it is almost to the point I would rather not see blood being flung around as it is ,than see the weak CGI blood. the story seems to be based solely on language and sex than a actual storyline, which is too bad considering the Gladiator attraction that has swept the public medium as of late. I am sure that 300 ( creators, actors and directors ) loves seeing that same stop/slow motion every 3 seconds that happens just to give a pseudo 3-D feel. I am can see that some will disagree with the stilted action and lack of any character development that this series has. It would have been nice to get a little back story in the beginning than have to wait to see why everyone is action like they are. I hope this is a one season filler because I would hate to see a good time slot wasted on something that almost seems rushed to write and televise.
