Spartacus: The Complete Series Blu-ray

Posted June 17, 2014 03:31 PM by Webmaster

Anchor Bay EntertainmentAnchor Bay Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray release of Spartacus: The Complete Series, which is being made available via a standard box set and a Limited Edition Collector's Set. Both Blu-ray/UltraViolet Digital HD combo packs include a full disc of new bonus features as well as three new Season One audio commentaries. The Complete Series sets arrive on September 16th.

Synopsis: Spartacus tells the classic tale of the Republic's most infamous rebel, who comes alive in the series' first season, Blood and Sand. Then comes Gods of the Arena, a prequel that explores a deadly history before the arrival of Spartacus, and the death he now carries with him. The second season, Vengeance, continues to follow Spartacus as he is faced with a choice to either satisfy his personal need for vengeance, or make the sacrifices necessary to keep his growing army from breaking apart at the seams. Finally, in War of the Damned, Spartacus carves his name into history as he plots to avenge his wife's death and leads Batiatus' slaves in a bloody uprising that will not be forgotten or equaled. All four seasons are currently available on Blu-ray.

The series features Andy Whitfield in a star-making turn in the title role for season one, Liam McIntyre takes over as Spartacus for Seasons Two and Three. Also featured in memorable roles are John Hannah (The Mummy, Four Weddings and A Funeral), Peter Mensah (300, The Incredible Hulk), Manu Bennett (30 Days of Night), Nick E. Tarabay (TV's Crash), Dustin Clare (Underbelly), Dan Feuerriegel (Home and Away), Simon Merrells (The Wolfman), Todd Lasance (Cloudstreet), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (FlashForward) and Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess, Parks and Recreation).

"The gods finally bless us with the complete collection," says creator and executive producer Steven S. DeKnight. "Spartacus was a true labor of love for everyone who worked on it and I'm incredibly proud to present all 39 episodes in stunning high-def for the fans to enjoy at their leisure." Adding, "But make sure you watch them in the order they first aired to revel in the experience as originally intended."

Spartacus: The Complete Series is presented in 1080p with Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround. All previously released extras will be available in the set. New bonus features include:
  • Three New Season One Audio Commentaries
  • Spartacus Fan Favorites With Liam McIntyre
  • Scoring A Hit: Composer Joseph LoDuca
  • An Eye Full: Roger Murray
  • Spartacus: Paul Grinder
  • The Last Word: John Hannah

Even though it's self-inflicted (because I could just not buy anything), September is killing me. Hahaha

Awesome. Glad I hesitated so many times to pick up the individual seasons. Will be sure to get this.

I have watched all of the series while on Starz and it was pretty good. However, I believe I'll pass on this one. Like I said, if you haven't watched it, its a good buy, but for me, it isn't something that I would not probably want to watch again. But if you haven't watched it, go for it.

Damn!!!! September is shaping up to be a costly month lol. SO glad to hear about the 3 new commentaries and the inclusion of UV redemption for the series. This is one I have no problem double-dipping on, in fact I had it all planned out a while ago. A friend of mine said when the inevitable complete set is released would I sell him my individual blurays to him. Truth be told I would have just gifted them but fair trade he gets my blurays and I get 4 8-course dinners. He's a chef.... feed me lol.

"I AM SPARTACUS!!!!!" :-P

@4EverJohnnyBoy September is always one of the most expensive months, if not the most. For me, anyway.

Also in case anyone was debating on whether or not this series was worth the double-dip, I can break it down with the following facts as to why it is indeed worth it. The biggest draw here (that was not written in the above bluray.com breakdown) is that this collection contains the complete UNCUT and UNCENSORED episodes for the entire series. The previously released bluray editions total a runtime of 2,044 minutes, but these bluray collections have a runtime total of 2,173 minutes. The uncut runtime totals 129 minutes of additional footage. That combined with the listed new bonus features above make this a well thought out collection. Very happy to see such passion put into this set.

@4EverJohnnyBoy: I don't know where you got that new running time (and what's included in it), or how exact your total running time for the previous 4 sets is, but I seriously doubt that the episodes will feature any added footage. The old sets were already supposed to feature the extended cuts, according to their press releases. I mean, it would be great, but I'm convinced it's impossible.
I'll have to think hard whether double-dipping for 3 audio commentaries is worth it. I'm my present situation I don't think so...

@Jagguir - Well the previous runtime is based on the previous bluray sets and the new runtime is based on the breakdown listed in the press release for the item itself. From October 2013 through January 2014 STARZ re-aired the entire series in full uncut/uncensored format. Whatever scenes were originally cut from the series original airings were put back in by the creators/producers and so that is what these sets will include. Not merely as an "additional scenes" extra but they will be in each episode that it originally belonged to. I understand not being in a position financially to double-dip these days, trust me I'm not either but this is one I can justify it as long as I save properly and don't splurge on anything else. The previous bluray editions did in fact contain extended episodes, yes but only select episodes were the full uncut versions. Not every episode was uncut as they are advertising this set to be. I was just posting about that because it was missing from the write-up above, and for me that is definitely a big reason to go in for these new collections. Hopefully, we'll get some unboxing pics or videos soon :-)

@4EverJohnnyBoy - As jaaguir said, the individual Blu-ray releases already included the not only extended episodes, but enhanced VFX (mainly from the "Blood and Sand") where they hadn't really finished out the VFX off of the cliff from the Gladiator training villa. STARZ just basically re-aired the Blu-ray cuts. Your 129 extra minutes is most likely the extra bonus disc of new special features.

My curiosity if starting to get the better of me, but not there yet. (Too much else to deal with yet.)
