I have mixed feelings on this. I hate the way some of them died.
Just finished watching the last 2 episodes tonight and first let me say
I agree with you on the mixed feelings. I was surprised they didn't leave Spartacus more open-ended. But I am ok with him being shown dead and others having made it because of him. However, they fricked up with killing Gannicus. No reason for him to go and especially that bitch way from Caesar.
How is it that Crassux and Caesar are on level ground with gladiators? That was bull shite and annoyed me a bit. I know this wasn't held to perfect history, but it takes away respect from how bad arse Spartacus and Gannicus were as gladiators.
Overall, this show was an amazing ride and I am sad it's over. I could totally see a spinoff with Caesar, but he was such a punk bitch that I'm not sure I would watch it. Maybe if there is one, it involves Agron instead?
I look forward to watching this series all over again down the line.
