FACEBOOK: Gladiators

Watching the Hercules TLJ season one episode ‘Gladiator’ is vastly more amusing in a post-Spartacus era than when it originally aired two decades ago, what with Tony Todd as a Crixus-Oenameus hybrid and Alison Bruce as proto-Lucretia. And I keep cracking up at the sight of Jeffery Thomas (Titus Lentulus Batiatus) in the role of the thuggish prison guard.

The master himself (Rob Tapert) even makes a cameo among the spectators, which I don’t recall him ever doing for Spartacus — though Michael Hurst did put in a quick appearance at the end of season 2 as javelin fodder.
