10 Questions for Spartacus' Steven S. DeKnight. "I come from the Joss Whedon camp, having worked on Buffy, Angel, and Dollhouse, and fully share his love and fascination for strong women. Moving forward I will continue to develop these kinds of roles..."
Spoilers in the Q&A for up to Episode 11 (out of 13).
Addresses the language and nudity, the types of sexuality portrayed, what he thinks of watchdog groups & those who would censor the series (take a guess), his comments on respecting the historical accuracy vs. needing to mold the show around an arc/arcs, plus interesting answers/details about a bunch more for his series Spartacus.
Yes, I shamelessly copy/pasted his response to Question 5 in a long-shot attempt to get more Whedon fans to try out this incredibly well-crafted series or give it another shot (especially with the mid-to-latter Season 1 episodes), since a lotta folks will only watch a show if it contains strong female characters or a subjective balance of both male and female actors. Fair enough. And I think maybe the impression was that it was only pure testosterone-drenched sex & violence after the first couple episodes, but the series turned out to be more than that, from what I saw (but then again, it's ancient Rome--there was a lot of unabashed sex and violence).
"Same sex relationships will continue to be presented in every season that I am associated with, along with a multi-racial cast."
How insane and tense were those last two episodes of Season 1...
