Storyline

In this British historical drama, the turbulent transition from Roman republic to autocratic empire, which changed world history through civil war and wars of conquest, is sketched both from the aristocratic viewpoint of Julius Caesar, his family, his adopted successor Octavian Augustus, and their political allies and adversaries, and from the politically naive viewpoint of a few ordinary Romans, notably the soldiers Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo and their families. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

On 9 August 2007 a fire broke out at Rome's Cinecitta Studios back-lot. It destroyed 3,000 square meters of the 400,000 square meter "Rome" set but did not spread to the rest of the historic Studios. During the three hours it burned, a few of the highly flammable fiberglass sets in the "suburra" red-light district were destroyed but fortunately, the Forum, temples, thermal baths and other buildings were untouched. It is considered to be the largest open-air set ever constructed to date. See more »

Goofs

The words Domina and Dominus are practically the only Latin words the cast uses regularly. Nevertheless, as they are always used as vocative, the masculine form should be Domine. More than that, the spoken Latin of the higher classes is inadequately close to ecclesiastical late Latin. See more »

Quotes

Titus Pullo: [wakes up during the night; sees Eirene approaching]
Titus Pullo: [smiles]
Titus Pullo: Eirene. It's good to see you.
[she puts a knife to his throat]
Titus Pullo: [gasps, but doesn't fight her] Fair enough.
Titus Pullo: [closes eyes]
[she presses in the knife, but hesitates]
Titus Pullo: [peeks]
Titus Pullo: Erm... i-if-if... If you can't do it... th-that's all right too.

Don't listen to the Naysayers
14 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having watched the first three episodes, I am anxiously looking forward to seeing the rest of the episodes. All of the intrigue that was Rome is presented well, considering that no one involved lived during that time that could give accurate details on Roman life. For that matter, all historical presentations that are over a hundred years old are filled in with speculation and assumption and for that no one can discredit the attempts at accuracy.

For all of the naysayers, listen well. You complain that the show is full of pointelss dialogue. Rome was one of the first political empires to exist. When you have a Senate, it becomes very political. As for the accuracies to design, as I said, we can only speculate in accordance to available artifacts, as to how the place really looked. The designs do look as I picture in my own mind. Another complaint that I saw was about the sex with one such comment relating Rome to "Skinimax". The fact is this is set prior to Christian corruption, shunning the act of sex. So yes, there was a lot of it.
