Rome has completely won me over. Yes, there’s a lot of gore (I have to cover my head whenever there’s the chance of bloodshed) and sex (ain’t nothing wrong with that!), but also a lot of treachery, and war, and history. At times, you might feel as though you are watching the nightly news.
We don’t have HBO so we watched this series on DVD straight through and were so depressed when it ended–but it certainly did go out with a bang. The good news is that it starts up again on January 14th. Watch it if you can–you won’t regret it.
