I would definitely recommend this Blu-ray version and give it a solid 5.

Overall, I absolutely love this show and I still watch it whenever there isn't anything worth watching on the telly.

I loved it, it has something for everyone, and Andy Whitfield is or was Spartacus Starz knew what it had when the story was pitched to them and whoever was the genius that chose to let the story carry the weight of the first season and be creative on the depiction of Rome with minimal sets should be rewarded with much coin. While the characters are based on true people the events are mostly fictitious so a history lesson this is not.
