Spartacus is still great but his new enemy Crassus is just FANTASTIC! Here is a guy who doesn't have his head up his ass like the other Romans. This guy is smart, humble and most importantly a match for spartacus in both strategy and combat. The new season certainly stepped things up, not only with the bigger budget but with how fucken epic the first battle was. I think that with this new season Spartacus can finnaly compete with Game of Thrones and the walking dead. Ashar will always be missed though he was a great villain in the 2nd season.

yup its moving quite fast at this rate i don't see the story (Spartacus) lasting past season 5 but im sure if they do a good job with the characters ceasar, pompey and crassus they can easily do a spin off carrying on the story for an even better show. So far I like Crassus would love to see him have his own show and his own story after the Rebellion is crushed.

Like how they did with gods of the arena prequel they can do a sequel or maybe even a prequel with Crassus who's story is little known.

Historically speaking they are running out lol Crassus is the one who ultimately defeats Spartacus and i just can't see the directors having enough material regarding the rebellion to last more than 2 seasons. The end for this season will probably involve Crixus splitting up from spartacu's band and being defeated and next season spartacus struggling to keep his people alive and ultimately being defeated. This is a good time frame i think.

This is going to be their last season and I heard that they're going to end it on a high note (you know, instead of Spartacus' execution). I hope I'm wrong though.

First episode was great and I agree completely with the description of Crassus. His son reminds me of Glabber and Batiatus ("He's just a slave daddy, he's an idiot.") though Crassus is very intelligent and physically capable.

Should be a great season.

Its always good when shows end in a high note leaves room for prequel and sequels, as far as this being the last season they'd have to rush things quite fast I don't see Spartacus and Cricux's relationship deteriorating anytime soon.

Ive been watching the show since the beginning and I have to say, to me its just not as good as it used to be. First off no one could replace Andy (he was a monster) Liam does a decent job, but I still dont like him as much in the role. (Likely bc Andy did it first)
Im not that huge a fan of the "300 stlye slow-mo over the top blood scenes" but Ive always accepted them as part of the entertainment that Stars is trying to produce. However in this season (well the 1st episode) it seemed like there was way too much of it!

My friends and I have always refereed to the show as Spartacus: Blood and Boobs (in homage to the 1st season title Blood and Sand) and we knew that blood and boobs is what we were going to get, however I find myself wanting more of the complex character development and backstabbing.

I dont know, just bored of it I guess. I will likely still watch it until the end, but its not as good as The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones (as mentioned by someone else in the thread)

i think there doing well,going to be a lot harder to keep character development going the same way as the scope gets so much larger ,and i agree,id say walking dead is the best thing on telly,and if you have read the game of thrones books,that will be good for another season,then it will lose its way,George Martin next needs to tie a lot of stuff up pretty quickly when we finely get the next book
