The Spartacus: The Complete Series box set you've been waiting for is finally happening, with a release date set for September. Not only does the Blu-ray set include Digital HD with Ultraviolet and a few new bonus features not included on the previously released sets, but the limited edition set also comes packaged with a Spartacus collector's figurine.
2012 was a good year for drama, which made it tricky for us to come up with our Top 10 favorite TV dramas for the year. It's not all about shocking moments, plot twists and dramatic reveals. A great drama has a little of everything, including compelling stories, complex characters and the kind of momentum that keeps us eager to tune in each week and on the edge of our seats as we watch each episode. We feel confident that our list of fantastic dramas, presented in no particular order meet this criteria and then some.
The more we're shown of the Spartacus boot camp, the more I like to envision someone with access to all of the this cooking up an excellent 80's training montage, complete with gladiator-sized actors grunting through sit-up regimens and gorgeous Saxa-types carrying people, all in the name of getting into shape for the third season of Spartacus. In absence of throwback to classic 80's cinema, we do have another new look at what's going on with the cast of the excellent Starz drama series. It involves sit-ups.
Those familiar with Starz' Spartacus series know the gladiator-focused drama doesn't shy away from violence. People getting slashed up is a big part of the show, though there is an actual story being told. So it's not all that surprising to hear that the drama topped the list for most deaths per episode, beating out HBO's Game of Thrones by a fair margin.
Last month, we learned that Cabin in the Woods star Anna Hutchison was set to join the excellent Starz drama series Spartacus for the series' third season. At that time, we didn't have any details as to what kind of role she's playing. Today we have a bit more information, as well as some other casting news!
When Spartacus creator Steven DeKnight spoke with the press last month, following the season finale of Starz’ Spartacus: Vengeance, he mentioned the addition of three new female characters who’d be introduced to the series in the third season, but he wouldn’t reveal any details beyond that. We may have our first clue as to one of them.
Starz’ returning series is getting an early start for its second season. The Kelsey Grammer starring drama premiered back in October. Starz has set the Season 2 premiere for the show, and it looks like fans will see Tom Kane back on the small screen this August.
Earlier this week, we shared some of the highlights of an interview Spartacus creator Steven DeKnight did with the press following last Friday’s excellent Vengeance season finale. Today, as promised, we have the full transcript of the conference call. Be warned, not only does it contain some Spartacus Season 3 spoilers, but it’s also quite lengthy.
If you aren’t caught up on Spartacus: Vengeance, there are major spoilers from the finale mentioned, so stop reading now! I doubt I’m alone in still grieving the loss of so many characters during last Friday night’s Spartacus: Vengeance finale. Series creator Steven DeKnight spoke to the press today about the finale and what’s ahead for Season 3.
Holy crap and wow. We knew it would be bloody. We knew the end was probably near for certain characters. But tonight’s finale of Spartacus: Vengeance delivered one stellar moment after another, one of which actually caused me to tear up like the mushy girl that I am, while another was simply jaw-dropping. Suffice to say, vengeance has been served, and the season closed with a stack of bodies. Spoilers from the season finale ahead!
I’m thinking it will be very much “on” tonight as Spartacus: Vengeance draws to a close. It feels like only yesterday we were watching the rebels put some distance between themselves and the former house of Batiatus. Will Spartacus get his slice of vengeance tonight, at long last?
Just yesterday, we shared the promo video for this Friday night’s season finale of Spartacus Vengeance. Today we have a clip to show you, which gives us a look at an interesting conversation between Spartacus and another character. Spoilers ahead!
I know we’re supposed to be rooting against the monster duo that is Ilithyia and Glaber, but after last Friday’s episode of Spartacus: Vengeance, I’m really kind of hoping that both of them survive the finale. Is it a long shot? Or will Spartacus finally get his slice of vengeance in the form of Glaber’s head? This promo obviously doesn’t answer that question, but it does tease of fighting to come!
I think tonight’s episode of Spartacus: Vengeance may very well have been my favorite of the season. Granted, we still have one episode left, but “Monsters” really packed a punch, and left a body count. It isn’t even so much about what happened as it is about how it all played out. The execution, which came complete with bits of foreshadowing laced throughout the earlier scenes, worked its way up to an ending that leaves us hanging on until next week’s finale.
This Friday night’s episode of Spartacus: Vengeance is the second to last of the season, or as the promo for the episode states, “the last episode before the season finale.” Or, Episode 9. But the best thing we can call it is “Monsters.” That’s the title, and wow does it stir up some interesting mental pictures. In fact, when I think of “monsters” and Spartacus: Vengeance, the some of Ashur’s buddies come to mind, what with all the skull-stomping and nostril stabbing.
