Have you been watching the new show Spartacus: Blood and Sand on Starz? At my house, the guys are all into it and I admit I’ve watched it myself.
Coming up on Friday is a new episode “Legends,” airing at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Starz. Here is the episode description: Though Spartacus (Andy Whitfield) proved himself during training and now wears the attire of a gladiator, his coarse attitude and relentless quest to see his wife isolates him from his fellow gladiators and Doctore (Peter Mensah).
Here, Spartacus gives in to his rage and attacks Crixus (Manu Bennett).
Meanwhile, finances are causing problems for Batiatus (John Hannah), but his wife Lucretia (Lucy Lawless) reminds him that you have to “spend coin to receive coin.” I guess that is an old-fashioned way to say “you have to spend money to make money.”
My thoughts on the show so far: I can’t wait until Spartacus gets his revenge on Glaber (Craig Parker). I want to know if he will see his wife again and I feel sorry for the guy because everything seems out of his control.
Does the use of splattering blood work for you on Spartacus: Blood and Sand? For me, it’s a little over the top. I think it if they would use it sparingly per episode it would have a better effect. Same with the slow-motion moves. Use them only a few times instead of in every other scene.
