Spartacus: Blood and Sand

I grew up in the 80's watching the original Kubrick Spartacus on television. I saw it maybe 6 or 7 times and had a special fondness for it. It has been a long time since I last saw it, but the new Starz series Spartacus: Blood and Sand is evoking those memories from my childhood. This is not a show for children though. The sex and violence are probably too much for some adults even, but if you can stomach them you are in for a treat. The story they have told so far has me on the edge of my seat and wanting more. What started out as a guilty pleasure has become a must watch for Crystal and me, right along with Lost, House and True Blood.
