For those who never heard of this series, I'll explain.
Back in Roman times, when there was alot of slavery and what-not, a certain slave-turn-gladiator named Spartacus led one of the largest slave revolts in Roman history.
HBO found this to be a great story to work with so they made a series based on these historical events, to a certain degree that is. I believe this was supposed to be the second series based on Spartacus that HBO has made. I'm not entirely sure, but what I do know is that this was one of the best. Andy Whitfield plays as Spartacus, the lead male role, who was diagnosed with cancer a while back but his doctors gave him the green light after treatment. Now, it seems that it has returned and his doctors strongly advise him to start heavy treatment. Unfortunately for us, the image of Andy Whitfield as Spartacus is etched into our brains and any other actor playing as the part just wont do.
