How come the bad reviews on here are seen, pretty much totally, as "not useful", yet Amazon don't remove them?
A bad review is fine, if it's well written and makes good points. But the bad reviews on here are just idiotic. People moaning because this series shows sex and violence because the Roman's weren't "really like that"? Give me a break. They were WORSE!
As for the stupid argument that it's not historically accurate - BIG DEAL. I can't believe the people that gave this series a bad review actually bought, and watched this entire boxset. They're writing reviews based on watching a couple of episodes at best. If I review an album after listening to two songs, it's not likely to be a true reflection of the complete piece is it?
Pseudo(or wannabe if you like)-historians giving this fantastic series a bad review simply because they think they know better is just ridiculous.
