Well, who watched it and what did you think?

Spoiler for Hiden:
I liked it. They did seem to ramp up the sex scenes though, and it seemed a little unnecessary. But the characters remain interesting, and there's another level of depth trying to figure out how the 'younger' characters tied in to Blood and Sand. Are there only 6 episodes though? Man, sucks if it's true.

that's my plan, although the producers say it's enough of a stand alone mini-series that anyone can jump in  luckily I should have the first season done by the time the second episode hits next week.

Very good opening episode! If you liked the last spartacus season youll definitely like this one. And if thats not enough, you at least get to see Xenas tits!

Definitely seemed to ramp the sex up...even for Spartacus. Can't remember any girl on girl from the first season. Also the combat seemed diffrent in not quite the 300 style but "turned up to 11" I remember it as.

Added it to my Netflix Instant Queue (which is awesome because I don't have Starz anymore). I liked it. Then again, I'm a sucker for origin stories. It's funny watching Crixus being treated like a newbie scrub. We should start a "Jupiter's Cock Counter" to count the frequency of when it's used. I counted 2 in the first episode. Oenomaus's wife is a hot piece for sure.

They might as well call this "Opposite Day" since everything is the opposite of Season One. The two gladiator owners are friends, the champion is a noob, the badass trainer is just a former fighter trying to get back in the ring, and the wife thinks gladiators are filthy. The tongue in cheek irony is a bit excessive.

Wifey and I just caught the first episode. The writing was pretty good. I liked watching Hannah's acting, once again. The end of the episode was brutal as hell! I can't wait to see how this season ramps up. The sex and violence were way over the top - thank goodness.

I didn't realize that Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon (both of Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog) wrote the 2nd episode and co-produced the 1st one.

Getting better!

I don't watch a lot of TV but I was hooked to the first season of Spartacus, and Gods of the Arena is just as good.. my only disappointment is that come this friday, we'll already be half way through the season! (And then have to wait a year for the "real" season 2!)

As already mentioned here, if you don't have Starz, Netflix has both Spartacus season 1 and gods of the arena on instant play.. every episode if you need to catch up on it.

So far, the theme seems to be every time someone is having sex, violence must be happening at the same time.

True, but they didn't mix the two every time sex was shown in the original.  The first two episodes of this one, every sex scene is a montage intermixed with fighting.

I don't recall any violence taking place during the three way at the end of episode 2.

After watching episode 3 I can't believe how true this is. They completely turned all the characters on their head. If this happened years before season 1 then ok, but I think its supposed to lead right into it yes?

This series has been as much about the rise of Crixus as it is the rise of Batiatus. It looks pretty likely they're setting up a possible Crixus vs Gannicus showdown.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Somehow Gannicus having boned Oenemaeous' (sp?) wife is going to play a large in Gannicus' downfall. I don't think Oenemaeous will kill him but it could be that Gannicus is too guilt racked to train or fight hard and so loses his edge. Most likely Crixus kills him in the arena.

I doubt it but...not sure what direction they will take season 3 but maybe Gannicus earns his freedom somehow and Sparty links up with him for a post rebellion party. If they like a character maybe they bring them over into the next one.

I hope they bring Gannikus back...I've really liked his character so far.

I am also really enjoying the relationship between Battiartus and Solonius. Great hook to keep me interested.

How could Gannicus come back?  He was completely absent the entire first season and he's currently the Champion of Capua.  There's only one conclusion: EL MUERTE at the hands of Crixus.
