A must have for Spartacus: Blood and Sand fans,
This review is from: Spartacus - Gods Of The Arena [DVD] (DVD)
This series was created due to Andy Whitfield/Spartacus becoming ill and unable to film the next season of Spartacus. This story tells us how the house of Batiatus, the roman who eventually buys Spartacus, propels his gladiators to the main events arena in Capua. The six part series tells the story of Crixus (who becomes a champion) and the champion who teaches him to be one. I was surprised in both this series and Spartacus by the choice of Lucy Lawless for the female lead, but it was a pleasant surprise ( except for the accent now and again). John Hannah excells in both this series and Spartacus, so much so that you can't tell whether he really is the psycho he portrays. I highly recommend this 6 part series.
