Sulla did not die as dictator of Rome. He resigned his position in 80 B.C., two years before his death in 78 B.C. He died a slow death from liver failure while writing his memoirs, not from a sudden heart attack. See more »

Flawed, but oddly compelling
1 July 2003 | by Lars-GostaSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this miniseries. I have some objections though. There are several factual errors, like Pompey did not crush the slave rebellion (Crassus and Cicero did), there was no law against armies south of the Rubicon - Caesar just transgressed his jurisdiction to do so. Important characters and events like Catilina's revolt, Crassus, Octavian, the war in Spain, etc. are totally left out. The characters are very shallow. Caesar himself is to sympathetic - he was a shrewd and ruthless politician.
