coogar: spartacus is better than game of thrones - ...

Frostyzone: And here we go again...

How could you honestly pick Spartacus above the epic Game of Thrones Series. While Spartacus gained notoriety through it's no holds barred approach to story telling, Game of thrones actually captivated the world by it's authenticity. Little wonder why year after year, the later is collecting countless awards, the former is continually been ignored. Who wants to honour a violent soft porn tv series anyway?

Picking Spartacus above Game of thrones tells me alot about your taste, which is sadly IMO, not very objective.

Samunosuke: Are you shitting me? There is no way in the 7 kingdoms that you seriously believe Spartacus is better than Game of Thrones. Westeros is the creation from some one's mind while the arena is real history. No comparison there. Look at all the fantasy fiction out there: Lord of the Rings (+ the hobbit), Harry Potter etc. They are all epic. Spartacus, while good, is mostly blood and gore, building on from the success of 300.

coogar: fantasy vs realism - which should people buy into?
what made spartacus lose his vibe was the death of andy whitfield - the viewers had connected with him in season one and his loss did a lot of damage to the viewership. spartacus' season one has more substance than anything game of thrones can provide....people watch shows to pick on one liners and great quotes, not the growls of imps and lannisters. mention one memorable quote on GOT.....abeg, go and sit down with your tunnel-vision!

Dan_de_Numeruno:

There are several actually.

Sandor (The Hound): Any man dies with a clean sword, I'll ra.pe his fu-king corpse!

Cersei: The gods have no mercy, that's why they're gods.

Varys: I've always hated the bells. They ring for horror, a dead king, a city under siege. A wedding.

Tyrion: Those are brave men knocking at our
door. Let's go kill them!

Cersei: Tears aren't a woman's only weapon The best one's between your legs.

Tyrion: I much like my head. I don't want to
see it removed just yet.

-Bronn: Do you know how to use that?

-Tyrion: I chopped wood once. No, actually, I
watched my brother chop wood.

-Tyrion: I'm the captain. If this ship goes
down, I go down with it.

-Varys: I'm sure many captains said the same
when the ship was afloat.

Those are only but a few. There are more epic ones that I will post later on.

Dan_de_Numeruno: Here are some of the epic ones;

Eddard Stark: The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword.

Grand Maester Pycelle: A dying mind is a demented mind, Lord Stark. For all the weight they're given, last words are usually as significant as first words.

Jaime Lannister: People have been swinging at me for years, they always seem to miss.

Tywin Lannister: It's the family name that lives on. That's all that lives on. Not your personal glory, not your honor, but family.

Tyrion Lannister: A Lannister always pays his debts.

coogar: these are memorable quotes? i laugh in doctore!
batiatus alone made more sick quotes than these ones.....are you kidding me? the only character on GOT that would walk into the spartacus set is the imp......the others are as bland as saliva!

Dan_de_Numeruno: Lol! Batiatus was insane with some of his explicit quotes, but it doesn't make one think. It only amuses. Game of Thrones on the other hand is full of insightful quotes.

It seems like you hate Game of Thrones for your own reasons, but it is really a great series. Very original and totally unpretentious, unlike Spartacus.

coogar: i don't hate game of thrones - i saw the first 2 seasons and i was particularly impressed with season 1. in my opinion, season 2 was mehhhhh but i am watching the current season. it's corny to compare GOT with spartacus. people tend to underrate spartacus because of the sheer nüdity and the raw violence but beyond those are dialogues that would make you fall in love with engish language. words put together so intelligently it would make shakespeare grin in his grave.....

batiatus' quotes should be etched in gold......some are explicit some would just make you go bonkers. i have missed his character so much. he talks with so much aura to make you look beyond his despicable leadership. he's not the only one, his wife is world class too so are many of the characters on the show! you cannot compare both shows - spartacus wins on dialogue alone and the unusual english language they spoke on the show.

Dan_de_Numeruno: You made a very strong point. I have to agree with some of what you wrote. I do enjoy Spartacus because of it's raw and uncensored dialogues and excessive nudity and violence - I'm not a saint after all. And the Gods of the Arena remains my favorite season of the series, particularly because of the strong acting of Batiatus.


But I disagree on your view of Game of Thrones second season. It may not be as action packed as the first season, but it's more educational. To me it had more substance, because it actually made clear about some unresolved issues of season one.

Bottom line - Both shows are good in their own ways, but Game of Thrones edged out Spartacus on the bases of originality and creativity alone.

It's more internationally accepted than Spartacus would ever be.

ThiefOfHearts: Spartacus is garbage now. What's the point without Lucretia and Batiatus

abeg.

I must confess that I have not watched Game of Thrones, but if it beats Spartacus then it's gonna vie for one of my Best Series of All Time.

Spartacus is EPIC!!! If the gods truly exist and they watch the dialogues in Spartacus, they will SH.IT in their pants. Forget the nud.ity and violence, if they were not present Spartacus would still be awesome.

The movie makes you stand up, walk round your room shaking your head with excitement, and calmly sit down to continue. It's that great.

If you wanna develop your speaking skills, immerse yourself in Spartacus. And very soon people will marvel at the dexterity of your oratory prowress.

I will go get Game of Thrones but it better be worth all the hype oh.

Damn I love spartacus, it has this streak of brutality, sexuality, vulgarity, blood and gore added to it. I have downloaded game of thrones season 1 and 2 and would soon start watching it.

SPARTACUS - I remember him saying- "There is but one path. We must kill them all." grin

Doctore- What is beneath your feet
Sacred ground Doctore. Watered with tears of blood.
Doctore- Your tears. Your blood. Your pathetic lives forged into something of worth.

Re: Game Of Thrones Vs Spartacus by AMvanquish: 6:30pm On Apr 05, 2013
For me I personally hate series! I can't stand watchin episode after episode. I don't have that luxury of time. From 24, to Prison break , after watching two episodes I get fed up. This was until I watched game of thrones. I used 1 whole weekend to watch season 1. And quickly got to downloading season 2. To be honest! The sheer fact that it is unpredictable got me hooked! You cannot predict whose head would be cut off next, whose scheming would work out, infact its just like Nigerian politics. You never know what would happen next. Its the only series that I completed a whole season! Can't wait for season 3. Just my 2 cents.

I'm the famous words of Quintus Lentulus Batiatus. " Once again the gods spread the cheeks to ram co*k in f*ckingg a*sss"

Doctore - "you attack as you would a man, theokeles is beyond flesh, beyond blood and bones, he is the shadow that precedes death. Allow him to fall upon you alone and you are dead"

Anyone can watch spartacus and understand whats up bt thats nt d case with GOT. GOT is kinda boring somehow to say the truth but its a great show. I go with Spartacus
Re: Game Of Thrones Vs Spartacus by cashmentor(m): 6:40pm On Apr 05, 2013
i agree spartacus is raw, too raw that one would believe it's a demonic movie that promotes homosexuality and violence..... But beyound that is a story of someone growing from grass to grace, from slavery to becoming a Great Leader.... I don't know about you guys, but i watch movies/Series for the lessons and stories it tells..... I write down quotes because i'm a public speaker and Spartacus got that in bulks..... In all, i think both are Nice Series, with a great story, but i'm so hooked up to spartacus, my own opini.

I prefer GOT. The violence in spartacus is too much. I stopped watching from season two and besides spartacus was to predicticable. Whereas game of throne was truly a game no one knew how it will end. GOT keep making you asking why and how. I never believed Khal drogo and stark will die, that's the beauty GOT. if you love violence scenes soo much, well spartacus is for you.
