enjoying "rome" again

Have decided to re-view the 2005 BBC/HBO series "Rome" with my wife.

She's liking it, and I'm re-appreciating it.

What a well-done show! Great writing, superb acting, excellent mock-ups of city life. Season 1 is very tight and moves along very quickly. Season 2 isn't quite as tight, but the story is still compelling and at this point you've grown to care about the characters so much that you're happy to see how it plays out.

While (budget allowing), this could no doubt have been drawn out into a much longer running series, the fact that it's kept very finite I think has helped contribute to its overall quality.

Anyway, thanks again to my friend Brian (still in China), for introducing me to this.
