    Spartacus

    Anyone watch this last night? It is basically Gladiator turned into a series but I thought it was a pretty good show so far.

    Re: Spartacus

    Well, Gladiator was basically a new version of the Spartacus story, so it makes sense that there would be similarities.

    Really want to see the show but I dont have Starz.

    All I meant was it was like watching the same thing just with different effects.

    Can't beat the original...even though it is cheesy at times...great movie!

    I did not realize it is on 101! I will have to record it.

    And here I was hoping it was about the Kubrick film. Too much to hope for, I guess.

    Yeah, still violent, but less slow motion fake blood splatter. Still some, but not as much.

    Lots of slow motion splatter from last weeks episode, though. I think the acting is cheesy as hell and that the storyline is a rather old one, but I still think the violence/nudity make up for it.
