"Spartacus: Vengeance" (Starz, January 27)
The first season of Starz' blood-and-nudity-filled "Spartacus" concluded back in April of 2010 and since that time, a lot has changed, including the tragic death of star Andy Whitfield. After last winter's "Gods of the Arena" prequel season, "Spartacus" finally returns with Liam McIntyre taking over for Whitfield and a returning cast that includes Lucy Lawless, Peter Mensah, Manu Bennett and more. Expect the basic brutality and carnality to remain intact.
