You can find a fantastic, low priced deal on the entire first season of Spartacus: Blood and Sand at Amazon. The DVD copy has many extras as well so I recommend buying it.
Alternatively, you can stream it through Amazon’s Instant Video service and pay per episode if desired. However, the DVD allows you to have the bonus features mentioned.
Buy Spartacus: Blood and Sand season 1 while the price is still low!

As mentioned in previous posts, Andy Whitfield unfortunately was diagnosed with cancer and had to step down from his role as Spartacus.
This role is being replaced, however, by Liam McIntyre. Nobody will be able to replace Andy, but hopefully Liam will be able to help fill in the void.
Starz shall continue with the series obviously and I’m sure it will be just as fantastic as before despite this.
Pictured to the right is Liam Mcintyre. You can now call him Spartacus 2.0 though!
Greetings everyone! The new season premieres on January 21 at 10:00PM ET/PT via the Starz network. It promises to be a great follow up to Spartacus: Blood and Sand, and will be a very nice adventure. You’ll see many familiar faces, as well as many new ones in this upcoming season. Here’s the official word on it:
The House of Batiatus is on the rise, basking in the glow of its infamous champion Gannicus, whose skill with a sword is matched only by his thirst for wine and women. These are the times a young Batiatus has been waiting for. Poised to overthrow his father and take control, he’ll freely betray anyone to ensure his gladiators are in the highest demand. And he’ll have his loyal and calculating wife Lucretia by his side for every underhanded scheme, drawing on the brazen talents of her seductive friend Gaia when it counts. Together, they will stop at nothing to deceive the masses, seize power, and bleed Capua dry in this audacious prequel to “Spartacus: Blood and Sand.”
Premiering, January 21 “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena,” the highly anticipated prequel to “Spartacus: Blood and Sand,” tells the story of the original Champion of the House of Batiatus. Joining returning stars, John Hannah (The Mummy, Four Weddings and A Funeral) as Batiatus, Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior Princess”) as Lucretia and Peter Mensah (300, The Incredible Hulk) as Oenomaus, will be additional cast members Dustin Clare (“Underbelly”) as Gannicus, Jaime Murray (“Hu$tle”) as Gaia and Marisa Ramirez (“General Hospital”) as Melitta.
I personally cannot wait to watch this, and I’m sure many of you share that sentiment.
The second season of Spartacus will be called Gods of the Arena. It’s a prequel to Spartacus: Blood and Sand — and should be around six (6) episodes long. I’m very much looking forward to it myself, as I’m sure the rest of you are. We are still awaiting a release date.
Before Spartacus struck down his first opponent in the arena, there were many gladiators who passed though the gates onto the sand. “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena,” the highly anticipated prequel to Starz’ hit series “Spartacus: Blood and Sand,” tells the story of the original Champion of the House of Batiatus: Gannicus (Dustin Clare) in a more ruthless time before Spartacus’ arrival where honor was just finding it’s way into the arena. The new series adds to the cast Jaime Murray as Capua’s sexy social climber Gaia and Marisa Ramirez as Melitta, a beautiful slave who must face the ultimate decision of the heart. Jeffrey Thomas plays Batiatus’s father Titus, the traditional and cautious Lanista, head of the Ludus. They join returning cast members John Hannah (Quintus Batiatus), Lucy Lawless (Lucretia), Peter Mensah (Oenomaus, before he becomes Doctore, the gladiator trainer) and Manu Bennett (Crixus).

Below is a teaser / trailer of the upcoming season 2, Spartacus: Gods of the Arena–
Great news! The role of Spartacus, as played previously by Andy Whitfield before he was diagnosed with cancer, will be recasted. This is good news because the alternative to a recast was the cancellation of the show. While I cannot imagine any other actor playing this character, it’s good to know that the show will go on. On behalf of all the Spartacus: Blood and Sand fans, we wish you the best Andy Whitfield.
Andy Whitfield, the actor who plays Spartacus, unfortunately has been dealing with cancer throughout his time on the show. While it was treated earlier on and thought to have been successfully removed, it turns out it was not as successful as the doctors thought. The beloved show may very well end now for good. Whether or not a recast will occur is just conjecture.
Though not particularly related to the show Spartacus: Blood and Sand, I thought I’d alert those who are interested in the game Borderlands that the new DLC is coming out soon called Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution. It promises to be very fun. Check it out.
Not everyone has the Starz Network station on their satellite or cable TVs. Currently, there’s a $25 discount available for those interested in purchasing access to the Starz Network.
