  1. I have to circle back when I get home to see the trailer with sound, but I love the costumes! I didn't know this to be true until I had Antonio, but a woman would rage war for her sons. I'm not surprised she went to such great lengths using them as her motivation.

    1. She was a wife and mother of emperors, obviously a very ambitious woman. I found the trailer a bit disappointing, expected more splendour, this looks darkish and gloomy, but I will give it a go of course.

  2. I have always had a fascination with shows and movies focused on ancient Rome. This one looks great. I'm not sure what our equivalent to SKY is, but I'll be sure to look for its availability here.

  4. While I may not be into movies/TV shows where the story is set way back... I am kinda interested in the Ancient Rome. 😏 Was planning to skim through Spartacus and Rome, I think that's what they're called. 🤷‍♂️ Not sure about this one, though.

    1. Both Spartacus and Rome were amazing shows, two of the greatest actually, Rome especially.
