Spartacus: Blood and Sand -- "Shadow Games" -- 02/19/10

Spartacus

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Bitter enemies Spartacus and Crixus are charged with learning to fight as a team in order to take on an unbeaten champion in the arena. Meanwhile, a financially strapped Batiatus receives an opportunity of a lifetime that involves his battling band of gladiators.


Just canceled Starz and I'm now watching this off Netflix streaming. One advantage is they post the episodes early.

This episode was pretty good, as was last week's. Not high art by any means, but enjoyable nonsense. Seems like they're finding their rhythm.

Doctore is a hardcore motherfucker. I'd like to see show about his time as a gladiator.

I can also sort of dig how they're making Crixus sympathetic; he's sort of becoming more like Spartacus while Spartacus is becoming more like him.

Yeah, Doctore is a bad ass. If he can take apart Crixus and Spartacus simultaneously with ease. It makes you wonder why he no longer fights. The show is definitely getting better.

This episode kicked so much ass.
I guess we can safely call this the bloodiest and most violent tv show ever

I agree that this week and last week have been big improvements. Even though they used it a lot less this time, they need to end the stupid inside the helmet shot.

Maybe Nathan Jones - who played Hercules in Jet Li's Fearless?

This episode was filled with all kinds of great stuff. The best episode by far and I liked them all. Don't know how they are going to top this episode.

My predictions.
Slave girl is going to get pregnant.
The the boy slave is going to get raped and his boyfriend is going to kill the guy that raped him.
