I think that the Spartacus character was the worst thing about the first season. Stereotypical good guy with little personality so Whitfield didn't really have anything to work with.
I only saw 3-4 episodes of the following season though (not the prequel one, that one I saw all of) so I can't really say much about the switch, but it didn't feel worse for me.
