'Spartacus" is this year's most notorious flesh-and-blood series.
And you won't have to wait long for that; the flesh arrives six minutes into the first of the Starz drama's 13 episodes, which premiered last night.
In the scene, Thracian he-man Spartacus, played by Welsh-born actor Andy Whitfield, is making love to his wife.
The camera lovingly pans down their writhing naked bodies. Sex scenes, in fact, come at regular intervals in the series premiere, with full-frontal female nudity 18 minutes into the one-hour episode.
In the drama, Spartacus becomes enslaved by the Capuan army and trains to be a gladiator in a school run by the sex-starved Lucretia, played by Lucy Lawless, so memorable from "Xena, Warrior Princess."
