    That was excellent. Up there with the season one finale!

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    The arena destruction was a bit of a cop out. I wanted to see Crixus and Oenomaus tearing the sand up, and then fighting their way out with Spartacus and Gannicus.

    So very true. To his credit, this new guys giving it a go too seeing as they were pretty much impossibly big shoes to fill.

    Quality episode this week, I thought. Getting near to the best of
    season 1. How much of a snake does Ilithyia have to be for me to almost feel sorry for Glaber?

    Some truly appalling CG in that last ep. :D

    That was utterly awesome. It felt like a season finale it was so epic. Great to see Gannicus again.

    The pace of the season so far is a bit weird, one moment they're moving stealthily through a forest, the next some of them are involved in the epicnees. I imagine the next episode will be a bit 'calmer'.

    Can't wait for the next episodes, especially now three members of the senate (or whatever it's called) are dead.

    @Psychotext - Only really dodgy CG was the crowd falling in the arena stands, if you ask me.

    @Errol

    I think it's more a case of the show being different, as opposed to worse because Whitfield is not Spartacus.

    I'm used to McIntyre now, I think he's doing a fine job tbh. No point sitting there watching it, wondering what might have been.

    It was all over the place. That was especially bad, but plenty of the wounds were really poorly done in that episode too.

    Not fussed by the CG as I was close to cheering my TV at the end, Glaber getting his revenge in was rather good too.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Budget constraints :)

    Did you guys hear the news about Jai Courtney (Varro)? He's playing McClane's son in the new Die Hard film, and if I'm not mistaken he's in another Hollywood film too. Good for him, shame they killed Varro off. I mean it was well done - quite moving - and it made sense in the context of the story, but I thought Varro was great.

    Ok, that was MUCH better. Spartacus is still a girly man, but the supporting cast is really coming into its own now.

    Was great to see Gannicus back, even in his new broody form. The Syrian is coming into his own too.

    Just watching this now and I have to agree. This season is starting to grow on me.

    I still miss Bathiatus though :-(

    I loved how Ashur proved his point in the last episode:

    by showing how able gladiators are, even he took on about 5 Roman soldiers and won

    It was specifically part of the dialog. Pay attention. :D

    The German guy in the latest episode was pretty brainless. He sure won't be able to face the Romans now.

    On another note, I find it slightly amusing how easily the gladiators have taken down even places that are supposed to be heavily guarded. The mines attack, for example, was supposed to be a suicide mission, but he only lost a few guys - and even then only because Ashur happened to show up. Same with this episode, really, except that it was even more of a cakewalk.

    Which is not to say that I don't love the show to death. It's just funny, is all.

    Still enjoying, a few lol moments though - The women fighting.....just why. Also, the banging on the shield/chests /criiiiiiiiiiiiiiinge.

    Should be used to it by now I suppose.

    Is there a gif of that doing the rounds?

    Made me laugh. Actually I think that might have been in the extended pre-season trailer too.

    Isn't she meant to be in her mid-teens?

    The actress who plays her is about 20 iirc. She's actually been in a movie with the simply stunning Viva Bianca (Ilithyia) too. About prostitutes. So tits out there as well I imagine.

    Fucking hell I love this show. Just thought I'd say that, because this season (including the latest ep) has been bloody great so far. It's just so trashily addictive.

    Remember when we (we as in just about every Spartacus fan on the planet) were worried about this season and how they'd cope without Whitfield and Hannah/Batiatus?

    Credit to them for carrying on - with Whitfield's blessing - and delivering another great season.

    To lose your two main actors after just one full season (plus Gods of the Arena for Hannah at least) is obviously uncommon, and I respect them for what they've done with the show. It's very entertaining television.

    So this actually got good then? I turned it off in disgust halfway through the first episode and never returned to it.
