Picking up exactly where Season One left off on the Ides of March, 44 BC, Caesar has been assassinated, stabbed to death, and his bloody corpse lays in the senate. The rapidly spreading news shocks the city. Even consul Marc Antony must run to the safety of Atia's house where he swears to take bloody revenge on Caesar's murderers, but for the time flees with Caesar's family to the north. But Octavian keeps a cooler head then his mother. Calpurnia insists on the private reading of Caesar's will, which names Gaius Octavian as his adopted son and full heir and makes a gift to each citizen while freeing Posca (the slave who reads it out) with a stipend, but they must fear a rightful tyrannicide will be declared allowing full confiscation. Octavian points out legally declaring Caesar a tyrant would also invalidate all his deeds, including mandates held from him, so Brutus' followers have an interest in a full pardon instead.

Trivia

Antony's compromise solution of allowing Caesar's promotions to remain in effect meant that Vorenus would have continued to be a senator. For the sake of the storyline, this was conveniently ignored. See more »

Goofs

Atia of the Julii: Nor shall you now.
Mark Antony: Now that's a shame. It'll have to be Merula, then
[referring to Atia's elderly servant, who looks up startled]
Mark Antony: . Come here, old girl. Jump on!
[pats his crotch]
Atia of the Julii: She'd eat you alive. Come on, this is no morning for foolery. Just get up.
Mark Antony: [Grabs her arm and pulls her towards him] Aw, come here!
Atia of the Julii: [Struggles free] Stop fooling around and just get up!

A Good Take On Roman History
15 January 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best Roman based shows I've ever seen. I'm a History geek and now a lot on the Roman Empire. The characters and all round story of the show is amazing. They excellent, not well know actors and actresses to portray the characters. The visually stunning scenery was beautiful.

This is a brilliant show and you'll like this if you enjoy shows like this. Though... not all the parts are true to history, it's still worth watching. I recommended seeing if you like shows such as; Xena, Hercules, or Into The West. Hope this helps with your choice to watch it or not, I do recommended though that no children watch this...
