A bold new television show for the violently inclined.

If you thought 300 was too violent, don’t watch this. If you thought ‘Rome’ was too much, don’t watch this. A new show titled ‘Spartacus: Blood and Sand’ is coming to your home in January 2010 courtesy of cable channel Starz. It is as stated above, a harmoniously filthy coming together of ‘300’, ‘Gladiator’ and ‘Rome’.

Word on the street is rather outrageous but generally positive, I hear that the violence is excruciatingly immense, and the sex pushes the envelope on everything but the stick and hole according to TV.com:

“The sex scenes (complete with nudity) are so explicit everyone short of sex workers will blush. Every detail of the brutal gladiatorial massacres in Roman arenas is included — arching blood squirts, sliced tendons, the works. Seriously, it’s like 300 on steroids.”

See for yourself:

…And this is just the trailer which is cut and censored for promotion. Could you have imagined something like this on television let alone cinemas  five to six years ago? Just speaks volumes about the sort of infestation society is developing through

Five more years and I’ll consider a vasectomy.

Check out some more pictures here…

Hideous. I mean Lucy Lawless from 'Xena: Warrior Princess' fame.

If you found this to insatiate your appetitie then I am sure there is plenty more for you to check out at http://www.starz.com/originals/spartacus. We shall see come in January whether there is any semblance of story involved, or they might as well have stuck to point and called it ‘Blood and Sex’.
