Rome returns.:”(Yay!)”: Starting up just where last season left off, with the death of Caesar:”(poor old Julius.)”:.

He escapes, and ends up in Atia’s house making plans to escape to the North, and of course then return in order to eat the livers of his enemies:”(Maybe he said that later, Im not quite sure, but the threat stands either way)”:. Don’t you just love Anthony’s threats:”(and just Anthony in general. Complete and utter bastard, yes, but still.)”:?

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 … Continue reading →
