Spartacus Play School Version Legends Reviewed

Season 1 Episode 3 Legends
(aka Spartacus: Play School Version)

Reviewed by MaryD

I'm the first one to admit I have railed against those who just want to see this show for the sex, the violence and the nudity and have thought that you could remove these elements and it would still be a great show but seriously, all those elements give the show it's soul ontop of the great writing, the characters, the acting and the plot! You can't remove one aspect without affecting the other. It's just not possible. Spartacus: Play School is what you get.

Spartacus Season Review The Boston Globe 29 August 2010


The Boston Globe - 29 August 2010 - With “Centurion’’ slashing its way into select cinemas nationwide, now is as good a time as any to revisit some movies and TV shows set in ancient Rome and examine the recently energized, post-“Gladiator’’ wave.


A Post-it-sized pitch (“Spartacus done like ‘300’ ’’) sold this cheerfully over-the-top, fictionalized reimagining of the Spartacus legend. As the rebel hero (a soldier turned gladiator in this version), Welsh-born Andy Whitfield has a Clint Eastwood squint, a slow-burning fuse, and a bad bargain with his hated owner, Batiatus (John Hannah). When he isn’t swearing a blue streak, Batiatus promises Spartacus a chance to be reunited with his wife, who also has been enslaved. The producers — including Sam Raimi — break new ground by focusing on how the anxious, striving middle class (Batiatus and his adoring, scheming wife, played by Lucy Lawless) lose sleep over debts, social status, and fertility issues, yet are thoughtlessly cruel to their slaves. And those slaves aren’t the faceless, nameless background players of previous epics; they’re the resentful, beaten-down, terrorized majority who finally realize that “the dream that was Rome’’ doesn’t include them. (Season 1 will be available on DVD and Blu-ray Sept. 21. A six-part prequel is expected to air in January.)

Spartacus in New Zealand TONIGHT!

ImageAlrighty kiwis it's your turn to get Spartacus and I believe (according to Sky) that you are all getting the unedited version. I wonder if Australia is the only one with the edited version.


There is now an official NZ Spartacus site, much more snazzy than the Aussie version which is rather spartan.

Ep: 1.01
The Red Serpent
A Thracian warrior, enlisted by the Romans to fight, has his destiny seized by an act of rebellious violence. As punishment, he faces death by being forced to battle in the gladitorial arena.

Are Obsessive Fans Ruining the Internet?

ImageBrent Hartinger from recently interviewed me as part of an article about Fans and fandom. The article is called Are Obsessive Fans Ruining the Internet?

It's a fascinating look at how fans can cross the line between being a fan and being a fanatic. This issue has been getting progressively worse and some sites won't cover certain shows because of the caustic response from fans of that show.

I truly believe that fandom in general can do amazing things but there are those who cross that line. Have a read of Brent's article which is very well written (and not because he interviewed me as part of the article!)

NZ Herald - Blood, Sweat and Sex 19 August 2010

nzheraldNZ Herald 19 August 2010 - Blood, sweat and sex

Pick of the week SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND When: Sunday, 9.30pm Where: The Box What: Action on the bed and battlefield

Even before he gets his heroic nickname in the first episode of this much talked about New Zealand-filmed TV series, Spartacus shows his form both in bed and on the battlefield. He sure is a lover, a winner, and a fighter.

HEAVY-GOING: Wedged between the blood and guts of the battlefield are love scenes galore.

Based on the life of the Thracian warrior, slave, gladiator and revolutionary from the 1st century BC,

Blood and Sand, starts as Spartacus and his fellow Thracian fighters align with Rome to help protect their homelands. But when ruthless and obnoxious Roman army leader Gaius Claudius Glaber (Craig Parker) changes his battle plans, leaving Thracian villages vulnerable, Spartacus leads a rebellion and deserts the Roman army to return to his village and wife Sura.

But after a night of hot and heavy lovemaking Glaber and his cronies capture them and separate the pair. And so Spartacus’ fight for survival, and his desperate search for Sura, begins.

Welsh actor Andy Whitfield stars as Spartacus, who, while powerful, rebellious and charismatic, also looks a little bit of a batamweight beside some of the other beefier galdiators.

Shot in glamorous Mt Wellington using green-screen and CGI technology, it is visually similar to the graphic novel style of Zack Snyder’s 2006 film 300. So there’s lots of slow-motion whiplash, sprays of blood, gaping wounds and a mood that blends hyper-realism and epic fantasy.
As well as the much-publicised naughty bits and full frontal male and female nudity, there’s plenty of colourful language (had the ‘‘c’’ word even been invented back in the 1st century BC?).

Filming of a follow up series — prequel Spartacus: Gods of the Arena— was initially delayed as Whitfield was diagnosed with cancer but he has since been given a clean bill of health and production of the second season is under way.

The executive producers include Sam Raimi ( Spider-Man) and Rob Tapert (the creator of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena), the latter of whom happens to be married to Lucy Lawless who plays Lucretia (the wife of Batiatus (John Hannah) who owns a troop of gladiators). Lawless says Tappert told her: ‘‘Look, there is this role that might be right for you. But there is some nudity.’’ Told it was not gratuitous, Lawless agreed, saying: ‘‘I’m there.’’ She sure is, you can’t miss the 41-year-old who admits to not being used to ‘‘getting my kit off in front of all those people — and pretending to like it’’.

Lawless wanted to do the show because it heralds a new kind of television, bringing in the technology and scale of modern cinema, but on a budget and schedule that works for TV.

Spartacus Blood and Sand The Aussie PG Version Review

Okay the premiere of Spartacus Blood and Sand was on GO! last night. For Aussie fans who were expecting the same as the US fans, well you didn't get it. Andy did say a few months ago that Australia was getting the PG version and that is what we got.

What we got was the majorly edited version. Since it was eight months ago that I saw episode 1, I went back and compared it. The most obvious editing has been the nudity.

Channel 9 GO! Promotes Spartacus

I love the fact that channel 9 is going all out to promote Sparty! Here's the latest Official blog posting

ImageAnd finally at 9:30pm it’s the big one. Spartacus: Blood and Sand. You’ve probably already heard us harp on about this one because, frankly, we can't wait! We get to follow the plight of legendary Roman gladiator Spartacus as he fights to regain his family and Freedom. Sex. Blood. Gore. Passion. Effects to die to for (and there is quite a bit of that that goes on). A cast made of up hotness after hotness (including sexy Australian actor Andy Whitfield and equally sexy Lucy Lawless). I'm talking a feast for the eyes from every possible angle (in fact, it feels like you’re watching a big screen epic like Gladiator or Alexander, except that you get to watch it every week, and with a lot more of that sex, blood, gore and passion we were talking about).

Oh Wednesday, you never looked so good. Epic, right? Hope you remembered that warning…

Spartacus Set To Become New Flagship Show for GO!

ImageSpartacus: Blood and Sand is set to become the new flagship show for GO! when it has its Australian premiere tomorrow night.

The US cable series, featuring Australian Andy Whitfield as the leader of the Roman slaves, has been a hit series for the Starz Network and attracted buzz for its buff gladiators, gory violence, CGI special effects and sex scenes. It is the kind of alternative viewing that Nine’s Director of Acquisitions and HD Channel, Les Sampson, calls a perfect fit.

“It’s got action, sex appeal, it’s the brand of the channel. It’s a mega series,” he told TV Tonight.

“And the great thing is there’s an Australian in the lead, and another in Season Two and it’s shot in our region as well. So it’s got some good breeding!”

The REAL Andy Whitfield NOT on Facebook

Following up yesterday's post about Andy Whitfield having a Facebook account.

Alas this is not correct. It's a fake. I have confirmed it through official sources that Andy does not have an official Facebook account.

This is quite upsetting to many people who believed it (including me) and quite frankly annoying. I do wish some "fans" would stop trying to dupe other fans.

Andy Whitfield does NOT have an official Facebook page as of this time. You never know what might happen in the future.

He also does not have a twitter account.


In case there were any doubts whatsoever that Andy Whitfield on FB is Fake Andy...(and many thanks to Roland for the very quick and ingenious way he discovered Fake Andy's real location)

The fight of his life

Andy Whitfield has battled cancer to resume combat as Spartacus, writes Colin Vickery

ANDY Whitfield has just endured the most shocking time of his life. In March, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It couldn’t have come at a worse time. The 35-year-old actor, who moved from the UK to Australia 10 years ago, had just completed the biggest role of his career. Whitfield, who starred in local shows including McLeod’s Daughters, Packed to the Rafters, The Strip and Out of the Blue, had been picked for the title role of major US TV show, Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

Whitfield had just finished shooting the first series of the Gladiator-style historical drama when tragedy struck. Production on the second series of Spartacus was postponed while Whitfield received treatment.
‘‘I’m receiving excellent care, and am feeling strong, positive and determined with an army of support behind me,’’ Whitfield said at the time.

Four months later, he’s cancer-free and back in training. Series two of Spartacus will start filming in October. The cancer scare has had a major impact on Whitfield’s life: now he doesn’t take a single day for granted.
‘‘I was pretty tired at the end of filming the first series, but I think that was only to be expected,’’ Whitfield says.
‘‘I’d put my sore back and other ailments down to nine months of pretty intense physical activity.
‘‘To find out that it was cancer was very strange timing after having spent so many years trying to crack it (acting in the US) and to get this hit show and then for that to happen.

‘‘So many great things have come out of it. I went through a process of stripping back. Everything was taken away, almost. I embraced it and had a profound time which I’ll never forget. It changed me forever.
‘‘When you have something as serious as that (cancer) all the other stuff which you thought was important or worth worrying about just isn’t.
‘‘There’s a level of fearlessness that I’m enjoying and I’m really interested in seeing how that translates into work.
‘‘Acting essentially is taking risks every day — putting yourself out there — and some things can go wrong. That was easy to worry about before but now it’s like — what’s the worst that can happen?’’

Spartacus: Blood and Sand has been shot in the style of recent hit historical action film, 300. The series, which was shot in New Zealand, is incredibly violent and bloody. There’s also a high level of sex and nudity, but Whitfield says it’s the scripts, rather than the spectacle, that made him want to sign on. Whitfield plays Spartacus, a Thracian soldier who, as punishment for defying Roman commander Legatus Glaber (Craig Parker), is sentenced to fight in the gladiatorial arena. Spartacus is then sent into slavery but lives on the promise of one day being reunited with his wife Sura (Erin Cummings).

‘‘This is my dream role — the fighting, the sandals, the blood, the legend,’’ Whitfield says.

‘‘When the scripts came, I was blown away. It’s a unique combination of real hard edge, heart, passion and power.’’ Spartacus, GO!, Wednesday, August 18, 7.30pm
