    Gods of the Arena was the best 'filler' I have ever seen.

    I wanted to see more of Spartacus kicking ass not Crixus learning the arena

    ive never been a big fan of Crixus and a series based on him really wasnt my cup of tea

    Nifty. Looking forward to the return.

    I still think they should've started out with Spartacus taking a shield to the face, then when it heals, he looks different, since they can't exactly have him regenerate to explain the new actor.

    the new guy looks close enough to the original obviously alot less bulky and buff looking but there is a resemblance between the two

    but I will say this, he doesnt give me that "tough sumbitch you dont wanna mess with" vibe like the original actor always did, that could change after seeing him on the show though

    After being blown away by Blood and Sand, I was worried about being let down by Gods of the Arena...

    ...I was not.

    NEAT!!! I am excite.

    Albeit she looked like she coulda been a ghost (or something), I always thought that Xena (can't remember her name...Domina) wasn't dead.

    I thought we were getting this season earlier than January though. Kinda bummed about that.

    For realz...and from the clips I've seen on STARZ, it looks like we get Gannicus back in Vengeance. HOO-AH!!

    IF you have STARZ ON DEMAND, you can see the first episode NOW!! I watched it over the weekend...and I won't spoil it for anybody, but it was a pretty good episode.

    Honestly, didn't expect to like the new guy playing Spartacus, just loved Andy in the role so much, but Liam did a pretty good job, thankfully most of our fave gladiators are back as well as a few of the Romans..also, the series picks up where they left off pretty well..the slaves are out there causing a bit of trouble for the Romans. :thumb

    Eh, maybe it's because of the delay, but I didn't really feel anything for this episode (which I just got around to watching).

    I saw the first episode last week on the Audience channel on Direct TV. I thought it was good and the new actor did do a good job. At first I thought that this channel would show the whole season, but it turns out that it was just a special preview of the show and you have to order Starz to watch the rest on television.

    True they do offer that, which is fine if I'm on the road, I go to the Starz website all the time and get notices about Spartacus from them too...but I would much rather watch the series on my TV in HD, blah blah blah. :)

    Did anybody watch the premiere tonight? I thought it was fantastic. It achieved everything that I had loved about the first two seasons and then threw in some more of it. I'm certainly sad to see Andy not as Spartacus (RIP), but this actor seems to fit in just fine.

    Liam is doing okay in the role, so far, but Andy OWNED the role imho. But, I'm willing to give the guy a chance, it's only been 2 episodes so far...and focusing more on the Glaber and company than the slaves..wasn't surprised to see that Ashur returned and was as devious dog as ever.

    Damn Ashur, between what he's doing to Oenomaus and now Crixus...this guy needs to burn. I image both of them will suffer as they are both back in Capua....maybe this will be where Gannicus fits in, he'll come back and save his friend Oenomaus.
    Was happy they found Naevia, but why did they have another actress, I wonder? I liked the other woman during season 1...oh well.

    Not a bad episode, but not a great one either. So far episode 2 is the best of the trio.

    The next episode has been leaked.

    Lots of politicking in this episode.
