    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.
    Of course I do. I meant luckiest in the scope of the show.

    I totally with the show right up until the last episode, which just sucked.

    Oh, also Brutus is pretty much the whiniest bitch in history.

    Great show with an outstanding cast. I was a little bit dissapointed that they did show more of the battle of Pharsalus.

    And Pullo would have been a great guy to hang out with!

    I loved this series last summer - Well done HBO.

    I also wish there was a way for a second season, but I don't know how they'd pull that off, now that the characters that kept me watching have met their fate.

    I think this show made a great single-season hit, but I highly doubt it will be back, and that's probably a good thing.

    That was awsome.

    Cuting the gladiators head with the shield was pretty cool.
