  • Great Prequel to "Spartacus: Blood and Sand"

    9.5
    If you liked "Spartacus: Blood and Sand", there's no way you won't enjoy this one! This short series was a way the producers found to take advantage of the success of the original one, while the actor Andy Whitefield (Spartacus) was fighting a battle against cancer (which, unfortunately, he eventually lost). It takes place before the arriving of Spartacus and it shows the rise of the House of Batiatus with its star gladiator Gannicus. It's nicely written since it tells a bit of every major character's story (Crixus, Doctore, Solanius, Batiatus and Lucretia). All the elements that made Blood and Sand highly entertaining are also here: intrigue, action, violence, sex and great performances! If you haven't seen any of the seasons and want to give these gladiators a try, you should definitely watch Gods of the Arena after Blood and Sand, since there's a scene in the end that gives away the finale of its predecessor - a very nice touch, by the way.
