AUSXIP Spartacus Forum Now Online

Welcome to the new Spartacus forum on AUSXIP Talking Xena. This space has been created to chat about the show, discuss the episodes, create art and just have a great time.

The AUSXIP Talking Xena moderators and I felt the need to have a special place for this new show because it will generate a lot of discussion and topics may get lost in the Lucy Chat area. It's been a long time since Lucy has been a regular on a tv show and we honour that with this forum.

I want to thank Tobias for designing this new section that gives it such a great feel and let's have fun!

With any new home, there is a few house rules and these are:

1. Please do not post screencaptures or images that show naughty bits (male or female) as this is an open forum where minors can read messages and it goes against AUSXIP and AUSXIP Talking Xena policy regarding Spartacus and nudity.

2. Banners are also included in that policy.

3. If you would like to discuss the episodes please use SPOILER in the topic header and some space in the message just to be on the safe side as a courtesy for those keeping spoiler free.

4. Artwork can be showcased here (be aware of rule #1) and they will also be showcased on AUSXIP Spartacus Blood and Sand Web Site

Other than those rules; please have alot of fun in chatting about Spartacus Blood and Sand. It promises to be a great show!

New Starz Show 'Spartacus' Faces Quite A Battle

New Starz show 'Spartacus' faces quite a battle
The Kansas City Star

Editor's note: TV critic Aaron Barnhart is in Pasadena, Calif., for the annual Television Critics Association fall tour.

When the cast of "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" took their seats on stage, the press in the hotel ballroom were as silent as a hapless gladiator whose head has just been separated from his shoulders.

It was a stark contrast to the bloodthirsty screams that greeted Lucy Lawless -- the once and forever "Xena: Warrior Princess" -- just a few days earlier at the fan-tastic Comic-Con International in San Diego. There, the onetime quiver-wielding, leather-skirt- wearing syndicated TV star and lesbian icon was greeted as a conquering heroine.

Here, not so much. Journalistic protocol at the twice-yearly TV critics' tours obliges us to keep our game faces on.
