    Sweat, bulging muscles, men, girls, men vs men, men staring at men, men staring at women, bad guys, good guys, men vs women, women vs women, women vs men, men vs animals, guys loving gals, guys loving guys, gals loving gals, bulging bulges, poking and proding by various and asundry instruments, uniforms, shiny objects, great sets... interiors, exteriors, and other soft things that come in sets, did I mention men and women in no or few clothes? Sharp pointed objects, dull blunt objects, loud music, grunts, severed heads, and action galore. Did I mention decadent sweaty tatted men? Who needs dialog when you have all that? Who could ask for more in one series? I must admit I missed the male lead in the original series (may he rest in peace bless his soul) but the new guy did a bang up job. Great series.

    This is one of my top 5 favorite TV series that has ever happened. Everything from cast, story, background imagery, actors, musical scores, and the history that it's based on is amazing. The level of commitment made to make this show is astounding and paid off amazingly well. I encourage everybody, watch the whole SPARTACUS series! I added the other three seasons. The release order is Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Spartacus: Gods of The Arena, Spartacus: Vengeance, and last Spartacus: War of The Damned. But Chronological order is Gods of The Arena, Blood and Sand, Vengeance, and War of The Damned. ENJOY!

    This DVD set was produced in 2011 after the original season one "Blood and Sand" came out in 2010. It is a Prequel to Blood and Sand meaning it takes place before, and is a shorter 6 episodes only (as compared to 13 episodes for Blood and Sand). You will learn the background story of this series which actually continued in 2012 with "Vengeance" and finally in 2013 with "War of the Damned". I would recommend obtaining this set if you plan to complete your collection of the Spartacus series.

    My friends were ranting and raving when this first came out on Starz. I thought it was going to be a poor copy of the film 300. Boy was I wrong!!! Gods of the Arena is the prequel to the 1st season, allowing the creators some time for the orignal Spartacus actor to deal with his losing battle with cancer. This is on par with the first season (brings back some key actors/roles). Get the series and enjoy it... it's a great bargin for the hours of entertanment it provides.

    As a six episode prequel, I debated whether to buy this or not, but I'm glad I did. While Spartacus himself is absent, it still features some great drama, and the usual violence and nudity the series is known for. John Hannah, one of the best things about the first season, is given more opportunity to scheme and plot with his wife played by Lucy Lawless, as well as the backstories to characters who will later play a big role, this is definitely a not-miss.

    I had watch seasons 1 and 2 before watching this one. I didn't realize this was the start of something spectaular. This is a must have to your collection. The espisodes are awesome! The only thing I didn't like is there were very few espisodes compared to season 1. There is a little disconnect between this one and season 1, due to the fact that they don't show Crixus rise or becoming the Champion of Capua. I still like this show all of it.

    Season 2 which although a prequel to season 1 must still be watched after completing the first season. I was very pleased with what the show creators came up with to bridge the gap of a real life tragedy and keep the show going for all of us who love what was just fantastic work by Andy Whitfield and everyone involved in this terrific show. The only reason the overall rating is 4 stars & not 5 is because of the shortened season.

    While waiting for the lead actor from the first season to recover from cancer, this "prequel" tells the story of the rise of Batiatus' ludus. Though the first season started off slow in regards to the acting, no such problem exists with this season. The new character are fantastic, the those returning from the first season continue to shine. It is a shame the "prequel" season only last a year before returning to the main plot.
