Spartacus: The Compete Series (Limited Edition Collector's Set)

Review Date September 18th, 2014 by
Overview -

This is a special release. A compilation of all Starz's 'Spartacus' seasons in gloriously over-the-top blood-spattered packaging. There's not much focus on the actual content, although there are some new special features. This is mainly a gory tribute to the show. A macabre mantel piece for fans to show off in their homes, if you're into that kind of thing. The seasons themselves are the same. Most of this review will simply link to previous reviews. However, later on, I'll cover the new special features that come along with this set.

Final Thoughts

The reason you're getting this set, if you are, is because you're an absolute die-hard fan of the show. This isn't a casual fan purchase. It takes a certain kind of fan to want to display this gory memento on their shelves. The price point should disuade most. The biggest problem is there isn't much in the way of actual new content that should excite people. Sure, there are some new commentaries and a few new featurettes, but nothing ground-breaking that might warrant purchasing this. The real draw is the packaging. If you dig it, then this is certainly for you. This is a "For Fans Only" purchase if I've ever seen one.
