After the beer festival last night we decided to catch up on the latest HBO/BBC co-production Rome. Anne had already seen it when it first aired on the BBC and it transpired that the version I had (I assume the HBO one) was subtly different. It seems that the BBC version has been more heavily cut and the episode endings changed around a bit. I'm not sure what to do when I catch up with the BBC schedule. It might get confusing if I keep chopping and changing between the two variants.

Cuts aside I enjoyed it. Its certainly a big budget drama with a lot of historical flavour. And of course the classic Roman debauchery appeals to me a little as well ;-)
