It’ saddens the cock to know that the Sam Raimi-produced gladiator soap “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena” has already reached its midpoint. The six-part prequel series to Starz’ runaway hit “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” has provided the stylized gore, raunchy sleaze, and quotable vulgarities (”Words fall from your mouth like shit from ass”) that “Spartacus” fans have come to love.
Of course, the drama is pretty damn good too. Last week’s episode “Paterfamilias” introduced Batiatus’ (John Hannah) sour-pus father Titus (Jeffrey Thomas), played up gladiator champ Gannicus’ (Dustin Clare) guilt over bedding Oenomaus’ (Peter Mensah) wife Melitta (Marissa Ramirez), and saw Crixus (Manu Bennett) earn the mark of the brotherhood by slaughtering Barca’s (Antonio Te Maioha) butt-buddy in the arena.
But, the show’s most compelling reveal came early when socialite Gaia (Jaime Murray) stripped off her gown to pour wine down her breasts and onto her bush during a three-way romp with Batiatus and Lucretia (Lucy Lawless). Hot as it was, slave girl Diona (Jessica Grace Smith) scored the episode’s most scandalous fuck scene: a simultaneous deflowering of ass and vajayjay via double penetration.
“Spartacus: Gods of the Arena” follows Batiatus and his wife Lucretia as they strive for power and influence over the city of Capua. The show debuted to 1.9 million viewers on Jan 21.
