The majority of the killed Romans are commoners, not nobles; and the audience is supposed to cheer for the heroes butchering those unlucky guys?

Regarding double standards, the rebels obviously committed many atrocious acts as well.
When a Roman commits a crime, he is evil. When a slave commits a crime, it's revenge so it's okay. Right?
i remember most of the "common" romans cheering at the death in the arena and they all happily threw stones at that poor bastard at the start of this series

That's true. The only good Romans i saw were the slaves, poor nobles or Spartacus love interest in the final season who called out on the way his men killed innocents whose only crime were being a Roman citizen.

What i didn't like was the majority of the Roman nobles were a bunch of upstart jerks who couldn't just shut up when it was right and kept saying things that only got them into more trouble.(eg.Roman A says his slave is a strong warrior. Roman B says his slave is much stronger than Roman A's. Roman A counters Roman B is extravaganting and his slave is just really weak like him. Roman B then counter his Slave is better in everything, including pleasing Roman A's wife. Cue feud!)

And this season most of the rebels cheered at the death of the Roman citizens as they forced them to fight in the streets. I don't think that scene was unintentional

Just saw the last episode. I thought it was poorly done due to the amount of CGI or w/e they used, but overall, the plot of that specific episode was pretty good and fell somewhat in line with the old Sparatcus retells.

Btw, can someone explain to me what happened to Mira (played by Katrina Law; Spartacus' 1st love after his wife) during the first 2 seasons? I keep searching around for what happened to her in the 3rd season but she just "disappeared"

Probably my favorite female love interest if she was compared to Mira, her end seemed inevitable after Spartacus claimed that he had given all of the love he could to her. However it wasn't enough.

Spoiler for Mira's Fate:
