The idea for the prequel, came from a conversation that creator Steven S. DeKnight had with actor John Hannah. Hannah's character had been killed off in the first season, but Hannah enjoyed working on the show so much that he told DeKnight he'd be more than willing to continue working with it somehow. As it was, production of the second season was on hold due to the declining health of star actor Andy Whitfield. So DeKnight's idea to shoot a prequel to season one was the ideal way to continue working with John Hannah and give audience members something to "feast on" until season two could go into production.

What's wrong with enjoying in something shallow? This Gods of the Arena is unplanned for and is meant only to bridge till they do the second season, for tragic causes... Only thing annoying enough to take the 10th star is that slaves are speaking deep thoughts in short sentences and wise manner... even more so than their masters! I like the brutality in all the fights, sex and lies! That's probably how ancient societies were, specially Rome. I truly cannot wait to see next season, and this one, however different from the first, is just a way to keep us interested in the series. So, do not be too picky of it's quality. I wanted to keep this review shorter but I could not, since I like to support easy watching series as I find it much more satisfying to ease my mind by watching TV than to watch something of what I will think next two days.
