Epic, 7 Sep 2013
Having just watched the 39th (I think) and final episode of Spartacus, I have been inspired to write my first review.
When this show gets you it really gets you. This is escapism on an epic scale, but with a real message of liberty, equality and brotherhood. I will not spoil the end, but there was a tear in my eye at the end of the last episode, 'Victory'. The gratuitous violence, sex and explitive-laden language, which might shock and to begin with are a 'distraction' are part of the show's unique charm and style. The cast are superb and the respectful transition from Andy Whitfiled to Liam MacItyre as Spartacus adds to the telling of the tale.
Buy it. Enjoy it. I miss it already. Back to episode 1?
