New York Times Review of ‘Spartacus: Gods of the Arena’

Posted on January 20th, 2011 by

It’s back. The STARZ gladiatorial drama where dialogue has been known to appear between acts of sex and violence has returned for a short prequel series about the ludus of Battiatus before the arrival of Spartacus. The actor playing the title character had to take a temporary leave from the series to undergo cancer treatment.  The prequel series was decided upon to keep the narrative going during his absence.

(small spoiler alert here)

For viewers of the first season, it will be a welcome opportunity to see again some of the characters liquidated in the general massacre of everybody near and far in the season finale. The link is here.
