Storyline

Brutus gets a chilly reception from Servilia when he returns home from Greece. In Egypt, Caesar rebukes the advisers of the boy king, Ptolemy XIII, for their presumption in eliminating Pompey and demands the man who killed him. Caesar decides to intervene in the dispute between Ptolemy and his sister-wife, Cleopatra, to ensure both Rome's grain supply and his own access to Egypt's treasure. Antony, in an unusual show of prudence, advises against this with only half a legion in Alexandria and Cato and Scipio still at large in Africa. Caesar sends Vorenus and Pullo to rescue Cleopatra from house-arrest and escort her to Alexandria. Upon meeting Vorenus and Pullo, the narcissistic, opium-smoking teenage Cleopatra decides that her only hope of survival is to seduce Caesar and she compels Vorenus and Pullo to help smuggle her into the city first by unsuccessfully attempting to seduce Vorenus, but she has better luck with Pullo. Servilia's relationship with Octavia deepens beyond friendship... Written by Tom D.

Rome- Fictional Characters
30 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kitsalonica-1's version of Caesar's events in Egypt matches the version I remember reading from so-called historical documents. The fact Pullo fathered a child of Cleopatra is ludicrous. Cleopatra was in need of powerful friends at the time and she would have "saved" herself for an important man to father a child. As for being a virgin....probably not! The fictional characters are important to the story. Most Roman flicks only concentrate on well known historical figures and situations. Other people had lives and were affected by the actions of these historical figures. It is entertaining to witness the actions of other people in this TV show about Rome. Long live Rome!
