      My wife and I stumbled into watching this series on Stars. I did not know much about Spartacus. The whole series is a great intrepretation of what has been documented in history. The character development and strory are very compelling. You will want more and more! I loved it so much, I had to buy it! Gods of the Arena is actually the 2nd season, but goes back in time before Spartacus arives. The actor that played Spartacus sadly was being treated for cancer during this season, thus the prequel. He ultimately died and a new actor came in to pick up the story where it left off. It is a little wierd of a transition at first and then you are sucked right back in to the story and the characters. One of the best series I have seen and I usually pick winners - Breaking Bad, The Wire, Game of Thrones, The White Queen, etc! Watch it, you'll love it! I am wondering what the watching experience would be to watch Gods of the Arena 1st, opposed to 2nd as it was originally played. I think it might actually be better, but I can not say for sure! Either way, you will not be dissapointed!

      Ask why before you buy

      I bought this and the First Season of Sparticus: Blood and Sand because they were on sale for much less than market, thinking I'd get around to watching them eventually. Well I did finally and the First Season ends rather dramatically, like "this is the End and that's it" kind of ending. Gods of the Arena is not what I expected - I expected more story to occur in a linear fashion after Season 1. The reviews seemed to call this a Season 2 for all intents and purposes, but except for the first "episode" this is all "History" before Sparticus came along. I wanted to find out what happens next, not what happened leading up to Season 1. This resembles the "300" and movies like it where there's plenty of blood and slicing off of human pieces, but unless you just want to see naked women - and there's a bit of that - I would pass on this one.

      Spartacus: blood and sand is one of my favorite tv series of all time, so when Gods of the Arena came out I had to watch it. I really like this prequel season, and I want to clarify from the one reviewer that the reason gods of the arena didn't pick up where blood and sand left off is bc Andy Whitfield, the actor who plays Spartacus in the first season, was diagnosed with cancer and starz had to find a way to keep fans happy while giving Andy time to rest and be with his family. That is why season 3 has a different actor, bc unfortunately Andy Whitfield passed away. So yes this is a prequel series to blood and sand but I enjoyed it just as much.

      A fan of the film Gladiator should enjoy this series. This is acutally a prequel to Spartacus: Blood and Sand but released after that season. If you watch this (Gods of the Arena) first and then Blood and Sand it will make more sense. Anywho, simple story line complicated with the major backstabbings, betrayals, and overall sexy violence throughout. Corny dialogues at times, but fun to quote! Also, friggin Lucy Lawless aka Xena the warrior princess is smoking hot in this series!

      I got into this series when they put "Blood and Sand" on Netflix instant a couple years ago. This prequel season really helps to develop several of the main characters from "Blood and Sand." The background stories for Oenomaus and Crixus (especially the animosity between Crixus and Ashur from "Blood and Sand") really drive this short prequel series.

      Spartacus its a great show no matter what season you're watching, and gods of the arena in my opinion it's the second best season (the best one being the last) it tells you how everything started and gives you a better idea to understand the entire Spartacus plot although it's the second session of the show

      This movie gives you a close hand look at a Roman gladiator and what they go through to survive and fight in the arena. This is a personal story of one such man and his daily life and death stuggle. Plenty of blood and gore to go around.

      I missed this when it showed on Starz, but I caught up through my on demand. I can't believe I missed this series the first time around...IT'S AMAZING! Storylines are strong, acting is strong, and the cinematagrophy/sets are superb.
