I think every show and movie that is set in this time period should follow this style of language we see on Spartacus. It's really interesting.



if you have not seen Rome is highly recommend it

Since the beginning this show has remained true to Plutarch's account of the third servile war. The only exception is Julius Caesar. I don't understand why they threw him in the mix? Its a bit ridiculous that he would be involved at all.


I just read up on the third servile war, I don't like where this show is headed

hopefully they go another route and spartacus continues his dominance.

Last episode was the best of the season in my opinion. This season is good but hasn't been as enjoyable for me because I know they are going down this season. I'm not going to like it when Spartacus and Gannicus go.

Looking forward to next episode. Ceasar got lucky that episode. Sucks knowing that he can't die.

Just think of it as the Titanic. You know how it ends but you watch it anyway. And you get foursomes.

Very good episode.

So it's the beginning of the end for Spartacus: War of the Damned. I'll be sad as frick next week but I'm still excited to see how this is going to shake out. Will Spartacus and the rebels totally frick things up for Crassus and the Romans and then concede defeat and ride off into the sunset with a select few to live the rest of their lives out in some undisclosed location? Or are they all going to die an honorable death in battle?

Tiberius is a grade A piece of shite. I wish Crassus knew what his son is turning into, he's a coward, he's self-entitled, coniving, a bully and a rapist. I wouldn't want that for a son. Caesar is a better man than he is.

The poster that said Laeta was going to help the romans got that right. If Spartacus and a few others ride off into the sunset, I think she's Spartacus's new woman.

The executions by the Roman soldiers where they pulled that guy apart, that was hard to watch. Again, it reminds you of how barbaric this time period was. Thank god this shite is illegal, unethical, and immoral amongst the men and women of the United States Military.

Good episode and I can't wait for next week.

Technically he doesn't have to die. He was never found. Only assumed he was killed.

Oh and I has a sad about Donar's death.

ETA: frick Heracleo, glad the traitor got what he deserved.

At least he went out on his own terms. Stealing the glory of the death blow from Caesar. Though Crassus did improvise well. (Yeah, it was in the script so not really improvised, but you know what I mean)

The fight scene w Caesar at his party. That was straight out of Dune. Feyd is facing a gladiator who was supposed to be drugged but Thufir Hawat arranged for him not to be drugged in secret. Nearly killed Feyd. At the end of the fight, while dying of poison, the gladiator overcomes the paralysis and kills himself with his sword.

I think they are going to leave Spartacus fate unresolved. And that my friends will leave the Romans pissed. Moral victory for the gladiators!

I was glad to see that as well.

I would've done the same thing. Donar's line of thinking probably went like this, "They may have taken my freedom but frick them if they want to take my life as well. I won't give them that satisfaction."

You know me as tucotiger. But I'm back to my regular name now. I agree, don't give'em the satisfaction, especially a cock sucker like Caesar. And to those sayin that Caesar could have very well been involved in this affair, that's absurd. It would have been proclaimed in his history accounts somewhere, this is all just Hollywood icing.

He was probably involved. Lucullus and Pompey all had legions in the field. They needed every man they had. He just wasn't prominent in the war is all. Probably a legate or tribune that didn't do much.

He was a winner of the Civic Crown. They also had the provinces of Greece and N Africa with their own legions. They needed all the troops they could get. What do you think? He was still at the legate/tribune level. Pompey was only a general because he had his father's troops when he was 20. They had quite a few legions in Spain putting down the Sertorious revolt. Then there was Lucullus. Caesar would have been fighting somewhere, probably in Italy.
