Not sure how this got past me but, this new original series on Starz looks like all kinds of awesomeness. To me, it looks like a cross between 300 and Gladiator. The only issue I have is that many of the scenes look very CGI. Anyone else agree? Anyways, if you are like me, this somehow got by you as well.
Spartacus official site: Betrayed by the Romans. Forced into slavery. Reborn as a Gladiator. The classic tale of the Republic’s most infamous rebel comes alive in the graphic and visceral new series, Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Torn from his homeland and the woman he loves, Spartacus is condemned to the brutal world of the arena where blood and death are primetime entertainment. But not all battles are fought upon the sands. Treachery, corruption, and the allure of sensual pleasures will constantly test Spartacus. To survive, he must become more than a man. More than a gladiator. He must become a legend.
Ok be honest, who else missed this and is now really excited to see this?
