    I wanted to get into it. I turned it off after 15 minutes into the first episode. What a low-grade, low-budget, badly-acted shit show.

    Horrible take. It's good. The actor from the first season was better than his replacement after he died, however.

    It's a slow build... The best epsiode is S1E05 - Shadow Games ... Theokoles ( The Shadow of Death )... It's also where Spartacus becomes " the bringer of rain "

    I can't decide if I'm done shitting in 15 minutes, yet within that same time frame you can give your thumbs up or thumbs down on a critically-acclaimed series.

    This.

    The first season and its prequel are actually great TV.

    Then the guy died and it got waaaaaay gay and the new dude sucked.
