    So what's the point of having a long drawn out dramatic moment while we wait to hear if Crixus lives or dies when we know he lives since this is a prequel?

    I bet it will be great for those who stored up all the Blood and Sand episodes and haven't got into them yet. They can watch these first.

    Now who would have had the forethought to not watch blood and sand because they knew a prequel was coming out? :lol:

    It's pretty simple, if you don't like prequels then don't watch them.

    True, but I was wondering if Gannicus was going to live.

    Well yeah, you don't know if he does or not but the scene I was referring to was the one where Gannicus and Crixus fought and Gannicus clearly won and had his sword to Crixus' throat and Gaia decided whether Crixus lived or died. They made it this long dramatic moment where she decided. It didn't need to be that overly dramatic, we knew what her choice would be.

    Well sure. I see your point that there was no tension to any viewer of B&S once Gaia needed to make a decision regarding Crixus. However I don't remember it being as drawn out as you recall.

    It was easily 30 seconds to a minute. There was a long pause when the choice was given to Gaia. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't ruin the show but it was a wasted dramatic pause.

    ok, Hey if it was really that long, you could always hit the 30secskip button.:)

    The only reason to watch that I suppose is to see exactly how it plays out, beyond the prerequisite 'thumbs up'.

    Anyone know if they are going to repeat these episodes and when? I missed the first few episodes, and would like to start at the beginning. An episode guide by date would be helpful. TIA.

    Aren't they all On Demand? Episode guide @ tv.com contains spoilers. If you haven't seen the episodes, don't read the descriptions. It also doesn't talk about repeats.http://www.tv.com/spartacus-gods-of...s: Gods of the Arena&tag=search_results;eps;4
