"These Are The Words Of...."

2 years, 11 months ago at Aug 27 20:05
Well, it was an expensive, artsy, history-y show that ran for two seasons before getting cancelled, but it would have been great if it had gone for 12 or 20 or something, because everybody who watched it was so *clever*, you know.

*But*, aside from all of that crap, it actually was a pretty decent show, actually, I think. I mean, you'd be kindof an ass about it if you just glossed ... read more

"Amazing immersive TV experience - ancient Rome is transformed from the crumbling stones that remain as tourist attractions today into a vibrant, thriving, dangerous city. Their customs, clothes, colors, and cunning plots are all on display, convincingly bringing the brutal realities of that time to screen. In fact the attention to detail and opulence of the costuming and set construction ultimately proved far too costly, leading to cancellation after 2 seasons. Anyone with an interest in Roma"

*But*, aside from all of that crap, it actually was a pretty decent show, actually, I think. I mean, you'd be kindof an ass about it if you just glossed over the characters and only cared about it for the witty historical nonsense, you know, *but*....

I don't know; it's hard to explain how my opinions of things have changed....

"The finest historical drama I've had the pleasure to watch, "Rome" covers the rise and fall of Julius Ceasar, the descent of the Roman republic into a totalitarian state, and the rise of Emperor Octavian. This series had an assortment of true historical characters and fictional ones, but they were all played to perfection. Sadly, this epic drama ended after only two seasons due to budget constraints, but what an excellent ride it was!"

Sight Unseen, But That Didn't Stop me! (20 tv items)

"I paid the most for any single DVD set to date when I shelled out $16.58 for the first season of Rome - which means I *really* wanted to see it! I'm fascinated by Roman history and this series truly transports me back 2000 years with its impeccable detail and lavish production, to such a degree that it comes as no surprise that only two seasons could be filmed because of the exorbitant operating costs! I soon snapped up the second DVD set for $13 to absorb every inch of this extraordinary achi"

" What is it about? In this British costume drama, the turbulent transition from Roman republic to autocratic empire, which changed world history through civil war and wars of conquest, is sketched both from the aristocratic viewpoint of Julius Caesar, his family, his adopted successor Octavian Augustus, and their political allies and adversaries, and from the politically naive viewpoint of a few ordinary Romans, notably the soldiers Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo and their families.

"There were supposed to be at least 4 seasons. No wonder they had to speed up everything in the 2nd (and last!) season."
