Default Spartacus Blood and Sand

Anyone seen this?

I've watched the first two episodes, its like a cross between Gladiator, Spartacus, 300 and Shakespeare with a lot of language, nudity and violence.



Fucking awesome show, the effects and blood are a little ott, the acting is shit, the cinematography is shit, but its entertaining.

I nearly spat my drink out when one of the Thracians yells "Kill the CUNTS" in an English accent. One of those "what did he just say?" moments.

Lucy Lawless gets her kit off 10 years too late though, so be prepared...

What channel is it on? Heard it was due to come to free view viewers???

We are charged with the reunification of mankind, throughout the stars, in the name of the Emperor. We seek to establish compliance amongst all the fragmentary and disparate strands. Most greet us like the lost brothers we are. You resisted.

I agree, what channel is this on? I might be able to catch the third depending on what and when. It seems very interesting, with the looks of 300 but the atmosphere of Gladiator

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

I don't think its on here in the UK until the summer. You'll have to use torrents or the "link" I gave you.

I just download them off Demonoid.

The trailer looks like 300: the series, with more tits and worse acting. Does seem like good fodder for brainless slobbing about at 1 in the morning though

I can't see the foul language effecting me though, the Kick Ass trailer has already stolen my heart for best use of the C word this year.

OK, Varakir, that trailer actually made me spit Pepsi Max (I live on that shit) on my monitor. Good job

And I too have been a convert to the cause of S:BaS for a week or two. It's not exactly highbrow but it's fucking fun, and there's always room for a bit of fun.

I don't think 'Hit Chav' would be a good film title though.

Unless it was a command.

Just watched the first episode. This show is fucking AWESOME! If I was asked as a teenager to come up with a television show, this would have been it. A sword fight, a battle scene and a nice pair of tits on show, all before the first break. I may have to watch it again, just in case I missed anything...

I've watched the whole first season, its the best show I've ever seen and gets better and better. They were due to start filming the second season soon but Spartacus was diagnosed with cancer or something so they're holding out until he recovers.
