Rome - that HBO series that just rocks.

If y'all are looking for an interesting and gripping series to try out, do check out Rome.

I have only one warning- there is nudity (as most Showtime/HBO shows have) and violence (think Gladiator) but...it's not gratuitous.

I got the first 2 discs from my Uni library and it just felt unbelievably real and yet personable.

I instantly got drawn to Octavian - and after checking out the actual history on Wikipedia - I can't wait to get to the rest of the episodes and move on to Season 2.

Gorgeous sets, interesting plots, magnetic characters - I remember reading Julius Caesar in high school and it just...pales in comparison. This is Rome, then.
