I watched this show years ago, and it honestly was one of my favorite TV shows, ever. Years has passed, and it's now 2020, and I was reminded of this TV show again recently. I don't have Starz or any app that allows me to watch this show, so I came to Google Play to see if it's available here. The cost was pricey for the first season, but I didn't care. I wanted to watch this show again. And it was just as good if not better than the first time I watched it. This show is EXTREMELY underrated.

Best series in tv history in my opinion. W/ Blood and sand being the BEST season. The acting is superb and Andy's performance being the best I've seen any actor give in a VERY VERY long time. If u haven't seen this series and dont mind lots of blood, sex, cussing, violence and nudity then PLEASE watch this series. You'll fall in love w/ it and Andy. RIP Andy. Our true bringer of rain

When the show first aired on Starz, I went in curious not sure what to expect. Well, from the first episode you get your money's worth and much more. The story is very well told, the acting is phenomenal, the dialogue takes some getting used to but definitely leaves you satisfied with the authenticity. The amount of gore sometimes might be a bit much for some (not I), but the amount of eye candy more than makes up for it. All 4 seasons are magnificent and if your a fan of TV/movies, is a must watch and own.
