      Previous John Doyle Globe and Mail Over two seasons... Rome is an intricately plotted story about political power and intimate human dilemmas and crises. It makes Game of Thrones look like a game for children. Apr 30, 2020 Full Review Hal Boedeker Orlando Sentinel These Romans are worth following to the end of the road, no matter how well-traveled it might be. Mar 31, 2020 Full Review Robert Lloyd Los Angeles Times "Rome" is smart, dirty fun. Mar 31, 2020 Full Review Peter Canavese Groucho Reviews The writers are careful to make their most daring historical reaches plausible, consistent, and, of course, dramatically effective. 4/4 Apr 21, 2020 Full Review Tom Gliatto People Magazine 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 Christopher Monfette and James Vejvoda IGN Movies 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. 9/10 Jun 6, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous Louis C Season 2 is just as good as the first. Excellent show. Well acted, well written and utterly enthralling. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/06/23 Full Review GuyManDude B Rome is the best historical drama series ever produced. While I was a little disappointed it ended after only two seasons, I still come back to watch it once a year for the great acting, the amazing representation of the late Roman Republic, and the establishment of the Roman Empire. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/24/23 Full Review Dennis L Seasons 1 & 2 were Really Good! The writing and the characters really allowed the audience to be invested in the character development! It's just too bad they had to shut down the show because it was just too expensive to make. Bummer. I Really Like this series! In today's political climate, not too many shows are made without having to inject Liberal Retards' ideology. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/28/23 Full Review Melanie B I do not know how I missed this series back in the mid 2000s! Just finished it and am sitting here feeling a little depressed if I am being honest. I was totally immersed in the story lines and as soon as I finished an episode I couldn't wait for the next one to begin. I am going to miss Lucius and Pullo the most. Excellent excellent series. Chefs Kiss! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/18/23 Full Review Crom W Top semi-historical drama series Part II Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Jose R A masterpiece!!! Rome one of the best tv shows of all time, it is sad that it only had only two seasons. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/22/22 Full Review Read all reviews Next Post a review
