The complete first season of the daring, ground-breaking and controversial historical drama series. Think of The Sopranos in ancient Rome and you'll get a flavour... This six disc box set contains the 12 hour-long episodes of the first season: this features the HBO 'cut' which includes over an hour of footage not broadcast on the BBC! The year is 52 B.C. Four hundred years after the founding of the Republic, Rome is the wealthiest city in the world, a cosmopolitan metropolis of one million people; epicenter of a sprawling empire. The Republic was founded on principles of shared power and fierce personal competition, never allowing one man to seize absolute control. But now, those foundations are crumbling, eaten away by corruption and excess. After eight years of war, two soldiers, Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo unwittingly become entwined in the historical events of ancient Rome. A serialized drama of love and betrayal, masters and slaves, husbands and wives, Rome chronicles a turbulent era that saw the death of a republic and the birth of an empire. Episodes Comprise: 1. The Stolen Eagle 2. How Titus Pullo Brought Down The Republic 3. An Owl In A Thornbush 4. Stealing From Saturn 5. The Ram Has Touched The Wall 6. Egeria 7. Pharsalus 8. Caesarion 9. Utica 10. Triumph 11. The Spoils 12. Kalends Of February
