Bloody ... but bloody good.
When this series first started I figured it might just be another of those mindless pseudo-epics you see on Starz - a Spartacus spin-off.
But it isn't.
Yes, there's lots of violence - surely some blood - but the overall production is high quality - and has continually improved.
So it's just a matter of whether they can keep the writing on a decent level.
So far so good.
