^^^^

You forgot the SEX SCENES!

I'm looking forward to seeing how badly Go! butcher it. Then again, they didn't butcher the quasi-soft-core-gay-porn Dante's Cove (although they later got in trouble for not editing enough).

Cheers.

Well there were sex scenes but no bare boobs :-(
They must have dubbed Frick over most of the swearing.
There was blood but no guts.
Otherwise very enjoyable. Visually and direction wise they obviously copied 300 with all those pausing slow mo bits in the fight scenes.
Its better then most things on over on free to air at the moment.

So was it heavily edited? I watched it and didn't think much of the fight scenes compared to what ive read about it, can you buy the full version dvds at all?

Wow. VERY PG!

Bit of a shame for the Aussie fans who don't like to flout the law.

It's interesting to watch, but I much prefer the "real" version and I'm looking forward to buying the Blu-Ray and re-watching the entire series again.

Cheers.

Jeez, that was some of the worst blue/green screening I've seen since V.

pale

If you can't do better than that, then best not to do it at all IMHO... thumbs down

Now HERE is some decent TV compositing:

I just watched this lot again and for the life of me I cannot see how they can screen the final episode so it makes any sort of sense being tamed down

I watched part of an episode just out of curiosity, and the amount cut out of it was just mind boggling, so yeah, how they can possibly show the last couple of episodes and have them make any sort of sense is frankly pretty baffling.

It's a crime what they've done to Spartacus!

I can't believe Starz would sell this PG crap to international markets! It's disrespectful to the creators who Starz encouraged to push the envelope, but then decided that the bloody, sexy, naked version of the envelope had to be tamed in order to make more money.

Thank Jupiter's "crotch" for the blu-ray version which will have content that even Starz didn't want to screen.

Cheers.

Unfortunately news released yesterday that Spartacus star Andy Whitfield's cancer has returned, and he has had to step aside from the series as he returns to treatment.

Starz has not yet revealed what their plans are for season 2, which was about to start shooting soon, whether they will go ahead with the show, and rewrite or recast, or whether they will delay or even pull the show...after all losing the star of the show is a big thing indeed. I imagine there's some pretty frantic meetings right about now.

Personally I hope they make another mini season for next year (after the prequel mini that is set to air in January), maybe focus on the growing legend of the free Spartacus, without actually showing him, and further delay the planned season two arc in the hopes that Whitfield can finally beat this thing, and once better, can then return to the show.

Either way I wish the guy all the best, facing cancer is hard enough, but as an actor who finally got his breakthrough role, the added thought of posibly losing that role now even if he (hopefully) does recover must be doubly gutting...

Poor guy.

Hopefully the second round of treatment is successful.

I'd happily watch a Spartacus-free second season if it meant Andy Whitfield could remain in the role, but even with the prequel, I'm not sure how long Starz can market a show called "Spartacus" without the title character on-screen.

Cheers.

Yeah, I know what you mean...

Weird thing is Starz had to cancel their show Crash after the conclusion of it's second season because Dennis Hopper's illness was taking a turn for the worse. They held off making a third season commitment at first to see if Hopper's health would improve, then when it became clear that there wasn't going to be any improvement, and in fact Hopper was sadly getting worse, they pulled the plug on the show and moved on, despite it being an ensemble show with a large cast that still rated well (in fact it was Starz best rated show until Spartacus came along), and one that could have continued on without Hopper and his character. Mind you they also closed off enough threads that it kind of gave them options to go either way anyhow...

Still, makes you wonder what might happen here as they face a similar situation all over again...

I would be interested in a second season which focused on how the Roman higher-ups react to the events of the season 1 finale.

*** SPOILERS ***





We could still "hear" about Spartacus' exploits, but the "main" characters would be Glaber, Ilythia, Lucretia and perhaps Ashur as well as a new "big bad" to replace Batiatus. Then season 3 could heavily focus on Spartacus and friends, but essentially cover the same period of time as season 2 (but show Spartacus' side of the story).

Season 4 could then go back to the standard "shared" story line season 1 (if they made it that far).

Cheers.

As necessary as it may well have been to recast (and none of us know the inside scoop on just what the long term prognosis is, after all...), I think it is going to be a hell of an uphill struggle to cast someone who can hold their own in that role now, let alone be anywhere near as good in the role as he was. And the show will live or die now on just how well, or not, they manage to cast Spartacus 2.0, and not only get someone with the screen presence and acting chops to pull off the role, but also get someone who the fans of the show will actually be able to accept...

I don't envy them their job in trying to do just that either...

I'm happy that they're recasting "Spartacus" instead of cancelling the series.

It will be difficult for Starz to find someone who is talented and who is accepted by the fans, but (and in typing this I mean no disrespect to Andy Whitfield), I didn't find Andy Whitfield to be the strongest or the most charismatic actor on the show. I felt that in almost all scenes he was over-shadowed by the actors playing Batiatus and especially those actors playing Crixus and Doctore.

Cheers.
