Sad as we were to see 'Spartacus' bite the sand earlier this year, we took great comfort in both the possibility of a spin-off and series creator Steven S. DeKnight's interstellar war drama 'Incursion' potentially moving forward at Starz. Now, reports have emerged suggesting DeKnight's 'Incursion' has cooled in the pre-production phase, but does that mean Starz will pass on the series?

We’re now four episodes in on ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ and the show has proved that it’s definitely worth watching. Though it fits into the rough mold of most pay-cable shows by featuring action and a soupcon of nudity, Tom Riley's Leonardo Da Vinci is a fascinating character, and the season (which is now half over) is building well. Tonight's episode "The Magician" continues the adventure and intrigue.

Da Vinci’s Demons’ has, so far, promised a lot and mostly delivered on the premise of Leonardo Da Vinci as fifteenth century bad-ass. He’s smart, he gets all the chicks, he can fight, and yet because he’s Leonardo Da Vinci, he’s still pretty likeable. And with an eight episode order for the first season, it’s likely the series is working much more as a mini-series than your standard issue episodic show, as each episode so far has done a good job of moving the ball forward. Tonight’s episode “The Prisoner” is more episodic than the previous episodes, but still engaging.

Spartacus: War of the Damned’ makes a last stand with its tenth and final episode of the farewell season “Victory,” as Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) leads the rebels into ultimate battle against Crassus (Simon Merrells) and his legions, buying enough time for the remaining slaves to escape to freedom.

Will the rebel armies triumph over Rome, or go down in history as a failed slave uprising?
