-doctore – spartacus, blood & sand

Just last night I finished watching the season finale of Spartacus, Blood & Sand.  The violence and gore content is so high both jb and I had to watch with hands covering each other’s eyes through 10% of the season, but nonetheless, superb.  I would almost characterize it as 300 meets Gladiator…and it seems like the fight scenes have been directed by John Woo and Quentin Tarantino, although they haven’t. (slow motion and super violent..nothing like seeing a spear pass slowly through someone’s mouth out the back of their head, with all the gristle and brains exploding out the exit, ewwww!)

Highly recommended, I hope the prequel they are planning for January and the second season will come soon!
