Did any of you watch HBO’s series Rome when it was on? If so, did it get good? I bought the DVD and completely checked out of the first episode while I was watching it. I did the same thing with The Borgias and eventually ended up liking that series a lot. I’m hoping the same thing will happen with Rome, but it doesn’t have Jeremy Irons to carry the slow episodes (and distract me with his ill-fitting dentures) like The Borgias does.
Anyway, does Rome get better or did I make a bad purchase?
