    Looks like a cross between 300 and Gladiator with more violence and nudity:

    Trailer

    Raimi is a producer on the show, and Lucy Lawless will be in it. Mmm.

    Portable view - Never forget.

    That looks terrible... but I'm compelled to watch it. Hmm.

    Looks almost identical to 300 though! Even got one of the actors from it.

    Looks like Rome for people with ADD.

    Even more big gay orgies than 300? Didn't think it was possible.

    I'm Spartacus and so's my wife.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Oh God that looks horribly derivative.

    And not a patch on Kubrick's Spartacus.

    Just noticed this is up in the usual places. I'm curious, so I'll post some thoughts later.

    Watched the first episode - it's like Gladiator and Rome by someone who's been watching too much 300, not that I hate the idea of that too much. There's a lot of Deadwood-style swearing, ie. they say cunt a lot. There's also quite a few boobs. And ridiculous amounts of blood - including arms, legs and heads coming off.

    I can't say I loved it, but I'll watch the next one to see if this is all it's gonna be :)

    i thought it was fairly entertaining... pretty much what i expected, put your brain on hold and watch the blood and boobs
    from what i've heard, it gets better once the first two episodes are out of the way too, so im cautiously optimistic about it

    If they had left out some of the slow-mo fighting stuff it wouldn't have felt quite like 300: The TV Series but even with all that it was entertaining enough.

    I'll give it a few more episodes to see how it pans out as I do like a good fantasy sword fight. I just hope it hasn't spunked its load in the first episode and it's all talking heads from here...

    I sort of liked it, but it does feel like an adult rated Xena.

    I'll stick with it, purely because I don't have TV channels and it's easy to watch, so it'll pass some time.

    Just got around to watching this. Very entertaining. Really liked Rome, and 300, so this couldn't fail really. :)

    Lucy Lawless gets her tits out a lot, apparently.

    Would have been better if they had taken their queue from Rome IMO. The story side of it all is very lacking.

    Watched the first episode a few nights ago and its genuinely terrible, cheap, badly written, poorly acted drivel

    but I suppose I should give a couple more episodes a try.
