Enjoy the empire. While it lasts.

Jun 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Makes its own final exit in a manner that wouldn't have disgraced its historical characters.

Jun 6, 2018 | Full Review…

... "Rome" is no less compelling and addictive.

Nov 28, 2017 | Full Review…

A gorgeous blend of style and substance... It's hard to get down on a show for being too ambitious when so few programs think to color outside of the lines.

Great TV... Miss it not!

Jun 6, 2018 | Full Review…

As in season 1, the acting is rich and lusty, with no costume-drama fustiness. I especially like James Purefoy as Mark Antony.

Jun 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Navigates the high-wire act of jumping significant periods of time between episodes - sometimes years - and remaining just as engrossing as episodes in the first season.

Jun 6, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Shoots hot-blooded f---ing and gruesome death into your veins with a big syringe. It's electroshock historicism. And it's a big part of the reason why Rome is so powerful.

Still reliably rotten, wantonly carnal, and spectacularly costumed as HBO and the BBC resume their dramatic collaboration on the world's largest standing film set at Italy's Cinecittà Studios.

Nov 28, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

This is Horrible Histories for grownups.
