Brand new and great!
12 November 2016 | by NSweetRockSee all my reviews

For anyone loving the Spartacus series on Starz or any series, movies about Roman days and history, you will like this series. It actually has several actors from the Spartacus series. Commodus is played by Aaron Jakubenko who was Sabinus in Spartacus War of the Damned. Marcus Aureliys is played by John Bach who was Magistrate Calavius in Spartacus Blood and Sand. Segovax was played by Mark Edward who is Narcissus in this series. Also Tyronne Bell who was the trainer for the actors in Spartacus is a Gladiator in the opening of this series. I've just started this series and I am up to Episode 5. Sean Bean narrating is fabulous. It's grabbed a hold of me. Loving it so far. I hope more info will be released about this show. More reviews will come in. I know a lot of my Sparty buddies have jumped on the watch board of this show! Enjoy!
