So as you can see the cast rather unkown except Katheryn Winick who had roles in romances such as Love and other drugs or killers, and maybe Jessalyn Gislig she played Terry Shuester in Glee.

It could be compared to Spartacus, only without nudity, less violence but much better acting. I suggest if you don´t know it to check it out.

The trailer might not look like much but it really is an interesting TV Show, plus it has an amazing opening theme.

Lost interest here: "It could be compared to Spartacus, only without nudity, less violence but much better acting."

Just kidding, I wil probably check it out once season 1 is over.

I would have said it is Spartacus in good but that would have caused too much controversy



Better acting you say? Is it really? The acting in Spartacus is very good at times (like most of the main Romans), but some actors are lacking indeed. Are you watching Season 3?

Could be good.

I LOVE ICELAND!

The acting in Spartacus is really weak. Some of the main characters like Crixus and Spartacus are doing a solid job but everybody else is just not good.

Answer my question, damn it!

People like Batiatus, Lucretia, Marcus Crassus, Glaber, Ashur were all amazing though. It's just some of the slaves that are weak (like new Naevia).
