I have recently been getting into the HBO series Rome, and I have to say it is pretty awesome. I’ll start by saying that yes, there is quite a bit of violence and sex. The sex scenes are quite explicit and there is lots of nudity. But that content aside, Rome is really a great show. The script is very well written. The dialogue is smart and fresh. I have always been fascinated by Roman history, so the history behind it all interests me very much. They did an exceptional job of casting, particularly Ciaran Hinds at Julius Caesar. You may know him from There Will Be Blood, Amazing Grace, Munich and Lara Croft: The Cradle of Life. He has a very powerful and stoic air about him, which is perfect for the role. Kevin McKidd as Lucius Vorenus is definitely the break-out star of the show. He can play emotion really well and doesn’t try too hard. Lastly, if you are a fan of period pieces, I would watch this show. The costume design and art direction is fantastic. All the colours are very deep, dark and rich. It’s a great show! Go watch it. Rent it on DVD. Do what you must.
