The third season kicked off. I thought it was good and bad. The new guy to take Andy Whitfield's place very good and captured the same spirit of Spartacus that Whitfield captured. However, I still like Whitfield a ton better. The opening fight scene was great, so was the whorehouse scene. But the end fight scene lacked believability. I also don't like how they brought back Lucretta (Lucy Lawless). Although I love her character, a stab wound like the one inflicted upon her would have killed her in the 21st century, there is no way she would have survived that B.C.! All and all it was good enough to keep me a loyal viewer and it's far from jumping the shark!
