Lycaon Posted April 23, 2010 Share Posted April 23, 2010 (edited) 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. Starring Australian actor, Andy Whitfield (McLeod's Daughters) as Spartacus, Lucy Lawless ("Xena: Warrior Princess") as Lucretia, John Hannah (The Mummy, Four Weddings and A Funeral) as Batiatus and Peter Mensah (300, The Incredible Hulk) as Doctore, this unique mix of live action, graphic novel effects and brutal battle sequences is set to make "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" an epic television event. Directed by Grady Hall and Rick Jacobson, Spartacus: Blood and Sand comes to life with the unique vision and outlook they bring to the series. http://www.starz.com/originals/spartacus Just started watching this series (2 episodes in), and I'm liking it thus far. Anyone else watching this? Edited April 23, 2010 by Lycaon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
