Starz decides to marathon 'Spartacus' in chronological order
Are you a linearly-minded TV viewer waiting for the perfect opportunity to catch up on Starz' blood-and-guts-and-boobs-and-abs epic "Spartacus"? Boy oh boy does Starz have a plan for you.
Starting on June 8, Starz will begin marathoning all 29 episodes of "Spartacus" in chronological order on Friday nights.
That means that on June 8 and June 15, the six-hour "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena," a prequel miniseries that aired between the first and second full seasons, will air over two nights.
Then, over five bittersweet weeks, viewers can honor the late Andy Whitfield by watching "Spartacus: Blood and Sand."
Finally, starting on July 20, Starz will reair the most recent season, "Spartacus: Vengeance," featuring Liam McIntyre in the title role ("Spartacus" not "Vengeance").
