Spartacus Gods Of The Arena

January 22, 2011 by Post Team 

Spartacus Gods Of The Arena, The mini-series of six episodes has been designed as a stopgap when Spartacus star Andy Whitfield had to pull out of filming a second season to receive cancer treatment. (Unfortunately, Whitfield finally had to resign from the series, and the role has since been revised.) Make a series Spartacus is not a function of Spartacus sounds like a futile exercise, like writing a mystery about the Hardy Boys Hardys’ best friend Chet, or make a movie without Jason Bourne Jason Bourne. To make matters worse, the mini-series is a prequel; a narrative form that lends itself especially hard wheel turns. So it was a pleasure to see that the gods of the first Arena was also surprisingly pleasant one hour of television.

Whitfield is sorely lacking, and without him at center, I’m not sure that this mini-series can never really be more than a well-produced disorder. But it’s a beautiful mess. Without the seriousness of the slave revolt of Spartacus scenario, manufacturers of Spartacus seem willing to indulge their basest instincts of B-movie. So the first hour was wall to wall with fight sequences more cartoonishly over-skull rampant nudity of both sexes, and quite comically elaborate swearing to fulfill a playground in grade five. The plot follows a much younger Batiatus (John Hannah) and Lucretia (Lucy Lawless) as they try to take their stable of gladiators in the highest ranks. Simultaneous targeting of “physical exertion and Batiatus” the back room dealmaking gladiator Spartacus felt more than ever as the bloodiest of sports television show ever. (This is essentially Any Given Sunday, except more realistic.)

With the return Spartacus star Peter Mensah and Manu Bennett, Gods of the Arena features some delightful new characters. I do not know who I like more: Gannicus Dustin Clare, a champion gladiator with tastes too which narrowly survived a street fight blindfolded, or Gaia Jaime Murray, a social climber who spent the first hour seduce Lucretia (lsbns (trio alert!) sex alert!) and teach him all the joys of opium. I am also intrigued to see more “Melitta, who plays Oenomaus” Marisa Ramirez previously invisible wife. (We can assume that something terrible will happen to him.)

Since the Gods of the Arena is going to last six hours, and since we already know that some characters will not come out alive, he could do for entertainment hectic. Spartacus fans, did you enjoy the arena gods? Did you like the new characters? Or is it just a distraction mini-series until the story really continues in Season 2?

Miniseries prequel Starz, “Spartacus: Gods of the arena is on steroids visually.

More meat, both in smooth flesh poses and declining gushing purple – as beheading, disemboweled, the artery of the neck-slicing graph is slow-mo – so that every nerve and sinew is displayed for your love pleasure vicariously. It makes us all part Coliseum crowd, watching the spectacle of ancient Rome and its empire unfold in HD.

Spartacus: Gods Arena “stars Dustin Clare, John Hannah, Lucy Lawless, Peter Mensah, Manu Bennett, and Jaime Murray. It will air on Starz January 21, 2011 at 10 ET / PT, 9 CST.

Breasts abound and Merkin, sufficiency time gay Gladiator occurs Barca (Antonio Te Maioho living in the prologue) is a plant lover’s beefy on him at a powwow ludus in a scene for the first episode.

The show has devoted a large gay following and they appreciate the show tries to weave stories gay as a matter of chance-fact, just the way it was back then.

Starz began Spartacus: Blood & Sand “a year ago to Boffo ratings through the roof for the network. Even before its inception, Starz has announced a second season. Then came the shock of new stars Andy Whitfield non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer, and its first round of treatment. The network scrambled and had the idea of prequel, and then more bad news on cancer treatment Andy is not quite the work resurfaced. The network, with the blessing of Whitfield, threw a new Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) to the chagrin of diehard fans.

“Gods” tells the story of Batiatus (John Hannah) and his wife intriguing, Lucretia (Lucy Lawless) as the central characters, who have “good” Solonius (Craig Walsh-Wrightson), Asher (Nick Tarabay) and a pre – “Doctor” Peter Mensah as Oenomaus – which is the juice of this series – with them to ludus.

Oenomaus Mensah is a gladiator, not a whip cracker, we met in the season, and he plays this role with lightness and happiness doctore absent in the role we’ve met him. His Oenomaus has conjugal visits with his female slave, it is clearly in love with her and happy.

Also good to see Asher (Nick Tarabay) restored as a vital part in the gladiator training, and we see the beginning of his bitter hatred Crixus, born of their first encounter less-than-optimal. Tarabay is a convincing actor and he, along with Bennett and Mensah, there are graces saving for me in a series noticeably absent from the talents and Viva Bianca Whitfield (Ilithyia).
