Ya, I didn't realize it until about two hours before hand. My brother walked out into the living room and said "Oh, by the way, Spartacus starts up again tonight".
The pilot had a couple good points I liked the scene near the end with Crassus training on the Gladiator in front of Tiberius. And how he purposefully sent the messengers by Spartacus' camp so they would get caught and Spartacus would kill Crassus' competition. I know little of the actual history so I have nothing to compare it to..
Oh, And of course a threesome scene between a guy and two girls that quickly cuts to two dudes having sex so the writers can laugh at all the people caught by surprise. Ha ha you are aroused and there are two naked dudes going at it.
I think I'll miss Viva Bianca. Not so much Lucy Lawless. Maybe if she had done it back when she was Warrior Princess and everyone was swooning it would have been interesting.
