Love this series and I'm watching it right now :yes:
I've seen the first two seasons. Will have to look around for an online streaming.
Is anyone else losing faith in this really quickly? I don't even think Liam is the issue, I think it is the lack of a good villain. Batiatus took up so much screen time in the first season and prequel and he really held the entire thing together. Glaber was a good side villain in the first season but now he just seems like a waste of screen time.
It is also disappointing that nothing has really happened in the first 3 episodes. I'll keep watching but this is getting pretty bad. Hopefully the return of Gannicus will bring some more character into the show.
I agree. Batiatus was great. I don't know who that guy is, but be absolutely nailed that role. Glaba(?) is a dbag, and not a good "character". I think the reintro of Asher, who is not even a real person from a historical standpoint, is going to reinvigorate the show.
I'm now interested to see how Crixus is getting out of this one, plus how Oenimeous plays in.
EDIT: This dude playing Spartacus is pretty good, I think, but he's far from Andy Whitfield.
I think they made a concious decision to not focus on Spartacus so much right off the bat to kind of let Liam ease into the role, but the lack of other strong characters right now is really hurting the show. I don't ever see Liam being as good as Andy but that is because Andy was born for that role.
Anyway, something needs to happen soon or I can see the show really losing some viewership.
Will be interesting to see where they go from here and what is going to happen with Cryxus. I agree it really needs a villain and as villains go it Asher is really hitting his stride, just not sure how long they will be able to ride that out.
Anybody still watching this? I LOVED the first season and 2nd season/prequal but I just watched the first episode of the true 2nd season. Thought it was ok but didn't blow me away like before. So what's everyones thoughts now that the season is almost over...
No spoilers please if you don't mind.
I'm still watching, but I just watched last week's tonight. This show used to be appointment television for me. Now? Meh.
I was hard on this season at first but it's starting to come around IMO. Problem is, this season's episodes have either been awful or really good. Not a lot of consistency.
I agree with Chris.
I'm looking forward to seeing how they end this season. The season finales for the last two seasons were awesome. I don't think Glaber is long for this world.
