  • Spartacus T&A err I mean Blood and Sand

    Just watched this one tonight.

    Ok I like the 300 Spartans looking gore enough to not mind it.

    But good grief was Rome really that casual about nudity?

    And they sure weren't trying to hide anything. The Legate's wife just strips naked, and you get to see the whole deal, even her real hair colour. And there's two actual sex scenes, not hinted at sex, oh they are most assuredly going at it.

    During the fight scene near the end, and I figure 1/3 of the females in the audience were having one long continuous wardrobe malfunction

    I think this opening show set a new record for most gratuitous sum of overt sex and sexuality in a TV show that wasn't an actual porn video. It wasn't a porn right?

    Downloaded all the available 9 shows, I hope they scale back a bit of the porn, good grief it's a bit over done.

    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
    I didn't for a long time either.

    Wasn't the Rome series much of the same?
    Are we there yet?

      not watched yet but guys at work have lots of sex and 300 style battle scenes suppose it will be popular with the male audience

        Not Like 'Rome' At All.

        I watched both 'Rome' series when they originally aired. While 'Blood and Sand' is nothing like it, in 'Rome' the characters actually wore clothes.

        I've only seen three different 15-minute segments of B&S, and I think it's the gayest show ever made. If it wasn't for the scene of Lucy Lawless (Xena) naked, it would be on OutTv.

        Watch it a while and see if you don't agree.

        So long as men worship the Caesars and Napoleons, Caesars and Napoleons will duly rise and make them miserable.

          I've watched 9 shows, and I suspect you have the wrong dictionary definition of 'gay' or, are you secretly a 13 year old?

          EVERY episode seems to have a sex scene, and it's male female sex. Last I checked that's termed hetero.

          Yes there's some homo action, it's the Roman Empire kiddies, they liked screwing boys too.

          Something to be said about a show though, when they can combine scenes of great bloody violence with crowds of women madly shaking their hooters to the gladiators like they were at Woodstock.

          I laughed to see it rated MA for Mature Audience. Gee ya figure
          If they rate a show as mature because someone swears in it a couple of times, I think then they should rate Spartacus X Rated.
          I mean, there's nude scenes aplenty, lots of furry ***** (I hate shaved women), and the ladies are given there moments to oogle some incredible beefcake WITH gear visible. Hey the wife was happy to hear that It's not often, but they are not afraid to air it.

          But gay? man that is such a grade school idiotic put down as not really worthy of this forum. Are you sure you are old enough to be in here

          The last show aired so far I think is 09 and man talk about the ultimate cat fight scene. And yes, there is a fatality. The woman goes mental.

          I think the blood is a bit over played. Totally 300 style. But no more than any popular video games.

            Personally I just thought it was dumb. Like 300, Beowulf, and Pathfinder it's all visuals and little substance - or historical accuracy. I suppose it might have been interesting if the bar hadn't been set with the Kirk Douglas version but good luck outdoing that in Hollywood today. Can't beat the classics.

            I took issue with the swearing. I'm not one of those easily offended types but when every other word out of your mouth is an f-bomb it doesn't exactly demonstrate a high level of scriptwriting creativity. What did they think this was, an '80s action film?

            A new life awaits you in the off world colonies; the chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure!

              I have to admit, I took issue with the clear violation of period accurate foul language. it bothers the ears to hear cursing that is so obviously modern.

              And the F bomb was only outdone by inclusion of the male appendage in every comment.

              I had no complaint with the visuals. I mean it's so 300, but who cares, it's a TV drama not a documentary.

              I concur about the Kirk comparison too. I keep waiting to see it approach the same. The show only seems to make a point of it being ABOUT Spartacus on the 7th show. Everything before felt like preliminary.

                I thought Rome was infinitely better.
