Rome is one of the best shows I have ever watched, Wish it had more seasons. I would put it on a top list including Battlestar galactica (new one), sopranos, and lost (minus the crappy ending). definitely a good buy
I know its subjective, but Rome is the best TV series I've seen. Lots of other great shows have been/are being made, but if I had to pick a favorite, its Rome for me.
Its just such a shame this show got knee capped by HBO while the 1st season was still in the middle of airing.
Some didn't think the 2nd season flowed as well as the first. There is a reason for that. The show creators originally envisioned a 5 season story arc, but that plan was blown to pieces when HBO made the decision green light a 2nd season, but effectively abort the show once that was completed .
So the creaters decided to cram the stories of the planned season 2 and 3 into Rome's final season. Originally, Season 2 was to conclude with the Battle of Phillipi. Season 3 was to be dedicated to Mark Antony's time in Egypt with Cleopatra, and finish up with the Battle of Actium.
With Octavian's/Agustus power secured, the storyline in S04 was to shift some toward Jerusalem.(this is where the whole Timon storyline was headed) Since King Herrod sided with Antony in Rome's most recent civil war, we would have got to see him kiss major Octavian ass to remain in power. Additionally, Pullo and Vorenus were set to smuggle Cesaerian into Jeruselum. There, his identity would have been changed, and he was to become the young(you guessed it) Jesus Christ. Yes, it would really deviated from history enormously, but man, talk about EPIC! Sure would have pissed off a shit ton of people too!
Season 5 would have carried forward through the life of Jesus with Roman take on events during that time.
This is a segment from the movie "Ring of Power" (a.k.a. "Empire of the City").
I do recommend watching the whole film as it does have a lot of good information in it... This is probably where the HBO series "Rome" was going...
