How is Spartacus S3?

Or is it season 2? Didn't know if the prequel season was technically season 2. Anyway, my brother begged me to watch this show with him when season 1 was going. I watched the first episode, was pretty underwhelmed, then as a result didn't get around to watching the rest of it until a few months later. I loved it. It gets so damn much better and the ending was really really satisfying. The prequel mini-season was awesome as well. Then I heard about Andy Whitfield dying, and haven't gotten around to watching any of the episodes with the new guy as Spartacus. Is it still good?

Sounds like he's talking about last season. It was good. The new guy takes a little getting used to, but it was still good and if you liked season one and the prequel season, you will still like season 2. I have not seen season 3 this year yet, but they are on my DVR and I will be watching them when I have some time.

Finished season two and am halfway through season one... really, really enjoyed the back story provided by season two, what a world it must have been back then... i'm officially a huge fan now.

Season one, while lacking the production values (particularly the cgi) of forthcoming seasons, may be my favorite so far and it mostly has to do with Andy Whitfield... he just has a much bigger range of emotion than the new guy, he also actually looks like he could be Bulgarian/Thracian, the new guy lacks his range and looks like just another pretty boy englishman.

The fight choreography is truly incredible, some of the very best sequences you'll find anywhere... spartacus and crixxus(sp?) vs theocales was brutal or the free for all in the circle of fire at the end of season two... awesome.

But like i said in an earlier post, season three REALLY seems tamed down so far... way less gore and sex, plus this new guy simply doesnt have Whitfields gravitas, not at all, what a shame the guy died of cancer.

Without any spoilers, is the guy with the bum leg (name escapes me) still on the show? He is my favorite character.

Ah, the conniving rat? to be honest i've yet to see him on season three... i havent seen him killed off yet, but maybe they just left him out of the new season since the house of battiatus is no more and they presumed him to have went on about his way or whatever.

Hmm, well i guess he could still be part of the plan then, the prequel was season two so he could conceivably be around for three, but i havent seen him yet.

No, the prequel was not season two.. The prequel was a prequel or season zero.. Season 2 was when the new Spartacus took over..

This season sucks ass. Not enough of what made the first two good to bother finishing it out.

I'm done.

That was my biggest problem. It is difficult to transfer from gladiator to full scale war.

It still has some potential. I'll see it out.

It's different, not as enjoyable, but still watchable.

I've been REALLY disappointed in the last two episodes, its like they're just mailing in the final season, i'd be willing to bet the original lineup of directors and writers arent even working on it anymore.

The dialogue has gotten reeeal corny and clunky.

The fight scenes are suffering, last week when Spartacus, Gannacus and co. are ambushed by the romans when the ship docked, Gannacus goes for a guys legs with his sword and the guy leaps forward in a somersault long before the sword gets anywhere near him, it was painfully obvious and they just went ahead with it.

The new black chick who plays Crixxus girl flat out SUCKS as an actress.

Even the costumes are lacking believability... too clean when they should look dirty, too dirty when they should be cleaner, too many extras in identical, cookie cutter getups.

Its too bad because the first two seasons were ****ing excellent, new episode tonight at 8, but i'm preparing to be disappointed again.

Last episode on at 10 central tonight, i almost forgot.

Its a two part episode and i'm only catching the last 15 minutes of the second to last show -drats-... looking forward to the last episode of what was a KILLER series, atleast for a while.

ed* they've apparently changed tactics and are only doing the second to last show tonight, i SWEAR they said it was a two part finale 2 weeks ago.

SERIES finale? Nice. I still haven't started watching again lol. Last time I left off, the gang was looking for Crixus chick (forgot her name) in the mines. Crixus got taken but they got the girl I believe. It was 2 or 3 episodes into season 2 I believe. I guess it's season 2. I refer to it with my brother as season 3 because I count Gods of the Arena as season 2 in my little stupid world.
