    Definitely, but I'm a bit anxious to see how Liam McIntyre does in place of Andy...

    Also, if you have Directv, they're doing a week early showing of the season premiere tomorrow night (the 20th) on the Audience Channel (239).

    It still saddens me that Andy passed away. I loved the show with him in the lead, hopefully they were able to carry his legacy forward into the new season.

    Anyone know if the Netflix fracas with Encore is still ongoing? I'm hoping to be able to catch this on Netflix On Demand.

    No Clue but I saw on my Xbox360 last night you can get the show via Zune. Not sure about Netflix seems like Starz is not giving away one of their massive hits freely about anymore.

    Hmmm... apparently Whitfield gave this new guy his blessing before passing away, I guess we'll all see how well he does soon enough.

    Blood and Sand was one of the greatest shows ever put on tv, I thought. Definately had the best season finale of all time!!!!!

    Rewatching them on Starz now. Can't wait for the new one. But Andy will be missed. He really put humanity into the charactor. Hope the new guy is as good.

    God, I hope some one finally kills that blonde bit(h!!

    Yes can not wait for this. I actually got into this after it had shown on TV and went to buy it on DVD and was told then about Andy passing away so was a bit sad watching it when i knew. Was good to watch both seasons on DVD with no commercials etc?

    I watched it using Netflix too, but with the Starz contract coming to an end soon, I sincerely doubt that the new season will be added to the list. At the moment, only Blood and Sand is available via streaming anyway.

    Get em on Blu-Ray if you can. I purchased season 1 on Blu-Ray, and it's worth every penny. (And I originally watched all of season 1 on NetFlix.) The difference in quality is astounding. Totally awesome.

    Ah, see, I don't have a BR player yet, nor an HDTV, nor a receiver that can even do HDMI hookups. I'm in the process of having my media room built, but when that's done, the great upgrade shall begin. I'll probably still reflexively refer to BRDs as DVDs, though, for a few months after I upgrade. :)

    Hey, for anyone interested, as of today, Episode 1 of the new season is available to watch from Starz main website. Pretty cool since it won't air until the 27th.

    I just watched it - it was alright, not the same (or as great) as before though. I was amazed I think the most that there was hardly any nudity until 20 mins into the show.

    No spoilers here. But I miss Andy as Spartacus. The new guy's too GQ and baby face to fill these otherwise large shoes.

    Jupiters Co#K!!!

    I thought it was very good. And you said not much nudity.....this may have been the most nudity heavy episode of the whole series. It was different seeing someone else playing Spartacus. I think in time it will be less and less noticable as he makes it his own. I felt they picked up where they left off the best they could with a new actor. I was overall very pleased and excited for the return.

    ^Seriously?? There was only 1 scene with any significant nudity. Some of the 1st season episodes almost qualified as being soft prn.

    One scene, I am unsure what version you were watching. There is one scene where a chick mounts a guy with a strapon for god sake.

    The scene in the 'pleasure' house is the 'one significant one' that I'm referring too.

    Not really any worse that the early scenes in Blood and Sand that took place in the luduce.

    I finally got around to watching the new episode last night, and I loved it. At first I wasn't sure about the new guy, but by the end of the episode I was ok with him. He's no Whitfield, but I think he'll do fine as the new Sparticus.

    You know that strap-on would have been made of finely crafted ivory, or even marble. I wonder if I could start an interest thread in the Junkyard...heheheheh..I said Junk.

    Imagine being that actress years later, "Grandma, what did you do when you were an actress?" "Oh I was d**do w**re on an episode of Spartacus. If you're good we'll make some cocoa and watch it tonight." "YAY!!!"

    Huh? I don't follow, and I don't find it hilarious.

    You realize the reason there's a new actor playing Spartacus is because Andy Whitfield (the original Spartacus) died of lymphoma, right?

    Read my edit (posted before you did) and it's funny because of the whole, "I'm Spartacus", "No, I'm Spartacus" thing from the movie.

    It's a movie history joke. When the Romans captures Spartacus and his army, they demanded to know which one was Spartacus. Since they didn't exactly have pictures of him, they had to threaten to kill all of them until Spartacus fessed up. So Spartacus stands up and says 'I am Spartacus' but then others in his army stand up saying 'I am Spartacus' until they all pretty much do.

    Yea watched the show on the 21st, I still like the show but its extremely hard to watch it without Andy playing the role (RIP) He played that role amazingly well, and the new guy, at times has a slight resemblence, but his voice is A LOT different, and I know no ones voice is the same as someone elses, but Andy had a voice perfect for that role. The show will still be good with out, but man I miss Andy.
    ***SPOLIER ALERT****
    And wow Lucretia literally lost her mind, that was insane how gone her brain is, but i guess after going through a tragedy like she went through it would cause that. But clearly she is going to snap out of it, seemed like she started to once she saw Crixus.
    And really the same girl isn't playing Navea?

    I just want to say, as a Xena/Lucy Lawless fan most of my life, in this first episode of Vengeance , it is one of the best scenes I have ever scene Lucy act in! As Lucretia she makes you truly feel for her, though she is a villian! Lucy absolutly amazes me always!

    and no you cant replace andy, but you also cant compare him to Liam, they are different, they brought different qualities to Spartacus. You have to forget Andy's Spartacus when watching the new one. honestly i wasnt fazed by andy being gone at all in this first ep! not to discredit andy, because he was BEYOND amazing, but i feel that the story of Lucretia, Glaber and Illythia are sooo strong this season that it wont matter about spartacus!

    yea Lucretia's part in this season to gain "power" should be quite amazing. and she has definitely played her roll very well. Her and Quintus played their roles amazingly in blood and sand and gods of the arena, and can only expect good things from Lucy this season. In all actuality, the entire cast plays their roles very well. Should be an epic season, just sad now that i've seen the first episode early that I have to wait until next weekend to see episode 2

    No, I refuse to watch this on a 22 inch computer monitor. Must watch it on the 46 inch tv with the surround sound, in the dark, with my beer and popcorn. Any thing else is a waste.

    If you have Comcast (or Xfinity - whatever the heck it's called now) you can watch it OnDemand. I'm guessing it'd be the same for most other providers too.

    Loved it!:thumbsup
    The show still surprises me with the creative ways they brutally kill or torture people.:lol

    Wow. I'm happy to see so many fans of the show. So far after I have yet to convert a single one of my friends into loyal followers. With BSG they all saw the light so quickly...

    ^ Every time I find out that someone that I know is watching/has watched it, I get all excited again!! A buddy of mine who dismissed my suggestion to watch it a year ago just started Blood and Sand - he finished the entire season in less than a week!!! LOL!!
