As with the ground-breaking mini-series Spartacus – Blood and Sand, this six-part prequel is just as bloody and brutal, with a heady mix of profanity, nudity and sex, which in my book makes for top evening’s viewing.

Gods of the Arena was designed as a stop-gap solution when Spartacus star Andy Whitfield had to pull out of filming a second series to receive treatment for cancer. (Unfortunately, Whitfield recently lost his battle with his illness; the lead role has been recast and goes to fellow Antipodean actor, Liam McIntyre). However, what a brilliant ‘stop-gap’ it proved to be. By filling in the background of the rise of the House of Batiatus and his ludus; the deals, cheats, intrigues and murders he had to commit, it gave us more of an insight to mechanics needed climb the slippery pole of ancient Roman society. His ambition is achieved thanks to the sexually explosive setting of the macho and sweaty world of his gladiator’s physical exertions, their never ending dose of violence, homo and heterosexual lust and the ultimate desire to be the best. With the motto:  LIVE TO BECOME A GOD OR DIE TRYING

Packed with sexual tension and bloody battles sequences, the series features some of the biggest and most brutal spectacles the show has ever produced. Not to be outdone, the costume designers had a field day making sure the greasy, sweaty hunks had very little to wear but what they did wrap around their plentiful groins, emphasised why these men were regarded as gods once they entered the arena.
