I have to mention one of the most amazing series I ever watched: "Spartacus: Blood and Sand".
Watching the first episode, one may have the impression that the show is some kind of spin-off of "300", or a gross exhibition of naked and dead bodies.
But it's not.
"Spartacus" has great actors, beautiful scenes, and a dynamic plot that keeps getting better and better through every episode. The season finale is astonishing, the best season finale I ever watched.
Spartacus it's not a TV show for kids or a sensitive person, but its violence and sex are used to tell a smart story that every adult will enjoy.
The actor that plays the lead character got cancer and so the second season, "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena", will be a prequel.Here is the link
for the trailer for the second season and here
, for the first season (both with portuguese subtitles).
