Spartacus is a TV show that didn't convince me when I saw the first episode. I thought it was a bad '300' movie copy. I found this show again 2 years ago and realized how good it really was. Sure, this must be the most violent TV show there is with extra nudity and sex, but it's the characters that kept me coming back. Most of them felt really one dimensional at first, but then we got to know them better and care for them.
The show follows Spartacus' story quite truthfully and many of the characters have really existed.
But I'm not sure to whom I'd recommend this show. I'm not the biggest fan of historical shows, but there's something genuinely interesting and touching about this. Ok, and I'm not against the half naked male bodies either. ;) And although this show is full of testosterone there are plenty of very strong female characters in the mix.
Has any of you watched the show and do you have any favorite characters?
