I've been waiting for this to come out for a while. Being a fan of the first Spartacus I am looking forward to the start of the new series tonight on Starz. But, I believe they will be playing them on instant Netflix like the first series. Because the star, Andy Whitfield, is fighting cancer they went with this 6 episode prequel showing the back story to some of the gladiators we knew in the first series. It's filmed in the very stylized manner as the others and there is no flinching away from sex and violence. After all it is set in Rome.
If you are a fan of the first of missed the first series it is playing on instant on Netflix again. Or go out and buy the bluray discs, they look incredible. Have a great Friday everyone and see on the weekend.
