Description

This release contains all 22 episodes from Series 1 and 2 of the Emmy award-winning drama ROME. A generously budgeted show jointly produced by HBO and the BBC, ROME takes viewers back to 52 BC for a chance to relive the reign of Julius Caesar. The first season revolves around the lives of two Roman soldiers, Lucius Vorenus (Kevin McKidd) and Titus Pullo (Ray Stevenson), who win favour with Caesar (Ciaran Hinds) by defeating a mutinous plot from the devious Pompey Magnus (Kenneth Cranham). This affords the two men a gateway into the lives of Rome's ruling classes, and so the season unfolds, with intricately woven plots, fine acting, and stunning recreations of the ancient city, to provide a thoroughly engrossing television show. Details have been painstakingly pored over to ensure accuracy, so both history buffs and viewers less versed in the ways of Caesar should find something to enjoy here. This release contains the entire first season of the show.

Very crispy image telling us the story of Rome. A lot of sexual parts in it, wonder if it really was like that those days, that the only minus. For the rest historical representation of Rome.

This Rome box set is fantastic! Absolutely 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. This box set is probably the best period drama ever made, and is essential viewing.

Another great HBO series, "All roads lead to Rome" narrative is an excellent way of initiating anyone who has no idea of the historic referencing. I've watched the entire series 4 times now, and am still enjoying every minute. This is obviously for an adult audience, with violence and sexual content being constant, although most is relevant. Expertly written and with a great cast throughout.

I cannot recommend this series highly enough for those who have an interest in Roman history. It really does bring history to life! The quality of the video is excellent with Blu-ray and well worth buying at such a low price. It was delivered very quickly and well packaged.

Absolutely cracking epic tale of Rome in the times of Julius Caesar/Mark Antony/Cleopatra. The story centres on the trials and tribulations of 2 common soldiers and their interaction with the politics and scheming of the Roman ruling parties. Full of watchable characters invariably played by recognisable British actors (and refreshingly not a yank in sight) Dialogue is very modern-english, action is loud and bloody, humour is sharp and often earthy, the sets are lavish and realistic, the sound quality (especially in blu ray) is excellent. One could compare it to a cross between a Hollywood epic (eg Ben Hur) and a soap opera. To be watched and enjoyed in bite sized chunks. In conclusion, unbeatable small screen entertainment.

Revenge, treacherous intrigues, incest, betrayals, bloody violence, corrupting power, and explicit sex all contribute to the glory of Rome. Rome delights viewers by giving them a delicious taste of the villainous history of the Roman Empire, between 52 B.C. and 31 B.C.. We see the rise and bloody fall of Julius Caesar and also the political machinations that followed, between Mark Antony and Gaius Octavian Caesar (Augustus Caesar). The stories of these characters are well-known to most of us, with writers such as William Shakespeare and Robert Graves offering us detailed character portraits. However, this is where Rome strives and succeeds to be different. Rome throws out all of these noble, heroic, and clichéd images and starts afresh. Antony, for example, is portrayed as the ultimate lad, his thirst for excess and vice unrelenting, and he just loves a good barbarous battle. Whereas Octavian is an intelligent and often cruel political strategist, who prefers to sit in his tent as the battle commences. Yet, this rehashing of characters is not all that Rome has to offer, for its genius lies in other quarters. Rome brings to life creatures that are only briefly mentioned by historians, such as Vorenus and Pollo, two soldiers whose exploits are at centre-stage of all the action. And, according to Rome, both men have a profound, if often accidental, influence on Roman history. Vorenus is unintentionally responsible for Julius Caesar's death, and Pollo is responsible for Cleopatra's claim on the Roman Empire. If there are any heroes in Rome, Vorenus and Pollo are the most likely candidates. Vorenus is an honourable soldier, whose dedication to doing the right thing often leads him to ruin and unhappiness. However, Pollo is an entirely different sort of creature. He is just such a lovable, "big-bear," who the viewer can easily forgive the odd, homicidal rampage. Both men are fiercely loyal to each other, even after an argument, and they save each other's lives on numerous occasions. But Rome's "piece de resistance" is without a doubt the character of Atia of the Julii, played by Polly Walker. She is scheming, vengeful, cruel, and, at times, foul-mouthed; you cannot help but adore her. She perceives life to be a series of trivialities sent by the God's to vex her. Only when she realises that she has lost Antony and that her son has become a cold, callous opportunist, just like his mother, do we see a solemn side to Atia's nature. Of course, some will argue that Rome takes considerable liberties with history, but what writer worth their salt would ever let history get in the way of a good story? Rome informs us of the salacious and villainous exploits of Roman nobility, yet it does not forget the Plebs and the Foot Soldiers, who constitute the life-blood of any empire. This epic saga is tantamount to glorious filth, and you will love every violently lecherous minute of it. In short, Rome is a sumptuous production that sports a superb cast and outstanding writers, and is, quite simply, sublime.
