    Honestly, those of you who don't have HBO should snatch up DVDs of this as soon as it comes out. It's got all the elements. Humour, violence, sex, and politics.


    CHECK IT OUT!

    the promos I've seen have looked interesting enough to make me slightly annoyed that I don't have HBO.

    You'd like it much better if you watched it from the beginning, dead sentiment. Or, yeah, you're not that into tv, or rome.

    I watched the first two episodes, pretty good, lots of sex and violence. They got all the episodes as they air up on tvtorrents.com. Accounts are free but necessary.

    My girl has hbo and hbo on demand. Sunday nights its simpsons-family guy-american dad and then to hbo on demand for Rome. Last week they had episodes 3 and 4 on demand so I saw it a week before everyone else did. Woot.

    This week it wasnt on demand so we had to hit up the 2am showing, thats how much we like the show..

    I've caught some episodes of a couple of different HBO series and they're amazingly formulaic. Slow pacing and never wrapping things up in an episode, predictable plots twists. Sure, Sopranos and shows like that are cool but I can't be bothered to have my schedule dictated by the television and I don't really want to watch 142 episodes to figure out what the fuck is going on.

    Does this one actually have a one-plot-per-show type format or is it more of the protracted soap opera crap?

    It is a protracted storyline, but they manage to get things done quickly, ie some story element is solved every episode. I think the series is also going to span at least twenty to thirty years of history.

    I think that the timeline they have started from is also a great starting point from the series. They started the series with Julius Ceasar returning from Gaul to take control of Roman Republic, I think they plan to carry the series all trough the Roman civil wars, and end it with Octavian (Augustus Ceasar) taking control of the Roman empire.

    Maybe I'll check one or two out. I'm bitter after watching the entire first season of Carnivale and having almost nothing happen, then starting to watch the second season and finding out it was getting cancelled and the entire thing was a waste of time because the story was only 2% told.
