Hilarious view of Ancient Rome
1 March 2015 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

When it's about comedies with silly humor the British ones work the best for me. I really enjoyed every episode of Plebs. The simplistic lifestyle that is been shown might be repetitive but that's what makes it even better. The stupid and not useful jobs they have, their "slave" that does absolutely nothing, their constant failure to climb up the social ladder, the crush he has on his neighbor and the failures to get laid, it all makes it a very easy and fun series to watch. Tom Rosenthal, Joel Fry and Ryan Sampson all did an excellent job with their characters as well as the other actors in this series. The ska music in this show, although you would think that doesn't work in ancient Rome, is excellent. I caught myself skankin' more then once. The only sad thing about British shows is that they are usually quickly over even if they are really good. To me this one could go on for many more seasons.
