    Also Netflix Roman Empire (Documentary) is actually very well made and its a Mix of TV series with Documentary, so we have the "Story" but also the Historical accuracy.

    Season 3 is about Caligula.

    Rome had one of the most epic fight scenes ever (action starts at about 3 minutes).

    Wife got me to watch Rome about 6 months ago. She quit after the first episode or so; I was hooked and binge watched it all. I've always liked Kevin Kidd's acting, too.

It’s rare that networks ever admit that ending a show was a mistake, but HBO executives later did, at least privately.

    It was an AMAZING show, with amazing actors and dialogues. I need to re watch it.
    Rome was a co-production with the BBC; IIRC they were actually the ones deeming it too expensive and pulling out, leading to the show's cancellation when HBO didn't want to finance it alone.

    The Spartacus reboot a few years back was fucking awesome too. Every season was 10/10.
