    Rome is really good Beanz xx

    Note that while the Tudors is listed as a historical drama much of the HISTORY is wrong or misleading.

    Facts about people are changed for no reason, dates of events are moved forwards or backward many years to help dramatic effect, people who died natural deaths are shown to have comitted suicide or have been murdered and so on.

    As has been said, this is the second series, and while many years have passed, Henry is getting no older and still look like this sexy young man instead of an overweight 40 year old.

    This is NOT a historical drama this is a SOAP set in Tudor times.

    Watch it for the "soap like" drama, or the sexy men and women, but dont beleive ANY of the facts shown in the program.

    Great series but as above poster states, bears little resemblance to actual events.

    co-production I believe by HBO and the BBC.

    (in response to above two posts)..only cos they've modernised it with sauceyness (literally) because nowadays its what gets the ratings..

    ive watched bits here n there and i still think its an ok series, but i keep missing it! same with Rome.

    maybe im thick..will have another look...do u have to register?

    no magic, you just click the episode you want to watch from that link which will open the new window where you click play, then play on that poker thing (just an ad) .. should start loading.

    Edit: just done all of that, and its now playing.

    yes, hense i thought id warn about the saucyness.. its not for everyone. Bits ive seen are ok, but granted i havent watched one whole episode as ive always missed it. so i'll give it ago too.

    it can't be too soapy, surely.

    What Rome? nah...its easy to get into, one of the best series for a while I think, havent watched Tudors though...

    Ray Stevenson who plays Titus Pullo is MINT and hes the next Punisher too

    was the tudors i think.. i havent watched either much. i might have caught the first ep of rome, but then just kept forgetting it was on (always the way with me)
