Rome – Season 1 dir. by

Rome 1.11 & 1.12 dir. by ,

Double episode tonight, so I’m guessing that the BBC have cut a few scenes out of both episode 11 The Spoils and episode 12 Kalends of February. Ah well, we’ll just have to wait for dvd releases and find out if...

Rome 1.10 – Triumph dir. by

How better to start an episode than with forgiveness and a threat? As he takes his seat as dictator Caesar tells everyone that he forgives them, isn’t he a nice boy? But he also makes it very clear that if you...

Rome 1.09 – Utica dir. by

Last week we had a quick year, and between that one and this it appears yet another has gone by. Caesar and all our soldier-boys have come home to Rome. A fact that prompts much luvy-dovy tween Lamb and Niobe, and...

As viewers we may know Pompey’s fate[1] but Caesar is still in hot persuit, and turns up in Egypt, and is, well, lets just say a little upset to discover that what has happened the Former Consol Of Rome! Shame on...

Rome 1.07 – Pharsalus dir. by

Well if Chicken has learned anything it may be not to curse the gods, but somehow I doubt it. After the storms of the last episode he and Lamb are left castaway on a desert island. But there are no polar...

Rome – 1.02 dir. by

I haven’t mentioned the episode’s title in this post as I’m not sure what it is. You see, the BBC have decided to cut the first three episodes shown in American to make two. Their reasoning seems to be that British...

Rome – The Stolen Eagle dir. by

Publicity for this has certainly been building up the sex and the violence, and this first episode did live up to that. Then again, opening with Julius Caesar in Gaul there was bound to be more than a little death and...
