    I just finished watching the first episode and I'm afraid this show died with Andy Whitfield. The new Spartacus kind of sucks.

    I'll most likely finish this season out because it's something my girlfriend and I can watch together, but I'm mostly just looking forward to the boobies.

    The first season was *so* good. The plot, the relationships, the fighting... the boobs. Man, once they started making dude fight in those shady pits I was hooked.

    Then a new season started and I had zero interest in it. Oh well. Atleast Lucy Lawless is still smoking hot.

    Blood and Sand was fantastic. Gods of the Arena was really good and I get why they wanted to do it to keep the series in viewers' minds while they were waiting to see how to handle Andy Whitfield's illness.

    I would have been perfectly satisfied had they stopped at Blood and Sand and just left it as a mini-series. I was skeptical about how well the show would work once they left the ludus and that was before wussy Spartacus.

    I have more complaints about the story in the first episode of Vengeance than just wussy Spartacus, but I don't want to post spoilers. Let me say it seems as though the writers didn't even know Blood and Sand existed.

    Andy Whitfield was awesome, but I think the show is going to miss Bataitus even more. He was such an awesome character.

    Yeah, I gotta say that the new spartacus doesn't look quite right. But that is just how it's going to be in most cases. If Whitfield had been the new spartacus, I'd be saying the same thing most likely.

    I'm amped about the new season so I hope it doesn't suck.

    One of the few shows I'll sit down to watch. This, The League... and that's pretty much it.

    I watched it the other night. I have to agree that the abscence of the House of Batiatus story line left a big void. I just wasn't as impressed with Vengeance.

    I was actually going to also say It's Always Sunny and How I Met Your Mother.

    But I don't actually watch the full seasons of those- just watch whenever I see random episodes on.
