5.0 out of 5 stars Why not Blu-ray?, 13 April 2014
(SPOILER FREE)

THE SHOW

As for season 1, a must see... (It's incredible how I cannot find words to describe one of my favourite shows... whereas I always have a lot of things to say on bad ones... Maybe it's because this one is so great that words are really unnecessary!)

THE BOX

Nice slim transparent amaray box. It doesn't have a cardboard sleeve like season one, but when you open it you can notice pictures facing also the inside of the box, so the product doesn't look cheap at all at the end.
The only think i really hate about this product it's the fact that it's not a Blu-ray. The are lots of gorgeous sci fi scenes in this season, which are visually outstanding, and dvd quality definitely doesn't make justice. I'd pay everything to buy this season again on Blu-ray...
Season 1 was on blu ray and it was AMAZING in every possible way, VIDEO, SOUND, EXPERIENCE... It managed to give me thrills so many times... But season 2 dvd quality (which is not that good even for a dvd) makes the whole experience a lot less enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sci fi masterpiece. The box set is simple,durable but with a big design flaw, 17 Nov. 2013
THE SERIES (spoiler free) 5 stars

A must have. A masterpiece. Too bad that they had to rush everything in the last season due to the cancellation. It would have been an even better series if it had lasted six seasons as it was meant to be from the beginning.

THE BOX SET 3 stars

Simple. Durable. Also nothing special. A hard cardboard cover with 5 amaray cases inside. The amaray cases are different in style from each other, just like the original individual boxes that came out alone when the show was still aired. BEWARE: if you (or someone else) don't remember to put a hand underneath the box while you pick it up from the shelf, all the inside will fall to the ground immediately due to the holes at both the extremities.That is a big design flaw in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT, 5 Aug. 2013
(NO SPOILERS)

THE SHOW

No words to describe such a beautiful science fiction series. No hesitation buying it. A must see for every science fiction fan.

THE BOX

Beautiful solid amaray blue box with pictures facing also the inside of the box. The disc pictures are also well designed. A cardboard sleeve makes the whole even more nice to see.
Everything is perfect about this product, bot aesthetically and on a quality level.

1.0 out of 5 stars TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME, 29 May 2013
It's just horrible. I wasted 16 sterlin on this garbage (with the disadvantage of the fact that I payed in euros) and i literally FORCED myself watching other episodes other than the total boring, bad written, cgi ridiculous pilot. After five episodes I couldn't go on any further. The show is so horrible and definitely not enticing. I just hate it. No one is going to give my money back for this.
The cgi is just ridiculous. Everything looks too too fake. The story is bad written and the ideas are all but originals. I don't know how people even dare to compare this with Buffy or X files. This series could have gone better as a crime series, rather than trying to be something that it's not meant to. If you like masterpieces like Buffy or Angel or Xfiles (even Charmed is gold compared to this) you will certainly want to avoid this show.

2.0 out of 5 stars Quite boring. Nothing original, 18 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The show is boring and slow. Slow isn't bad as long as the show isn't also boring, and unfortunately, it is. Nothing original. All the ideas have already been experimented on several other shows or movies. It takes too much time to catch the viewer's attention (just a bit at the end of the season). I kind of forced myself to watch the entire season just to give reason to the money i spent buying this set. I had never seen the show before i bought this boxset, and i must say i'm not enticed of the idea of buying season two, nor watching it.

2.0 out of 5 stars NO SUBTITLES of any kind!, 4 Feb. 2013
I'm italian but I love to watch tv series in original languange. I bought this boxset since it was in blu ray, while in Italy it's only available on dvd. Well. I just put the disc on my blu ray reader looking forward to watching this sequel and I just couldn't believe there wasn't any kind of subtitles available. Why putting them in season 1 and God's of the Arena and not now?!
What about deaf people and hearing impaired also? I really don't understand why lowering a product quality like this. Not everyone knows English that good to understand every single word in the show, and so one would like to see one of his favourite show with subtitles also in order to enjoy it better, but it seems like it can't be possibile with Spartacus season 2, since there aren't even english subtitles.
Even though the box is very nice, the slipcase too and the pictures inside the amaray box that raise the overall product quality, i'll have to give only two stars since subs are quite important and necessary to me.
Hoping to see subtitles again on season three...

1.0 out of 5 stars If you like T1 and T2 you can't possibly like this, 7 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are one of those who felt chills watching the first two movies of the terminator saga... ( I don't even consider the third and the fourth one as part of the saga ) you can't possibily like this puerilely put together story...
I feel so angry watching so many incompetents directors ruining the saga in this way.
When i heard that this series was going not to consider the third and fourth movie, rewriting the story entirely from that moment on, i was very happy and hopeful... Well, now i'm not anymore. This series is even worse than T3 T4, soo much worse...
CGI looks fake many times ( not always but most of the times ). I have never, and repeat NEVER felt chills even for a second during this series.
The directors simply don't know how to handle everything and are not able to communicate emotions through the story. They are just able to copy something already seen and reproduce it much worse than before. Even the few puerile "original" ideas they come out with in the story ( i won't spoil anything don't worry ) are awfully put together and handled. There are so many bad things to say on this show I could spend a week writing on it. Few ideas... everything looks puerile, fake and forced.
English is not my first language so forgive me if I made some mistakes. But i felt forced to write something on this horrible show... It is definitely a waste of time and money ( even if i paid it just 10 sterlins on bluray ). I won't buy, neither watch the second season which is luckily the last too. I'm very disappointed. Terminator Sarah Connor Cronicles just doesn't exist for me. It ruins too much the story and twists completely the sense of the story. Yes, the directors are two biggotts and ruined the story even more putting their limited-bigot-bible-view of the story. This is just garbage. Two kids playing as directors ruining a masterpiece. Two incompetents...

By the way, the packaging is nothing special and the audio is not even bluray master audio quality but just a dolby digital 5.1 dvd quality.
