    I think it is too early to tell. I'd love for it to be as good as Spartacus season 1 but that is a pretty high standard. Time will tell.

    When did Spartacus become the litmus test for great shows?

    IIRC, it was only good in how serious it took itself when it was a hacky show at best. Blood and gore plus tons of nudity. Or are posters here saying that was their expectation for this show?

    Blood, gore, and nudity with a large dollop of soap opera is what I expect from Black Sails, so comparing it to Spartacus seems fair.

    Did you miss the part where I said Spartacus was "not great"? :rolleyes:

    My point was that Spartacus consistently exceeded my expectations. I did not have high expectations for it, but neither did I have high expectations for Black Sails. Even so, Black Sails fell significantly below my expectations.

    Yes I did. You're also not the only one to make the Spartacus link. So, you know, not everything is about YOU.
