In our latest “Rome” re-watch, two couples make it to the altar, but you’ll only count one happy person in the lot.
Fasten your seatbelts on this week’s “Rome” for a round-robin of betrayals and a plot twist so questionable, the characters practically break the fourth wall to complain to HBO.
But hey! There’s a shocking act of violence that gets everything back on track.
One of our champions loses his head on this week’s “Rome,” and we must say goodbye – for the first, but not for the last time – to a series regular.
Oh, and the fate of the Roman Republic is decided, thousands die, blah, blah, just the usual from the most unusual HBO drama.
On Aug. 28, 2005, HBO debuted the premium cable channel’s most ambitious drama to date – “Rome.”
Set in the waning days of the Roman Republic circa 52 BC, this sumptuous, sprawling saga tracked the shifting winds of power with seemingly all of the civilized Western world in play.
