Just watched the first episode of Rome. Interesting, though like most other shows these days I've forgotten half the cast list (hey, I can tell you who is doing what in these things but I blank completely on most of the names). Still, I noticed that this show has less qualms about showing you the naughty bits of most of the cast (some lovely slow full-frontal shots of any actresses under thirty-five for example) but seem intent on keeping violence mostly off-screen or between scenes. No one has written to the Radio Times to complain yet though. It's a veritable I, Claudius for the noughties. Can we get Brian Blessed and John Rhys-Davies in there too?
