Rome Seasons 1 & 2, 4 April 2010
Fantastic ! Absolutley brilliant. Sex, violence, politics. This is what a period drama should aspire to be like !! Whilst historically accurate or not, the sets and story lines will leave you hooked and wanting more. And while James Purefoy gets all the best story lines, and admittedly girls, as the brutish Mark Antony - it's the sensational performance of Simon Woods, as the cold and calculating Octavian who steals the show. This box set is probably the best period drama ever made, and is essential viewing.
