This is such a good piece of television and it definitely raised the bar and paved the way for bigger shows, like Game of Thrones.
This had nowhere near the budget, but you wouldn't know it. It looks amazing, well cast, the acting is as good as any tv or film about Rome, and I'm fairly sure that I've seen all there is!
The blu ray is fantastic, picture is beautiful and the sound glorious. At this price, it has to be in your collection. DO NOT SELL IT!
The first season is more about drama and politics. The second season is different. It is brutal, violent and (the first half at least) very fast paced. People have liked the first season more but I personally felt that the second season was better and more engaging.
Rome is characterised by the realism shown in terms of how people of the times lived. With plenty of graphic sex and violence and language strong, it is clearly not a sanitised version of history. The sets and costumes are very realistic and give one a feel for how things must have been then. The money and effort spent in making everything look authentic clearly shows.
Moving on to the Blu Ray’s picture quality, it was excellent and a pleasure to watch on HD. The sound was however somewhat muted and you really had to turn up the volume to hear it properly. Barring the opening credits’ music, the music was an absolute treat especially the scores played during the closing credits of each episode. They always reflected the mood of the episode that you had just seen and some of them are masterpieces.
On the whole, an excellent and very realistic series & a must-see for anyone looking to watch a thrilling and engaging serial on ancient Rome.
Not one of those pretend drama's but an actual drama, fantastic story arc (based on events known) with a considerable amount of change from recorded information for purposes of story making
Love the main two characters and wish they'd had more series
