Rome

The series is a historical drama depicting the period of history surrounding the violent transformation of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire; a change driven by civil warfare between populists and conservatives, the decay of political institutions, and the actions of ambitious men. While showing the lives of the rich, powerful, and "historically significant", the show's perspective is centered around the lives, fortunes, families, and acquaintances of two Roman soldiers: Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo, two soldiers mentioned in Caesar's Commentarii de Bello Gallico. The first season depicts Caesar's civil war and Julius Caesar's rise to absolute dictatorship over Rome, and his subsequent fall, between the end of his Gallic Wars (52 BC or 701 ab urbe condita) and his assassination on March 15, 44 BC (the infamous Ides of March). Against the backdrop of these cataclysmic events, we are also shown the young Octavian, growing up as the young man who is destined to become the first Emperor of Rome: Augustus. The second season depicts the power struggle between Octavian and Mark Antony following Caesar's assassination. It's a really good show. Get HD.

I thoroughly enjoyed this, even the child actors were spot on. HBO high production value. If you are into the period, good story telling, fantastic acting, topless women, hunky men with no lackluster story you will have a good time.

The only reason this show was cancelled because it cost too much to produce and for good reason. The sets are beautiful and authentic. The script is well written and the depiction of the period is excellent. This is the story of Rome, the rise and fall of Caesar executed to perfection. I recommend this show to any action and period drama addicts.
