I was originally not going to watch Spartacus, saw it on Netflix and I will admit... The thing that drew me in was the knowledge that Lucy Lawless was in it. And I am so glad that I didn't overlook it. The actors, writers and crew do a fantastic job portraying the time period. And the filming style and blood gives a nice nod towards 300.
So many strong and well written characters for both genders, had plenty of favorites and was sad to see some of them meet an untimely demise. But every death for a major character was well thought out. RIP Andy Whitfield, you did a fantastic job and are definitely missed.
