Season One was very high quality film and Season Two is definitely kept as high. A must-see: good entertainment as well as historical. Very good attention to accuracy of the period & events.

I saw this show when it first premiered on HBO. The acting, the plots, the directing--all fantasic. You won't be disappointed if great entertainment is what you're looking for. I'm glad it's finally coming out onto DVD.

I saw this series when it originally aired on HBO. I was so disappointed there wasn't a third season. I would settle for 100% fiction at this point. Every nuance was a shear delight, the story which did take some liberties, was captivating, the interpersonal relationships between characters was compelling. While I do agree it was violent, much of the story line revolved around war and those who engage in and lead it. I guess some would prefer watching the excitement of sleep. I await the blu-ray version of the program with baited breath.

As I watched this series unfold into its second season, I gradually realized that its two protagonists (ex-legionaries of the Roman army trying to adjust to civil life in turbulent times) were both sociopaths and psychopaths. Literally anyone who crossed their paths or got in their way was butchered by these two "heroes" with a mixture of casual abandon and a real enjoyment of slaughter. The penultimate scene has these two characters coming across a roadblock manned by soldiers, prompting one to remark to the other, "I'll bet I can kill more of them than you." The historicallly-based other major characters in this production are also constantly dispatching all and sundry real or imagined opponents without the slightest of qualms. In one scene, Mark Antony beats a fellow senator to death on the Senate floor with a scroll rod after hearing an insulting letter read to him by the man. In short, what was a promising first season of this show morphed along the way into a gangster drama. I know Roman history well enough to appreciate that it was no flower-scented romp in the park, but HBO should also be reminded that not all their shows have to be copies of "The Sopranos" either. For me, at least, there have to be characters with consciences and a reluctance to spill blood alongside of the murderous power-seekers in order for me to identify with them and be concerned about their fates. By the end of this series, I really couldn't care what happened to Lucius and Titus. They had broken too many necks and sank blades into too many bodies for it to matter to me.

Rome Season II follows the aftermath of Ceasar's demise -- it's a bloody affair. Whereas the first season had intelligent writing and interesting character studies, this merely slips into vulgarity and a murder every few minutes. Life is worthless, torture is fun, and honor is nonexistent. Unfortunately, even the rich visuals cannot blot out the stabbings, the whippings, the withered heads ..... At one point, Timon screams, "I am not an animal!" The rest of Rome apparently is.
