Think the gore is the same, but it's a bit more realistic...the budget for the show must have gone up!

To each his own, I guess. For me the (so called) porn and violence are just a few elements to this show. Others:
I wasn't there but I get the impression that sex, among other basic human traits such as open air public bathrooms and the use of drugs and alcohol , was not seen as taboo. This show chooses to not only display these acts, but to weave them into the storyline. A refreshing change of pace to other shows on these days. I agree there was a lot of sex and violence but really, isn't that what this show has been about since ep. 1?
Not exactly, the story and acting is superb, also.
It is the best show on tv. In my oppinion, the original series was one of the best I ever watched. Gods of the Arena is shaping up to be just as good.
Can't wait for the next episode.
