Gaius Claudius Glaber is dead. The rebellion has swelled to thousands of freed slaves, and Spartacus, alongside his generals Crixus, Gannicus and Agron, prepares for war with Rome. The Roman Senate turns to Marcus Crassus, a wealthy, strategic politician, for aid. With a young Julius Caesar as an ally, Crassus must crush the rebellion. The epic conclusion of a legendary journey, "Spartacus: War of the Damned" unleashes a battle unlike anything ever seen before.

So, Spartacus nears its ultimate conclusion. We are but days away from the very last episode of what has been - for my money at least - the best of all four series of Spartacus.

The first we saw of Spartacus was the long-haired Thracian who became Capua's greatest champion. Andy Whitfield was perfect for the role; the kind-faced, big-hearted man who was full of such bubbling rage come the end of the series. There was sex, violence, a little more violence, plenty of political intrigue, more sex, more violence, some wonderfully-created characters and most importantly of all, a killer script.

When Whitfield's health declined, a prequel series aired, starring Dustin Clare as Gannicus; the greatest champion that the ludus of Batiatus had possibly ever produced earning his freedom - and title as a "God" amongst gladiators - on the sands of the new arena.

Both seasons were quite frankly magnificent. The casting was superb, and the writing was even better. But the sad news came that Andy Whitfield had tragically passed away, and there was the need for a new Spartacus to be cast. Enter the relatively unknown Liam McIntyre; at first a little wooden, but he soon grew into the role. He portrayed a different Spartacus; a man so utterly hell-bent on spilling Roman blood that he seemed unrecognisable from Whitfield's earlier portrayal.

And so McIntyre lead an ensemble cast in the third series; Vengeance. It was Blood and Sand on a wider scale - there was even more violence, even more sex, and this time we saw countless battle-royales between Spartacus' rebels and the hired mercenary gladiators under the scheming Syrian Ashur.

I thought it was a bit strange that Anchor Bay decided to release this series on Blu Ray a mere two weeks after the show finished airing.This was not the case with the other seasons as I recall they all came out in the Autumn.
My reservations were confirmed this release has no extra or subtitles.
I would imagine many customers expect a decent amount of extra content to justify a Blu Ray purchase not to mention the inclusion of subtitles for the hearing impaired.To be quite honest it is a scandal in this day and age to leave out such a basic feature.
Anyhow I wanted to make people aware before they purchase this that the US release will have deleted scenes,interviews and audio commentary.Although there is no release date yet I would suggest sometime before or during September as Vengeance was.
Ultimately this is a lazy cash grab by Anchor who couldn't even wait to include the special features before releasing this.

This is the final disc of a four sets. Gods of the Arena, Blood and Sand & Revenge. It is the best Spartacus series and TV series we have ever watched. It is gritty and lots of blood but well researched and presented. Will watch this over and over again, no problem.

I am sure this is every bit as good as the previous seasons of "Spartacus". However, I am fairly deaf and need subtitles. It never even occurred to me that anyone in this day and age would release a blu-ray set with absolutely NO SUBTITLES! I feel robbed because, no matter how brilliant the visuals (and they are) it's 50% wasted on me when I can't make out anything that anyone is saying.

Calix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beakerWar of the Damned the final episode in a great series does not disappoint, plenty of sex and extreme violence, not for the feint hearted. From the historical point of view, quite well researched with some artistic license.
The plot fast paced compelling and exciting throughout, high production values and great cinematography. The acting overall not bad, with the main protagonist McIntyre having had a hard time taking over the roll from Andy Whitfield at such a critical juncture, however in War of the Dammed he proved to be equal to the task. The only issue I have with the DVD, is the lack of extras. All in all a fitting finale to a great series. Highly recommended.
THE PERFECT COMPANION TO THIS EXCELLENT SERIES, IS THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKER.Calix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

Shame its the last one but I think this is the best one by far. Very good story like the previous ones. If you liked the others this is defiantly worth getting

We brought this to complete our collection of the Spartacus series ... its amazing. Well worth the money. They have dispensed with some of the more annoying effects used in the first season (the slow mo camera as he runs off to war?!?) and there is (unfortunately) less of the "gladiator-ey" soundtracked fight wins (even when they kick roman butt) but all in all money well spent.

Spartacus is a real great show, from Robert Tapert!
The best Spartacus season is season 1 with the first Spartacus Actor.
Every other Seasons are ok, i like it anyway
