Erin Cummings (Sura) in S1 DVD Extra - Oh, Those Randy Romans:
This show will probably appeal more to women than it will to men! All these men covered in dirt and sweat and glistening and wearing nothing but these loincloths and sword-fighting — it is the most insane display of male testosterone-driven masculinity. It’s very exciting!
There are some really beautiful love scenes that are not gratuitously shot. They’re scenes that a woman can watch and appreciate and say, “You know what, that’s a beautiful scenario. I would like to be that woman; I would like to be going through that experience with a man who looks at me and loves me and touches me and kisses me in that way.”
