I, Claudius Review

8 years, 1 month ago at Jan 12 2:06
Watching I, Claudius today...Initially feels a little dated. Initially. Give it five minutes and you are totally sucked in.

Some amazing performances are given by Brian Blessed and Derek Jacobi...However I really believe that John Hurt's portrayal of Gaius Caligula is one of the greatest examples of character acting in the last century. Caligula, an already facinating figure is pe... read more

Probably one of the benchmarks of the mini-series genre and one of the best British-produced shows in television history. Some of the younger actors have gone on to have lengthy and significant careers in film and TV. I watch it anytime it gets aired on TV.

Unequalled & unmissable.

A classic BBC television serial of an interpretation of life during the Roman dynastic era. Though it looks dated now the performances from so many notable actors of the day are electric. The writing is superb and for me Siân Phillips' performance as Livia is entrancing as she speaks her words first with just her eyes allowing us practically to read her mind. Such intelligence, fortitude and skil... read more

“A classic BBC television serial of an interpretation of life during the Roman dynastic era. Though it looks dated now the performances from so many notable actors of the day are electric. The writing is superb and for me Siân Phillips' performance as Livia is entrancing as she speaks her words first with just her eyes allowing us practically to read her mind. Such intelligence, fortitude and skill invested into the part that one can almost forgive her - she simply loved Rome more than anyone in it.

All the performances were terrific, many outstandingly so and the cast is all top-grade. Even Brian Blessed as Augustus whose giant heartiness begins about eight feet from his physical person manages to keep himself within frame "QUINTILIUS VARUS WHERE ARE MY EAGLES!?" he booms, to al” read more

“Watching I, Claudius today...Initially feels a little dated. Initially. Give it five minutes and you are totally sucked in.

Some amazing performances are given by Brian Blessed and Derek Jacobi...However I really believe that John Hurt's portrayal of Gaius Caligula is one of the greatest examples of character acting in the last century. Caligula, an already facinating figure is perfected by Hurt, portrayed as both a bloody tyrant and a lovable rogue. It's just a joy to watch.

Although some of Robert Grave's narrative is changed, it remains the same in essentials. A definite for any intelligent person who can maintain focus even without the presence of breasts or Adam Sandler (although the two are arguably the same). Plus a great story for anyone who cannot be bothere” read more
