I think officially but you can watch the premiere on line if you don't have OnDemand. I can't decide about it yet. Loved first season as it built up

ON Starz? http://www.starz.com/originals/spartacus/Videos/#/episode-201?src=starz_marketing&med=email&content=012012_e_stzsps2sample&cmp=programming

It was okay. These guys are good writers for Russ Meyer meets Sam Peckinpah stuff

I just watched it on OnDemand, but the link i gave you is the way I watched BOSS Premiere

It's on next Friday officially anyway

Yeah the second season was really a prequel and filler space.

Without bashing it, I think the season 2 opener could have been better because season 1 always made me think I knew what was going to happen and it was always a little different.

I'll get into it more after you guys see it. It's still pretty good and probably needs some time

Smiley, you should be able to click that link right? You're in the states

Yeah, that stuff is cool, but don't you think it's lacking in the script a little compared to first season. Like every episode (just about) in the first season went in a different direction than you expected. Also the main character was much more of a anti hero. Antagonists seemed a lot more formidable too.

Realize it's only been one episode, but I waited a long time for this return.

I'm sure it will pick up and maybe it's just me. It's definitely still bloody and perverted enough to keep me watching LOL

I was a huge fan of the first season!

I like to watch these at the gym, but there's so much sex. I need to find a treadmill in the corner.

Okay, I have to say it. After about 4 episodes this is almost as bad as Sons Of Anarchy without the motorcycles

first season was awesome. this is really sad

The writing on that show sucks. Take away the blood and naked chicks, and it's dumb as fuck.

Why does it take him so long to break out of slavery? I mean it took a whole season, a WHOLE SEASON.

I had never seen it before, but after this thread decided to grab it and watch it.

LOVED the first 2 seasons (well season 1 and the prequel) but having just watched Ep 1 od Season 2, I have to say that it has a different feel, but I think it's because there is no Andy Whitfield! I mean, it's a little hard to have him on the show when he passed away last year, but the new actor feels like an impostor - no where near as good as Andy!!

No, dude this is probably one of the worst screw ups I have ever seen in my fucking life. Last weeks episode was almost watchable, but this season is fucking horrible. The characters are one dimensional. I don't know if the actors can act or not cause they don't have scripts to try to act on, and the plot is going absolutely nowhere. First season he was a dirty hateful anti hero with good reason. This year he's a comic book superhero that makes superman look less heroic

In fairness I was amazed at how great the first season was because of the overall plot of the Spartacus story to begin with and the fact that they were playing off of the success of 300, but it's hard seeing something they made so good tank so fucking badly.

Anyways, BOSS was fucking awesome, But I've yet to see STARZ get two good season out of anything they ever did yet. Stick with HBO, LOL

It's a damn shame too. I thought they did an awesome job first season. I actually wanted to not like it because I watch too much crap now, but that show was so fucking good I had to watch every episode and it paid off all the way to the end of the season. Now it's just your typical crap!

so sad.

Dexter too though but that took five seasons so that's a lot of writing

Big Love took three and then you had to sit through 2 ugly fucking final seasons
