By Jupiter's Cock: Spartacus Season 2

    
You were nothing before me. I gave you everything. I gave you the means to accept your fate.
                                                      Batiatus (1x13 - Kill Them All)

   Now you are destroyed by it.
                                                         Spartacus (1x13 - Kill Them All)

I love this series. Yes, it's pretty silly, completely over the top - and so freaking entertaining! It has everything a good series needs. A plot full of intrigue, vengeance and blood. Lots and lots of blood. And, of course, a very naked Lucy Lawless doesn't hurt either. Almost exactly two years after the premiere episode the second season will (finally) air in January, 2012. :)

On the heels of the bloody escape from the House of Batiatus that concluded "Spartacus: Blood and Sand", the gladiator rebellion continues and begins to strike fear into the heart of the Roman Republic in "Spartacus: Vengeance". Gaius Claudius Glaber and his Roman troops are sent to Capua to crush the growing band of freed slaves that Spartacus leads before it can inflict further damage. Spartacus (now played by Liam McIntyre) is presented the choice of satisfying his personal need for vengeance against the man that condemned his wife to slavery and eventual death or making the larger sacrifices necessary to keep his budding army from breaking apart. Containing all of the blood-soaked action, exotic sexuality, and villainy and heroism that has come to distinguish the series, the tale of Spartacus resumes in epic fashion.
