Description

Every city has its secrets. HBO presents Season 1 of this epic series about generals and soldiers, masters and slaves, husbands and wives — all entwined in the furious historical events that saw the death of a republic and the birth of an empire. The season begins in 52 B.C. as Gaius Julius Caesar completes his quest of Gaul after eight years of war and prepares to return with his army to Rome. But while Caesar's self-interested niece Atia and long-lost paramour Servilia anxiously await his return, the ruling patricians despair that Caesar's homecoming will disrupt the status quo. As Caesar's legions move closer to Rome, allegiances are put to the test for both soldiers and civilians — and the escalating tensions climax with a full-scale conflict destined to change history. The ensemble cast includes Kevin McKidd, Ray Stevenson, Polly Walker, Kenneth Cranham, Tobias Menzies, James Purefoy, and Ciarán Hinds.

Best Series Ever.

This is an incredible series. Not to be missed. Acting, writing, direction and sets are superb.

The Fall of HollyRome

ROME is easily the most believable re-creation of life in ancient Rome that I have ever seen. Gone is the idealistic “Hollywood Rome” of colossal marble structures and white togas. Instead, ROME brings us a grimy city filled with gangs, slavery and bitter political rivalries. This series truly is a must see. The only real disappointment is that it is so short (only two seasons) but what there is is thoroughly enjoyable. The stories and characters are well crafted, the acting is top notch (especially from actors Kevin McKidd and Ray Stevenson), and the period-appropriate costumes and sets are absolutely amazing. Just FYI: The TV-MA rating is well earned. This is not a show for the squeamish (or children for that matter) since there is a great deal of blood, gore, and sex as well as a fair amount of fowl language and nudity.
