Everyone who responded to my question about whether HBO’s Rome got better than the first episode was right on.  Shit picked up after about two episodes and I’m all in.  Any other historical dramas that I should check out?

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?
