Four hundred years after the founding of the Republic, Rome is the wealthiest city in the world, a cosmopolitan metropolis of one million people; epicenter 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.

God give word to your people
tellem dont fall astray
the lord aint forgot u he watches everyday
see's his children live a sinful life

but the whole worlds sleeping
its so hard but we better get focused
cause the ends gettingg closer
cant lose now cause im gods soldier
gotta try harder cause worlds gettingg colder ```
The Rome Complete Series Box Set is better than I thought. I didn't get to see it much on TV and so now I can watch it in the comfort of my own home thanks to Fishpond.It tells the story of the fall Julius Cesare and the rise of Octavian very well. It also tells the story of the push for a republic well and how the rise of Octavian pushed aside Mark Antony and made him Emperor of Rome and gave Octavian the highest job. This meant a Republic was not possible.
It is a cut above an average small screen mini series. Compelling to watch, wonderful casts. It has enough gossips and back stabbing to please the female audience yet contains enough violents, spectacular battle scenes and plenty of nudity to keep everyone else happy. You have to see it.
