok
I just can't watch this new pretty boy prance around in the shoes of the once great spartacus from season one. How can you go from Andy as a tragically flawed, infinitely dimensional, gritty man hero to Liam a physically inferior dial tone who is as much predictable as he is dispassionate. As far as I'm concerned the show ended with season 1. I'm sorry Andy but you left to high of a standard behind. man.
the 2 spartacus's
is it just me are these 2 actors the same ? ive only just been watching it and the 2 are so identical its hard to tell em apart ...
ive gone back to season 1 again to watch again they just seem like the same actor to me ...
im struggling to understand how no1 else is seeing the same
Revenge is sweet!
This season starts just after Spartacus and his group of freed slaves leave the House of Batiatus. He's revenge-oriented but ends up realizing he won't achieve much on his own and understands he has a role to play now - that of a leader. The series obviously departures from the arena and the gladiator's story to explore new scenarios and angles, but that doesn't mean lack of adventure or action - there's actually plenty of both! The writing on this show never ceases to impress me: it is cohesive and purposeful, you never get the feeling that the plot is not getting anywhere or characters are being wasted; and it was nice to realize how the big theme of this season, vengeance, guides the whole story and other characters, not only the obvious Spartacus-wants-to-kill-Glabber aspect. Everyone seems to be seeking retribution somehow, which is made clear with a great and grand finale. Not to be missed!moreless
Different but good.
Liam stepped into some big shoes but I think he pulled the role off well.
This season honestly had one of the best finales I have seen, ever. I was blown away. The filming and stylistic blood that has become a trademark of the show was definitely improved upon. They got some flashy new equipment that allowed for some great slow motion shots. The storyline for me was also not lacking, the villians and heros were both well written.
Lucretia especially just... Was amazing. Her death had me feeling sad but at the same time completely in awe. It was just really, really well done.moreless
Good but not as good
Yes it's an absolute shame that Andy died. In saying so I will also say that I won't base this season due to that fact.
It a good follow up overall but many things did bother me. I didn't like the departure from the arena but it was needed to move the story. I also had many moments where I ask "wtf, just escape and live your life's". Maybe it's because I know what will happen in the long run since I know my history as well. I was also surprised to see the journey go about half way and not to the eventual end. I never looked up if they will make the conclusion season for this. If it does they will need to pull many rabbits out of many hats to make it more compelling to watch.
Over all it was fun to watch and I would still recommend it, just not as much as the first two seasons.moreless
