"This series makes a raw appeal to the senses, essentially converting its viewers into the cheering, lustful bread-and-circuses crowd that gathers to watch its gladiators battle to the death. It proves damned irresistible..." -- Grade: B+
This set contains every episode from the first season of the cable series SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND, which tells the tale of a slave who manages to escape his bondage to become one of the fiercest warriors in all of Ancient Rome.
