Rome II

Finished with Season 1 of Rome on DVD.

I'll go ahead and say that I enjoyed it for the most part.I can tell it's going to be one of those shows that constantly raises my hopes of happiness for the characters, then dashes them against the sharp rocks of alcoholism, suicide and fiance murdering.

I gotta say though, the scene where Pullo fights off like nine gladiators (in gory detail) while Caesars slave strolls through the streets of Rome (presumably on his way to save him) had me literally sitting on the edge of my chair, just inches from the TV screen.
Of course, I was watching it in my bedroom, where my chair is already right in front of the TV, but you get the idea.

So, now I get to wait another three or four years for season 2 to come out.

And hey, whatever happened to Cleopatra?
