The inspiration behind this series is the Thracian Gladiator Spartacus, who led a slave uprising against the Roman Republic. The Thracians had been persuaded by Claudius Glaber to serve as auxiliaries in the Roman legions in a campaign against the Getae, who had often plundered Thracian lands. However after Glaber reneges on the deal and switches his attentions from the Getae to attack Mithridates in Asia Minor, the Thracians feel betrayed and mutiny. Captured by Glaber, Spartacus is condemned to death as a Gladiator, whilst his wife Sura is condemned to slavery. Spartacus, however, proves to be a formidable gladiator, and defeats the four gladiators tasked with executing him. He becomes a favorite of the crowd, leading Senator Albinius to commute his death sentence to a life of slavery. Spartacus is purchased by Batiatus for gladiator training, who promises to help him find Sura if he proves himself in training. As the series develops, the story follows the betrayals and machinations... Written by WellardRockard

Did You Know?


Wentworth Miller was announced to be replacing Andy Whitefield as the title character and had express interest in taking on the role. But, Liam McIntyre was cast. See more »


The characters frequently address Batiatus, among others, using the form of address "Dominus" (Lord). In Latin, the proper form of this word used when addressing an individual would be in the vocative case, and should instead be "Domine." See more »


Marcus Crassus: [talking about the reasons why they are fighting] As mine
Marcus Crassus: are so moved toward the memory of my son. As yours toward wife no longer...
Spartacus: Do not think to place your loss on equal footing! Your son took up arms for the republic - the same one that saw my innocent wife torn from grasp, condemned to slavery and death.
Marcus Crassus: And now you would lead thousands to join her in futile attempt?
Spartacus: Whatever happens to my people, it happens because *we* choose for it. *We* decide our fates; not you, not the Romans...

A Bloody Good Time !
22 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched the pilot episode tonight on the Starz website. I don't know much about the original story of Spartacus, but the action and blood flows like the waters of Niagra Falls. Beautiful woman with very tasteful sex. Almost like something you would see in Playboy magazine. I am excited to watch the next episode to say the least. From what i have seen so far this is a man's man show. My only complaint i have at this time is some scenes the blood looks to fake. I just might have to rent the old movie now. So i can compare the two. I hope the show can keep up the pace!

9 out of 10 for me at this point!
