Customer Reviews of Rome-Complete 2nd Season
I am glad I didn't know about this series before, because watching on DVD was the best. It's better than any movie; it's elaborate, the acting is superb. Sad that it's canceled.
This is a great HBO series! Great scenes and acting. The DVDs even have a feature where you can have side historical facts displayed on the screen so this is a must have for anyone with an interest in ancient Rome. The only possible drawback is that the series is not at all family friendly for kids to view because it has a lot of graphic sex scenes and graphic violence. At times both the voilent and sexual scenes can be very crude and disturbing so I wouldn't buy this for educational purposes.
