Why play with a story that is already interesting?
3 August 2018 | by nickyggSee all my reviews

I have not studied much that part of the imperial history of Rome which was covered in season one, so to me the series seemed fairly good. I went through it in one night. Unfortunately, season two covers the republican period that I know well, and I am shocked. The story of the Spartacus uprising was totally vandalized and I don't understand why. It was definitely not for brevity. It was definitely not for drama - the actual events have a lot more of it. Perhaps, it was done to keep the focus on the main characters. But I think this is a huge price to pay. I don't care if the fighting is not too realistic, but if the actual real and interesting story is brutalized, I have to object. If nothing in the series is real, why give the characters historic names? Just come up with a fictional story set in the period.
