As the SPARTACUS franchise on Staraz comes to its final season with SPARTACUS: WAR OF THE DAMNED, both star Liam McIntyre and executive producer/creator Steven S. DeKnight spoke to the press about the new season at Comic-Con 2012. As Spartacus leads an army into war, DeKnight is particularly excited about more deaths coming our way. “Yes, there are some deaths in the coming season that I have been thinking about for quite awhile,” he admits without naming names. “I can’t even hint at what it is, but it occurs later this season. I will say, we wanted to explore the …Read On »

Movie Review: THE FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT

FIVE YEAR ENGAGMENT | © 2012 Universal Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Chris Pratt, Alison Brie Writer: Jason Segel & Nicholas Stoller Director: Nicholas Stoller  Distributor: Universal Studios Release Date: April 27, 2012 THE FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT is pretty much what you would (or have come to expect) from this particular niche of comedy. It’s almost like an R rated SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE…which is not really a comparison, but more of an origin for this type of romantic comedy. Certainly BRIDESMAIDS was a big part of the founding of this new off brand of adult comedy that pokes fun at being married, or getting married, …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: SPARTACUS VENGEANCE star Dustin Clare on surviving Season 2 and next season

SPARTACUS VENGEANCE has finished cutting a bloody swath across Friday nights on Starz, and the body count left in its wake is a considerable chunk of the recurring cast. Dustin Clare who plays Gannicus luckily was not one of the casualties, and the actor has now done two series of the hit show, VENGEANCE and the prequel series GODS OF THE ARENA. Pre-production has already started on the third season of the show, but ASSIGNMENT X got the chance to chat with Clare about returning to a whole new world in this second season of the on-going series. The actor …Read On »

TV Review: SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE – “Wrath of the Gods” – Season Finale

Stars: Lucy Lawless, Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, Viva Bianca, Craig Parker Writer: Steven S. DeKnight, Created by Steven S. DeKnight Director: Jesse Warn Network: STARZ, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 30, 2012 So endeth SPARTACUS VENGEANCE. What a glorious and bloody end everything came to. “Wrath of the Gods” has so many deeply satisfying moments, not only tying up loose ends from the original series, but also from the prequel. Following hot on the heels of several main character deaths in the last episode let’s take a tally of who gets hacked off in this one. List …Read On »

TV Review: SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE – “Balance”

Stars: Lucy Lawless, Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, Viva Bianca, Craig Parker Writer: Seamus Kevin Fahey, Created by Steven S. DeKnight Director: Jesse Warn Network: STARZ, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 16, 2012 I was not a person who initially liked the original SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND. I admit to only having watched the first three-fourths of the pilot (before Lucy Lawless and John Hannah even appeared on screen) and I was so unimpressed that I shut it off and didn’t return to the show until DVD. Once I got into it, I was hooked. I had marathons …Read On »

Exclusive: SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE star Manu Bennett talks Crixus

Manu Bennett in SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE | ©2012 Starz

SPARTACUS VENGEANCE is cutting a bloody swath across Friday nights on STARZ, and this second season picks up shortly after the first season BLOOD AND SAND left off. Manu Bennett plays Crixus a Gaul gladiator who was once enslaved by the House of Batiatus to fight to the death for his maters’ amusement. Crixus joins Spartacus’ cause after a betrayal at the end of the last episode of the first season, and he leaves the Ludus to find his lost love Naevia. As this season has proven, nothing is certain even though the former slaves and gladitaors have their freedom. …Read On »

TV Review: SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE – “Sacramentum”

Dustin Clare in SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE - "Sacramentum" | ©2012 Starz

Stars: Lucy Lawless, Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, Viva Bianca, Craig Parker Writer: Seamus Kevin Fahey, Created by Steven S. DeKnight Director: Jesse Warn Network: STARZ, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 9, 2012 The pacing of the last couple of SPARTACUS VENGEANCE episodes continues with “Sacramentum”. Instead of just skulking around the woods and killing off Romans (and yes rescuing people when the need calls for it) Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) decides to head to the ports and liberate some warriors who are being sold into slavery. The ship they overtake is full of Agron’s (Daniel Feuerriegel) people, so …Read On »

TV Review: SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE – “Chosen Path”

Steven Dunlevy in SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE - "Chosen Path" | ©2012 Starz

Stars: Lucy Lawless, Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, Viva Bianca, Craig Parker Writer: Misha Green, Created by Steven S. DeKnight Director: Michael Hurst Network: STARZ, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 24, 2012 “Chosen Path” is an interesting new episode of SPARTACUS VENGEANCE. There’s a lot going on in the wake of the destruction of the gladiatorial arena of Capua, and while some of it is good, a lot seems pretty bad for those involved. Of course the subheading of this episode could be one of my favorite lines from CARNIVALE, “there ain’t no secret to dancing the cooch.” …Read On »

TV Review: SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE – “Libertus”

Dustin Clare in SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE - "Libertus" | ©2012 Starz

Stars: Lucy Lawless, Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, Viva Bianca, Craig Parker Writer: Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing, Created by Steven S. DeKnight Director: Rick Jacobson  Network: STARZ, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 24, 2012 I feel that “Libertus” in the line of episodes of SPARTACUS VENGEANCE is more than likely what many fans have been waiting for. This new season has been a slow build, allowing for the audience to adjust to the new actor playing Spartacus (Liam McIntyre), and now clearly that time is over as the action in this episode stands as testament. Crixus (Manu …Read On »
