  • Rome the HBO Series.

    Did anyone here watch it besides me? I'm really depressed that it's over. I want to protest HBO for canceling such a great show, and yet they keep shows like Entourage.

    From what I heard it is/was supporsedly a really cool show. I tend to rent the seasons on DVD instead of watching them on tv, though. I'll have to pick it up.

      It was canceled for the same reason that Eureka was canceled. They were really great shows, but they cost much more than they were making.

      Kind of like Firefly, if I assume correctly.

      Pity, huh.

        Great series. Although not completely historically accurate, the show was very engaging and interesting.

          I quite enjoyed Rome. The only thing which I didn't like about the show was the way they skipped past huge battles and long periods of time without giving you a good sense of what happened. It felt like you were teleporting through time and space. The stuff that happened in between those gaps was fantastic though!

            All I heard at work from the guys was how cool it was but I never got to see any episodes... too bad it's gone though.

              This was because they had to rush through the season since HBO was canceling the show. They needed to fast forward through history.

                Great show. I had no idea they rushed the end becuase HBO was canceling it.

                    I loved this show and am sad to see it go. At least they ended it well.. even better that a certain character was never confirmed dead at the end.

                      Well they did the time and battle skipping in the first season as well. It isn't the fact that they skipped things that bothered me, it was the way they presented those skips. It was just the style they chose.

                        They showed one battle this season although i can't recall which. towards the end of this season the skips were much more apparent and more frequent several years infact skipped and you wouldn't even know until octavian goes "it's been several years".

                        Seasons 2 was two episodes shroter then season 1

                          They showed the Battle of Philippi where Octavian and Antony defeated the army of Brutus and Cassius.

                            Eureka was renewed.
