Excerpt: What a rollercoaster for the brains (and brawn) behind Spartacus . Their first season, Spartacus: Blood and Sand was a modest success and earned a devoted cult following. Sadly, breakout star Andy Whitfield was diagnosed with cancer, and tragically succumbed to the disease. Now the show is back, featuring a new lead, a clear point of termination (Season Three will be its last), and apparently an expanded "plastic schlong" budget.
Excerpt: When it comes to the hit Starz television series Spartacus , Why So Blu is all over it. Many have come around to appreciating the stylish and blood-soaked action/drama series over the years, as they learned that there was much more to it, beyond the sex and violence, which includes the intriguing story and character arcs, but Why So Blu was among those who cherished the series from the beginning. Now we have the latest season’s release on Blu-ray.
Conclusion: Ich muss vorweg nehmen, dass ich ein Fan der Serie bin und bereits sämtliche Episoden der finalen Staffel 'War of the Damned' gesehen habe. Die hier besprochene zweite Staffel, deren audiovisuelle Qualität sowie dessen enthaltenes Bonusmaterial sind zwar sehr gelungen, trotzdem ist Vengeance meiner Meinung nach die schwächste und langatmigste Season.
