I think our free year of Starz is expiring soon. My wife says we aren't going to pay for Starz, so we are out of watching the new season.

Unless netflix has it later, or blockbuster.

Netflix should have it within 24 hrs of it airing as they did with the other Spartacus projects

I thought Netflix didn't renew with Starz. Because Starz wanted to much money.

Too bad but if that is the case then the first ep airing on January 27 th should be good to go at the very least as this is under the cited February deadline.

It expires in march.
If you have blockbuster movie pass i'm pretty sure starz is one of the channels you get for free.

As long as we are subscribed to Starz or other "premium" channs.

I have to log into Dishonline.com, and it goes by what you are paying for on your account.
Hence I can't stream HBO, or showtime, but I can stream Encore.

I do have Blockbuster moviepass. There is no streaming there. It's just DVDs and games.

I can "program"/rent programs from Dishonline.com, to appear on my receiver. But I'd need the right type of receiver and it has to be hooked up to the internet.

I have blockbuster movie pass too. And what i meant was - It gives you 20 free channels as part of the instant streaming on your dvr.

Starz is one of those channels.

350-380(or whatever epix2 is)

Blockbuster has streaming - You do it directly through your box (if it has a broadband line). It sucks but it exists. I just saw a documentary on it 2 days ago.

I'm going to call Dish and see if I can get the sling box receiver.
Our current receiver, doesn't have a network connection.

It looks like they have replaced Lesley-Ann Brandt AKA Naevia with Cynthia Addai-Robinson.

»www.imdb.com/title/tt1442449/

Listing two actors for the same character in this case is likely due to the use of cut-scenes from a previous season.

I noticed that too. Wasn't pleased with that at all. Any news on why?

My guess is that she was working on a project that she was contractually obligated to complete when they resumed work on Spartacus: Vengeance. For what its worth she was in 2012: Zombie Apocalypse with Ving Rhames which might have been a made for SciFi channel project (shudder).

She is an extraordinarily beautiful woman and exemplarity actor. I’m sorry to see she wont be in this season (as it seems). Losing original cast members is never good IMO.

Yes! It was damn good. I'm glad the one douche took the spear. I hated him since the first season.

Yeah. It felt like Blood and Sand again.

Starz has such shitty contract terms. No other network would allow actors to just leave like this - They make them sign a 7 year contract.

Also, last episode was amazing. I don't like the new guy, he's trying too had to be manly and he's not able to pull it off. Good thing they brought back Gannicus.

Anybody know if this is the last season or there's more? I googled but didn't find anything.

Well if you’re familiar with the history and assuming the writers didn’t stray much from history there will be some more deaths and the introduction of some new characters before things go to conclusion. There will be some noteworthy defeats and noteworthy victories. I’m not sure they can get it all into the remainder of the season without giving it the bum’s rush or describing the historical events with a long wordy crawler at the end.

I don't know if they've been officially picked up for more seasons but I'm sure the idea is to keep the show going for multiple seasons.

There is still A LOT of history to work through.. they've barely even skimmed the top yet.

Indeed but like BattleSatar Galactica there is a built in ending. The story has progressed considerably and the fugitive slaves were already in relatively close proximity to Mount Vesuvius. Specific events still need to take place but we are probably closer to the end then we are the beginning,….or at the very least somewhere close to the middle depending on how they embellish or drag it out,….

I think this season will still be based around them growing their ranks. Releasing other slaves from this house and that house.

A lot of the major engagements between the rebellion and the Romans I think will be played out in a next season. Of course, this is just a guess and in no way do I have anything to back up that claim. lol..

I'll say this tho, I sure hope they go on for a few more seasons. I love this show!

It looks like next week they are starting with the crucifixions. I usually associate this with the end of the story but clearly this isn’t the case.

How did Ashur walk without a limp? I thought that one of his leg was badly damaged, which could not heal properly.

I believe it wasn't a permanent injury. Appears it has healed completely at this point. It would have most likely been a long long time since the injury he suffered from Crixus at this point.
