Watch Spartacus: Gods of the Arena

Taking you back into the olden days, where Romans were the ruling class and games involves fighting to the death. This series gives blood, guts, and honor a whole new meaning. You will also want to take a minute to find previous series, so that you will be able to understand the whole story of how Spartacus came to be a legend. Gods of the arena continues the series, and showcases how all the characters' lives are changed after the rebellion. The series changes between Spartacus, and how the slaves that are freed are forced to choose between fighting or fleeing.

During the series, viewers are also given the viewpoint of the Romans that are chasing the rebels. The plot takes a twist, when a character that was supposed to be dead is found alive. Believing that the Gods have spared her from a cruel fate, she is turned into a prophet, and is forced to calm the unrest that is brewing on the streets. However, she begins to regain her memory and reverts to manipulating people around her to get her goals. Fighting has always played a big part in this series, and Gods of the arena delivers on some of the best fighting scenes.

From the pits to the arena, viewers will be able to see every part of the Romans games in vivid detail. Honor is something that has been forgotten for fighters that are taking part in the pits, but the arena is a place where all gladiators dream to fight and die. Romans turn to a freed gladiator to capture Spartacus, but this plan backfires, and he ends up fighting with them at a crucial point in the series. He is not easily trusted, but the skill that he has is something that no one denies.

The story that this freed gladiator has is intertwined with another important character in the series, and after struggling with misunderstandings from a life that has been left behind is finally forgiven. Most people would like to have this part of the series extended, but the series does a wonderful job to finish the story of Spartacus, and give viewers the closure of the story. There might be another series after this season has ended, but it remains to be seen if another will be produced.
