Is it utter shite or hilarious? I can't decide. It seems to be on all the time.
with moments of (intentional) black & light hilarity.
As is cunt
Its a very good program
that's for sure
and terrible and shite
It always worries me when people comment on a program to say its shite, but yet they continue to watch it
I read my book and look above it frowning gently every five minutes
an insult to anyone who takes history seriously.
It hurts me to do it, but....
my brother has two degrees from cambridge (top of his year too, natch) in classics and archealogy and he likes it.
but i don't think it's that inaccurate. otherwise he wouldn't watch.
and he takes history very very seriously.
NOT a fucking documentary. Watch it, enjoy, TAKE IT WITH A PINCH OF SALT
Its BASED on HISTORY
did you write it or something? It falls between two stalls. It's dull. And mostly it is just rubbish
its only a shit TV Programme
but I'm not too happy with the 2 new episodes a week idea. It means I'm constantly taking the TV from my housemates.
But sod them, it's my tv, my freeview box and I pay the license. And one of them sits there all day watching Friends and those celevrity shows on TMF
Gosh, that was controversial.
i bought the dvds of the firs series and it's not great but not terrible. i find it hard to identify with any of the characters though and none of them seem particularly likable which makes it harder.
is theft, murder and wanting to rape.
although he seemed good enough when telling vorenus's wife how much the centurian loves her.
But only because he was one of the priests trapped in Ireland's largest lingerie department.
You'll never be able to take him seriously as a gruff soldier ever again.
He starts as the big ape like character but really becomes the show's heart
use the modern manner of speech........why not go the whole hog and dress them up in modern clothes.......like people do in some productions of plays.
the word "fuck" in every sentence they possibly can
they just didnt give a damn did they.......just did what they want.....the hedonists. (said in russel brand stylee)
why not uummmph it up and make it as graphic as the scenes that hint at awfulness are.......surely under such duress people would use words far more graphically than just occasionaly interspersing a 'f**K' here and there.
which is far more styalised and smaller budget and less design realistic?
Yet alsthough they dont say 'f***' what they do say is far more shocking. There seems to be far more behind each character......i.e. feelings and plotting (which is after all what interests us about rome)....or even commudus in 'cladiator' Joaquin Phoenix (for me) showed the danger., madness and charisma with just looks.....there isnt as much to the acting in 'Rome' its just saying your lines and walking around the set
glad that i do not have a television.
slightly spicey yet not too spicey for the likes of the BBC
