Default Spartacus Season 3: Vengeance

Not sure if any of you caught the first 2 seasons, but this is one of the greatest series I have ever watched, and the next season begins in January on STARZ.

I would, watch this but i don't know how good it'll be seeming as how the Original Spartacus (Andy Whitfield) has sadly passed R.I.P.

I feel they managed to pull it off for season two but can they muster a third?

Series was ok, mainly because of Andy Whitfield and John Hannah. Now since both of them are off from this show, dont expect too much anymore. This is just lightly made entertainment for mainstream audience and it seemed few espisodes didnt carry story forwards but it seemed to drag on.

I still dont mean its bad, first season was quite good actually but its nowhere near what i call great series. Its just pure entertainment and not much historical drama.

I guess I never watched it for It's historically accuracy or lack there of. I enjoy gratuitous violence, and bloodshed. Andy Whitfield was a great actor and will be horribly missed, but I think all the elements of the show that appealed to me will still be there in full crimson glory.

I have to say, that looks bad ass. Glad they at least got someone similar looking to replace Whitfield (rip).

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Oh nice! At 1:21 you can see Gannicus fighting, I guess he's back for the new season. So Spartacus, Gannicus, Crixus and Doctore all on the same team? Its going to be badass.

I watched the 5th episode of Spartacus: Vengeance last night on the net, its been on in America. It was.... BLOODY EPIC!

I won't give spoilers but a clue. If you thought what the gladiators do at Batiatus's villa was bloody, you haven't seen anything yet.

What are the opinions of this season thus far? I think its pretty good.

I'm liking it, though I'm continuously amazed by how gruff the 'new' Spartacus' voice is- he doesn't look like he should have a voice that deep

It helped me to accept the new actor when I found out he was selected by Andy Whitfield to replace him.

Pretty good season, and episode 5 is an ace, great action, and we see my favourite character again.

Not a big fan of the new actor playing Spartacus. But in all fairness, he's doing alright for the spot he has to fill. Crixus is still the same old badass.

The 3rd season started off pretty slow, but the last episode was FUCKING AMAZING! LOTS OF DEAD PEOPLE! love it.
