Be Afraid ...?
In my box yesterday was a flyer from HBO. It asked me to go here. Ok. Looks interesting. Ooh! Ciaran Hinds is Caesar! And then I look a bit more and find that this is not just HBO, but that it's an HBO-BBC co-production. Now I love lots of stuff put out by the BBC -- generally high quality. And I've adored several of HBO's in-house productions, especially the first couple of seasons of The Sopranos, all of The Wire, and Deadwood (after BtVS, possibly the best. show. ever.). I'm even a bit hooked on Carnivale, which is weird, but I get it (except that someone "accidentally" erased the last 5 episodes in the series before I could watch them). But you know ... this is Rome dammit. And I've seen the previews. But it is HBO and the Beeb. So why am I filled with trepidation?
