Product Description

The House of Batiatus is on the rise, basking in the glow of its infamous champion Gannicus, whose skill with a sword is matched only by his thirst for wine and women. These are the times a young Batiatus has been waiting for. Poised to overthrow his father and take control, he'll freely betray anyone to ensure his gladiators are in the highest demand. And he'll have his loyal and calculating wife Lucretia by his side for every underhanded scheme, drawing on the brazen talents of her seductive friend Gaia when it counts. Together, they will stop at nothing to deceive the masses, seize power and bleed Capua dry in this audacious prequel to Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

Take the SPARTACUS series...go back a little in time...experience the turmoil that set the stage for the greatest revolt in history. There you have "Gods of the Arena". It suffers no loss in writing, acting, set/staging or any other factor. This series stands alone in all its glory.

So many revelations come to us while watching this series. Batiatus and Lucretia, while still rather despicable characters, display the human struggle to which we all fall prey. There are family squabbles Roman-style, inlaw situations, fertility issues, family business problems. Here we are enticed to feel some of the angst Batiatus has trying to be "the good son", to equal if not outdo his father's success. His marriage to Lucretia against his father's wishes is a thorn in his side. However, it is not his wife who causes him this pain. Lucretia while scheming, arrogant and sometimes cruel will support her man to the very end....and she does! Watching this family's dynamic is like watching a reality show today...mesmerising!

Perhaps, some wonder if the lack of the character of Spartacus himself would not weaken this series...absolutely not! In the footsteps of all those gladiators before and after him, Gannicus too takes up the sword. Excellently played by Dustin Clare, Gannicus gives us everything we hope for in a hero. He is physically awesome, easy on the eye and an in-depth, fully-rounded character in his own right. Gannicus is perhaps a conglomerate of all gladiators and in his plight we can follow that track on which they are proplelled by fate. To train, to fight, to live for the glory and blood and agony of the arena, that was the life of a gladiator. Few were given their freedom at the end of a glorious career.

What a great show, I can not wait until season 2 of Spartacus in 2012! If you like blood sex and violence in one package get this series. Spartacus Blood and sand in my opinion was better but this was a great series to keep people satisfied while they found a new actor for Spartacus.

This is an excellent series, very well made and acted. Not for the squeamish or prudish though. Very graphic sword fighting and full frontal nudity both male and.female. Very well written stories.

Been a fan of this from its inception. Have always had a fascination with Roman history and with gladiators as well. Great follow-up series after the lead actor was diagnosed with cancer and later passed (I think he has passed away) due to the cancer he had. Very graphic and violent as such to be expected with gladiatorial combat, and a great deal of sexuality, nudity and sex within this series. Overall a great purchase on sale and a welcome addition to my collection.

I used to stream this show online. Still, I loved it and it was my favorite. I loved it so much that I purchased all the seasons in blu-ray and by jupiter's cock, this show is incredible in blu-ray. A well deserved purchase!

By the way, Gannicus character is awesome.

I know this is the "beginning". Its not bad - lots of fight scenes in it and really tells the story from before Spartacus and how the other characters play out.

This is an amazing collection to get and high recommend. If you are a history buff and love the action, this gives it. From a female perspective, the men in loin cloths are quite nice as well.
