Storyline

In Gaul in 52 B.C., two Roman soldiers, Legionary Titus Pullo and Centurion Lucius Vorenus, are tasked with recovering Julius Caesar's personal Eagle, stolen from his camp in the dead of night. With his campaign in Gaul coming to a successful conclusion, Caesar's popularity is continuing to grow. He's saddened however when he receives news from his good friend Pompey Magnus that his daughter, Pompey's wife, has died in childbirth. In the Senate, Pompey must defend the prolonged absence of his friend and co-Consul Caesar against charges of corruption and of waging an illegal war. It's all a ruse however as he is plotting to eliminate him. Meanwhile, Atia of the Julii sends her son Octavian to Gaul deliver a gift of a beautiful stallion to his great uncle Julius Caesar. He is taken prisoner along the way. Fortunately, Vorenus and Pullo rescue him and as a result, both receive Caesar's favor. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The opening battle scene is similar to the event Caesar describes in his Commetaries in which Pullo, after taunting Vorenus, attacks the Gauls single-handed and has to be rescued by Vorenus, then in turn Pullo attacks the Gauls who corner Vorenus. In Caesar's description, though, both men are centurions, friendly rivals but equals. See more »

The beginning of the end for the Republic
30 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

I watched this first episode just after I had watched four episodes of the BBC docu-fiction series about the Roman empire in general. I do not think it is easy to make a comparison since the BBC series tries to highlight certain important personalities and eras of the Western Roman world through out its history while Rome develops the personal history of a certain cast of characters during the final years of the Republic just before the emergence of the Principate. The opening titles of the series is impressive as well as character development which tries to have a "real" flavour.And one important detail Rome is much more sexually explicit than the BBC series which means that it will fare better commercially.
