As Andy Whitfield had done such a great job on Blood and Sand, I was glad to see that Liam McIntyre also played the part really well, as did the fine cast.
This season took me longer to get into and was quite slow to begin with, but it soon changes pace and has you gripped. The picture and sound are excellent. If you love the nudity, sex, profanity and gore, with excellent acting and storyline Blood and Sand and Gods of the Arena have to offer, you won't be disappointed with Spartacus Vengeance. However, some Andy Whitfield fans may have a hard time accepting Liam McIntyre.
As for the new Spartacus portrayed by Liam McIntyre, I think he has done a grand job so far in bringing former (and sorely missed) Andy Whitefield's development of the character to life. It took to the end of the first episode to become accustomed to the new actor, and from there on I felt as if Andy was there along with Liam as well.
The other actors, Lucy Lawless, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, Katrina Law to name a few, all were in top notch performance bringing their characters alive once again. My only complaint is that Navia,(a main character from previous episodes in which she in her role as lead slave and gladiator Crixus shared a slow and soon torrid sensuality together),did not show up until later on, around forth episode in, and the new actor portaying her did so as more passive and seemingly fraught, although later on, the old Navia was back in full force much to my pleasure. Whether this was the actors response to how her character was written, I'm not sure. All I know is that Navia, once intelligent and strong, did not disappoint later on when it came time for her vengeance to manifest in a blood chilling scene!Read more ›
It continues that story flawlessly with the same feel to the series that last two did.
Was unsure how things were gong to turn out when the lead in the original series dropped out due to his cancer diagnosis, as well as they were changing the course of the story and had to basically do a complete rewrite of the series itself. In the end it turned out really well and found it be a very enjoyable follow-up to season one, but a somewhat big departure from the story arc in season one.
I highly recommend this show to anyone who liked the first season, or shows like Rome and GoT.

Spartacus is well done and a fantastic series but the blood and gore may turn some off.Published 27 days ago by Leroux Plus
One complaint I have is that when I got this it was not wrapped in plastic, someone had opened it already. Pretty bush league.
