I've been REALLY disappointed in the last two episodes, its like they're just mailing in the final season, i'd be willing to bet the original lineup of directors and writers arent even working on it anymore.
The dialogue has gotten reeeal corny and clunky.
The fight scenes are suffering, last week when Spartacus, Gannacus and co. are ambushed by the romans when the ship docked, Gannacus goes for a guys legs with his sword and the guy leaps forward in a somersault long before the sword gets anywhere near him, it was painfully obvious and they just went ahead with it.
The new black chick who plays Crixxus girl flat out SUCKS as an actress.
Even the costumes are lacking believability... too clean when they should look dirty, too dirty when they should be cleaner, too many extras in identical, cookie cutter getups.
Its too bad because the first two seasons were ****ing excellent, new episode tonight at 8, but i'm preparing to be disappointed again.
