If 300 was an hour long show that aired on Friday nights it would the Spartacus show on STARZ. The show is the very definition of testosterone, as in it's full of people being killed and sex...lots and lots of sex.
The show started off with "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" but the main actor developed cancer, so they made this prequel "gods of the arena" to bide time for the cancer to go into remission, unfortunately that wasn't the case so they'll now have to find a new actor to play the title role.
God of the arena just finished it's season and I wish I had started reviewing shows so I could go into the details of the show that made it so great without giving away spoilers but what I can do is this
For all you first time viewers out there this means you can view the first 2 seasons in chronological order which is kinda neat.
It's main draw is it's aggression but really the show has much better writing than you'd think it should. Most characters are well thought out, given conflicts and some redeeming qualities. the finale to both seasons have left me in awe.
Also if you wanna have some fun with this show you can turn it into a drinking game. Take a drink every time you hear "cock" "ass" and take a shot if you hear the first 2 words used in the same sentence. I doubt you'll remember the night.
