The life of Spartacus, the gladiator who lead a rebellion against the Romans. From his time as an ally of the Romans, to his betrayal and becoming a gladiator, to the rebellion he leads and its ultimate outcome.
Water is a very important theme throughout the series: the House of Batiatus was in debt (or was dry) during Crixus' run as champion but became wealthy when Spartacus took up the mantle after his victory ended the drought; and several characters die during a rainstorm or when one is approaching.
Gannicus seeks to best you.
Spartacus: Gladiators seek to best all. It's the only way to survive in the arena.
In several episodes the use of the letter U, for example under the bust that Batiatus made for Spartacus, was seen. The letter U in Latin wasn't used in place of V as consonant until the Middle ages.
During the series run, each episode has shots from the season as the background while the credits roll. The pictures in the background vary depending on the season. The exception to this being the series finale where a montage of the characters are displayed.
