Friday, January 21 - 'Spartacus' returns with 'Gods of the Arena'
"Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" (Starz) Friday, January 21
We both gave up on season one of "Spartacus" (then subtitled "Blood & Sand") after four episodes or so. Other critical-type friends insist it got vastly better as that season moved along, but we don't have the time or patience to dive back in. But with star Andy Whitfield unfortunately sidelined by his fight with cancer, the new batch of episodes - a prequel mini-series starring Dustin Claire as a gladiator training in an earlier version of the house of Batiatus (John Hannah) - seems like enough of a clean slate that one of us might try it again.
