Re: Spartacus Season 3 War of The Damned Trailer

After watching a few episodes of Spartacus, I think it might be possible for them to turn the Gor book series into a TV show. Gor falls into the adult theme/nature that Spartacus was. And it has a Sci-fi twist.
A counter Earth that is hidden on the other side of the sun. Ruled by Priest Kings, an alien race that refuses to allow technology to advance past a certain point. It's ok to have a vaccine that grants you long live and freedom from illness, but a flushing toilet just might get you killed by the Priest Kings. They don't want the counter Earth to end up like Earth.
Then you have the Kurri. A large humanoid cat/bear race that live on the "steel worlds". Ships that are outside the Earth's solar system. Their agents manage to slip past the Priest Kings to wreck havoc on Gor.
Then you have the humans. Men who are men and make no apologies for it. Woman who are slaves and their sole purpose in life is to please their male masters or risk getting killed. You have free woman, but they aren't common.
Swords and bows are the weapons of choice, and very few Goreans live to see a ripe old age. They have large birds to fly on, giant reptiles to use for travel, sailing ships.

IMO, a perfect replacement for Spartacus.

It started in the 60's and I think a couple have been written in the 2000's. The author was Blacklisted in the late 70's early 80's due to feminists. They felt treating women as slaves wasn't a good thing. Sharon Green came out with her strong female heroes and subpar male supporting casts [which was ok by the feminist].
If you can find a copy of the first book it's pretty good. The author tends to get side tracked and spends a lot of time on small details. For example why a coin has a certain size, weight, design to it.
The books also launched a S/M bondage style called Gorean.
