How would history have played out if spartacus had won?
>>
WE WUZ GREEKS N ROMANS BRO
>>
>>529414
Probably people would think more of the kickass 1960 Kubrick film than the retarded faggot show when they hear the name "Spartacus".
>>
>>529414
He did win
All he wanted to do was go home
And they almost got there but most of the army was addicted to looting so they turned back
If they had carried on they would have disappeared into the wastes of history ie northern europe
>>
There was no win condition for Spartacus, he was literally doomed to fail. The Romans never would have let a slave revolt go unpunished and there was no way for him to dissuade them unless his army killed every single soldier the entire state had. Even then, what would he have done with his giant mob of hangers-on? What would even constitute a victory for him? Escaping from Roman territory? But there was zero chance that he would have been able to do that as he was right smack in the middle of it, probably as far from any border of the empire as he could ever have been.

>1960 Kubrick film
the what now?
>>
>>529515
>>All he wanted to do was go home
isn't that thrace? that would be eastern europe then. but won as in against the armies of rome and taken rome to rule
>>
>>529671
;__; Just don't, Anon

>retarded faggot show
C'mon, the politics and backstabbing were great, and obviously the centerpiece of the show.
They only added the pro-wrestling shit to appeal to the lowest common denominator and jack up the ratings.
>>
>>530005
it was fuckin awesome
>>

This fucking guy

Is this TV show any good.

I saw the thumbnail for it on Netflix but it was just shirtless /fit/ ripped men.
>>
>>530118
yeah its really fucking good. I put it off cause of those guys too but it turned out to be a great show. It'll have you beating your chest with the people on the screen, truly incredible.
>>
>>530118
The first season and its prequel season are good.
Once Battiatus and gang are gone though, it goes to shit.
Also the replacement actor for Spartacus sucks ass.
>>
>>529414
They were trying to get to North Africa, so I think they were trying to create their own Kingdom, similarly to how the Vandals and Alans took Carthage.

If they had won, winning being free from servitude, their victory would be establishment of a kingdom in Carthage.

After that? I guess Rome would try and conquer North Africa again.
>>
>>530173
north africa? another anon said german lands
>>
>>530159
>Spartacus sucks ass.
true but the last season he made his own
>>
>>530173
This just lets me know that it's stupider than I thought it was.

They literally tried to escape in Calabria.

See 5 in the map. But I "assume" they didn't know how to cross/build a navy, and finally opted to march north and into Spain or somewhere else.
>>
>Spartacus becomes King of Italy
>Bans slavery and founds america 2,000 years early
>Thracian religion becomes dominant
>>
>>530187
I started the 2nd (3rd?) season (after they escaped) when it aired but I couldn't stand the new direction, gave up after like two episodes.
Is it really worth trudging through?
>>
>>530213
definitely. it's pretty good, you gotta let characters adjust
>>
>>530200
They hired pirates to carry them.

the pirates took the money and left them there.
>>
>>530872
those pirates were cunts

i don't think it is conceivable that roman republic which never wavered as hannibal barca, one of the greatest generals of all time, sieged italy for 16 years would give in to some upstart thracian noble with a slave army

even if he did win and take over its impossible to guess what would happen

also that tv show is fucking cancer, genocide yourself you barbarian
>>
>>530929
>also that tv show is fucking cancer, genocide yourself you barbarian
what was wrong with it
>>
>>530939
I'm 10 mins in and this show blows so far.
>>
>>530965
that's it? 10 minutes? You must have some sort of ADD, just relax and enjoy it, you'll really get into it, it's just the start.
>>
>>530892
lesson learned though, don't pay pirates up front.
>>
>>530939
its historically inaccurate to the max, sex scene every 5 minutes, shaky cam combat every 10 minutes and terrible acting all around

its basically 300 the show : carcinogen edition
>>
>>530979
Go back and enjoy your Arrow or Flash then m8
>>
>>530981
i don't watch capeshit

man when i think about it most tv shows fucking suck, why do you normies watch them don't you have anything better to do?
>>
>>530965
first 3 episodes are really shitty, then it completely turns around and gets better. if you still don't like it by the end of S1, then no idea what to tell you
>>
>>530986
If you don't like tv you don't like tv, you can't fairly judge something if you don't like that kinda thing anyway. They made it interesting, it's fun and gripping. We're normies thats why we watch our shows and then discuss it with our friends.
>>
>>530991
Well season 2 is someone else too.

Gannicus! What a ledge.
>>
>>530969
Yeah sorry I don't like shit slow-mo action scenes followed by men shouting followed by shitty sex scene followed by bs prophecy, "hurr durr gods spoke to me in a dream" dialogue. Shit is off to a bad start man.
>>
>>531079
but thats how things were back then though. the start is only like that just watch the show dumbass
>>
>>530979
This.
>>531108
Gave up on it. Show is shit.
>>
>>531120
why is it shit? and how long did you last?
>>
>>531120
Not that anon, but I thought the first episode was total shit, but the rest of the series was entertaining.
>>
>>529414
it would have been aweesome if the slaves won
>>
>>534324

>Caesar getting ass raped by Crassus' son or someone like that

Was that really necessary?

Words fall from your mouth as shit from ass.

He was like the Ancient Romania equivalent of Big Boss; he wanted to establish his own Outer Heaven for gladiators and runaway slaves. At least that's how I like to see it
>>
>>530118
sex and blood and homoerotic shit

its absolute crap. unless you're into anything of what I said in a tv series.
Just dont expect any historical accuracy

the way everyone was so delusional thinking they were descendants of romans was annoying in this show
>>
>>538617
I think it accurately reflects what Italian Americans think desu
>>
>>538661
i dont live in america so i dont know, what are they like?
>>
>>538662
New York state and new Jersey are filled with Italians, and a lot of them are massive 'muh heritage' fags
>>
>>538678
but italians arent roman...
>>
>>538681
They like to think that they are descendants of them
>>
>>538703
they are tho

>>
>>538793
LOL
>>
>>538901
But every study says the exact opposite. Aside from Sicily Italy is pretty much the same as 2000 years ago. Shit even the south who changed hand every other week is still half greek half italic just like in roman times.
