Now in Hi-Definition, Rome Complete contains all 22 episodes from Season 1 and 2 of the Emmy award-winning drama. A generously budgeted show jointly produced by HBO and the BBC, Rome takes viewers back to 52 BC for a chance to relive the reign of Julius Caesar. Four hundred years after the founding of the Republic, Rome is the wealthiest city in the world, a cosmopolitan metropolis of one million people, epicenter of a sprawling empire. But now, the city's foundations are crumbling, eaten away by corruption and excess...And two soldiers unwittingly become entwined in historical events, their fates inexorably tied to the fate of Rome itself.

I have just tried to get this cheaper because I want to order it but had no chance of beating this price.

Fantastic piece of television

Very expensive even if its the cheapest.
Got Band of Brothers for 16.00 so not sure why this is so much more.

Would like to see it though.

22 episodes instead of 10 for a start ...

Great series though.

is it worth the money?

i love other hbo stuff, like band of brothers and the wire etc.. and i do like films from this sort of era...

Its excellent, just like other HBO stuff. If its worth the money or not, thats another question. I think its a bit pricey IMO.

get it! get it now! this series is epic!

Epic series, good script, good production - looking forward to the movie

pricey but probably the best piece of television ever made

Superb series. Massively expensive to make, huge sets. Great characters.

Like most other HBO stuff, just get it.

I like HBO stuff normally but i felt this was a bit weak really and not as good as it could have been. I blame the BBC as they were co funders i think! Still ok price so i'll mark it hot for that.

I remember when watching this thinking how they were going to make Octavian age as for most of it he's about 12. Then he "goes away" for a couple of months and comes back about 10 years older!

+100

If you aren't bothered about the lack of historical accuracy, characters appearing out of their time etc, it's not bad. Not brilliant but not bad.

Its worth it just to see how bitchy the women really get towards each other. Loved the female characters in this. Sylvilia and Attia in particular are epic in this!

Eastenders in togas. Carry on Cleo better

It's a bit naughty with the nudity
:whistling:

Brilliantly acted and worth your time. BBC messed up initial broadcast by editing first 2 episodes into 1 to lose the politics and up the sex, so it didn't make much sense and lost impetus with viewers. Very clever move.

Didn't know that. Wanted to like it but didn't get past first episode. Might give it another go

I'm rewatching my DVDs for about the fifth time at the mo.

An excellent series with first rate production values just like the other HBO favourites.

Well worth £40 for both series on Blu-Ray

Mint series, and the fact there's going to be a movie makes it mintier!
