As a massive fan of Startacus Blood and Sand and then Gods of the Arena, I been anxiously awaiting the premiere of this season for alot of reasons.

This was a really good season premiere and Liam MacIntyre is without a doubt a good substitute but he's got nowhere near the same level of muscle mass as Andy Whitfields and I found that to be a little distracting. Having said that I think he's really taking the role well and will continue to do something special with it.
