Even better than the first season with strong acting, a compelling mystery plot, and plenty of suspenseful moments. The only thing that drags this down a little is the addition of the alien subplot, which they never explain. This is genuinely creepier than the first season and more traditional horror than the psychological thrills of the first season. It's a nice change of pace. This is one of my favorite current television shows.
Andy's Whitfield's unexpected and saddening death left the makers no choice but to make a prequel until things got resolved and they did a solid job of keeping the series interesting. It's shorter than the first season, but has enough episodes that things move at a good pace and the action & story do not get stale. It's cool seeing some of the characters from the first season and how they started out. Gannicus is an intriguing new character to add to the series and worthy of top billing. Ultimately, this is more of the same, but retains the high quality storytelling and acting of the first season to make a compelling addition.
Things are starting to head south for this series. The story is starting to repeat itself and get boring, and while Liam McIntyre is a solid Spartacus, you can feel the difference between him and Andy Whitfield. He is sorely missed. Now that everyone has been freed and it has turned into more of a generic war story, things just are not as entertaining and racy as they once were. Hopefully the final season can end with a bang.
A completely over the top experience, but one with solid acting and a great story that kept me interested the whole season. The action can get a little repetitive because they overuse the slow motion CG, but it can also be pretty spectacular in parts as well. The dialogue can be a little vulgar at times, but it doesn't completely derail the experience. At times it is rather hilarious. This is just highly enjoyable camp.
A great start to a unique series, even if it gets convoluted and hard to follow by the middle. It's high enjoyable and the acting is simply fantastic. It's nice to have a good horror television series on that doesn't pull any punches. I'm looking forward to future seasons.
