    Rome: Titus Pullo cannot be killed

    I recently watched all of HBO's Rome- well the first season anyways, here's hoping for more. Easily the greatest character was Titus Pullo, and thanks to the wonders of Youtube.com you can see one of his greatest scenes: his execution of sentence for murder.

    No, he doesn't face the cross- that would be boring.

    There's a lot of story here, but even without the context you should be able to enjoy this.

    Gory as all hell BTW.

    Here's the link should the media tag fail you.

    If I've read all the signs correctly there will yet be more.

    After all, Marc Antony has business yet to be done.

    My dorm put a firewall up so we can't use Ares, any other p2p, or torrents.

    Ah, gotcha.... for some reason I was thinking of Ares being a staple of the Hercules and Xena shows and thought, "why the **** would you want something that cheesy in a show like this, you fucking pleeb."

    But I was wrong, carry on and suffer.

    I watched the whole series not too long ago. Titus is far and above the luckiest (both bad and good) person ever to exist in history. Brilliant. Seriously brilliant.

    You do understand that this wasn't a documentary, right?

    Historical deviations


    • The adventures of Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo, while not violating any known historical records, are completely fictional. The only historical account of Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo is in Caesar's writing.
    • Much of the language is modernized in expression, or converted to modern equivelants. Roman concepts, units of measurement, and even profanity were quite different.
    • Octavian was not in Rome when his adoptive father Julius Caesar was assassinated in the Senate. Octavius was studying in Apollonia, Illyria.
    For further inaccuracies, see the individual episode entries.
