If you haven't seen the show yet then you're missing out. Tits, arse, and severed limbs have never been so entertaining.

Bought it and played it once without ever seeing the show. I like the game, but you have to play with the right crowd that doesn't take offense to a little backstabbery.

That's what I thought for he first couple of episodes and then it takes off. The key is to remember it has its own reality such as the language etc..

Playing the game which is a great in itself and not many tie ins can say that, but knowing the show increases the fun even more and makes you respect the design even more.

By the way thanks for everyone's replies.

I enjoyed the show before buying the game.

I was skeptical about the game at first to be honest. Then I heard the D6Generation review then I bought it. And I love the game and I am impatient on getting the expansion

I caught one episode well after buying the game and, while the game is freaking awesome, the source material is garbage. The cgi blood splatter and squirt and spill in the arena especially stood out in a bad way. I don't mean that it was too overdone, but the cgi quality was terrible.

It was a great show and seriously hope to see them maybe see GF9 do another game based on a series, maybe a war game next...

Probably one of the most satisfying show endings ever.

Ah, computer animation - the true definition of YMMV...it's either phenomenal or SyFY channel quality.

It was supposed to be exactly that sort of gritty/300/dark/Sin City sort of look.

It was brutal.... brutally awesome.

Season 1 was about the best TV I have had in years and years.

If you guys haven't seen season 1. Watch it. Blood and Sand is a guys kind of show, and virtually all of the guys I know that watch it, LOVE it.

Love the show though. You have inspired me to re-watch the first couple of shows.

I was shown the game, which made me try the show. I was iffy on the show at first, liking it enough to watch a few more, but not loving it. The weird way they do the blood, and green screen stuff kind of put me off. Then around episode 4 or 5, I fell in love. By the end of the first season I had declared it my favorite show of all time. The seasons since have not changed this opinion, and I now watch an episode of Spartacus just about every night.

The board game is also my #1 game, though Game of Thrones is a close second.

My previous top show was Deadwood FYI.

Was that actually THE last episode? I pray it was... I love the show but it just gets worse with each season. I'd rather have them kill it now!
