Four hundred years after the founding of the Republic, Rome is the wealthiest city in the world, a cosmopolitan metropolis of one million people; epicentre of a sprawling empire. The Republic was founded on principles of shared power and fierce personal competition, never allowing one man to seize absolute control. But now, those foundations are crumbling, eaten away by corruption and excess. After eight years of war, two soldiers, Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo unwittingly become entwined in the historical events of ancient Rome. A serialized drama of love and betrayal, masters and slaves, husbands and wives, ROME chronicles a turbulent era that saw the death of the republic and the birth of an empire.

Rome takes us into what the Roman must have been like over thousand years ago. With plenty of nudity, sex and gratuitous violence this show is definitely not for kids.
What makes the show is the political intrigues and scheming of the power brokers of the era like Caesar, Pompeii and Cato.
We also see things from two Roman soldiers point of view. One is upright and moral and believes in the Republic, whilst the other one is a easy going brute who loves nothing more than song and wine.
The production values are excellent, with great sound and picture quality.
Highly recommended for all fans of good Historical dramas but with a modern edgy twist.
