Trivia

Unusually for a production featuring the death of Caesar, he does not utter his famous last words "You too, Brutus?". This is because the showrunners based their depiction of Rome on the writings of historians of the time such as Plutarch and Suetonius, who stated that Caesar said nothing when he died. See more »

Goofs

There is a sulphur crested cockatoo at Vorenus's house. This bird is native to Australia and New Guinea and would not have been pets in Rome until at least the 1800's. See more »

Quotes

Marcus Junius Brutus: If we are to reckon with Caesar on the senate floor then we will have to reckon with Lucius Vorenus also.
Quintus Pompey: Kill him too, what does it matter?
Marcus Junius Brutus: He's a popular man!
Quintus Pompey: So? I'll kill him.
Servilia of the Junii: It is most important that we keep the people on our side - killing one of their heroes would mess the whole business. Only the tyrant dies!
Quintus Pompey: Then let's kill him in his bed! He doesn't sleep with this man does he?

Rome is a remarkable series one's the most interesting in last 10 years mainly because upon real facts since the beginning every episode is unique. A co-production of HBO made by English in Italian ground gave the series more respectability with excellent cast telling the most important chapter of roman empire about the fall of republic and raise a new Emperors's era who Caesar dreamed and fighting for,the last episode is about the famous events that took place at forum where the dictator was murdered by a bunch of senators who were a long time planning the revenge against Caius Julius Caesar. Voreno and Pullo were the main characters and had to fix their own's problems and left Caesar to face your destiny....fantastic series really one's my favorite on a blu-ray's colorful!!!
