Season 2, no better!
28 July 2018 | by davidorcutt31See all my reviews

For something passing itself off as a documentary, there is not much historical accuracy in this wanna-be docu-drama. When Crassus defeated Spartacus, Pompey was in Spain fighting Sertorius and Caesar was in the East under the general Lucullus - hence the rumor by his enemies that he prostituted himself to the King of Nicomedes for a fleet of ships. Caesar's daughter Julia, at this point in history was approximately 5 years old, not the almost full-grown woman presented here. Why these alleged documentaries insist on fabricating stories when the actual, real history is so much more intriguing, I'll never understand.
