Packaging Causes Scratches

Comments about this product:

The set is packaged with dvds that slide into the pages of a book.There is a thin plastic liner around each dvd to make removal easier and protect the discs.The dvds will scratch easily without the liners and result in a picture that freezes.Remove the discs from the pages only once and put into dvd sleeves.The historical value is limited by actors with perfect teeth.The various British actors seem to trope the convention of Shakespearean actors as Ancient Romans.The actors are overweight for ancient times and some appear to increase in girth.The sex scenes are another trope with Skinemax style and dropped into the plot.So many blue eyed devils that are actors it seems like they are modern nobility.

      This is definitely for adults. The dark side of this plot is interlaced with enough humor to make me smile again. As I start to like one character, he/she is killed or proves untrustworthy. Rome Lives!

              This is THE best television EVER produced. It is the only time I have ever felt true sadness knowing that we will not be allowed to see more. The acting, storyline,sets are so far above ANYTHING that has been done. It boggles my mind why the HBO and BBC didn't get it together to continue and yet they let some of the worst go on like Def Jam,Sopranos,Sex in the city..... stupid people. THANK YOU Bruno!

                  Comments about this product:

                  This series offers historical accuracy intertwined with engaging story lines about the lives of Romans at all levels of society. The acting is superb. The relationship between Attia and Servillia demonstrates the subtleties of political power shifts during the time of Julius Caesar and the shift from power in Senate to power in the Emperor. The central roles of Caesar, Octavian, Attia, Octavia, Niobe, Servillia, Mark Antony, Brutus, Pompeii, Pulo, Vorenus (and many others) are played wonderfully and capture the imagination throughout the whole series. I truly loved this series as did my late partner Philip Argument and would highly recommend it to you. The screenplay is done to a magnificent standard and you will be enthralled from start to finish. I wish there could be another series, but history has a way of deciding the end of us a story for us!!

                        This is in my home collection and when viewed using a Blue Ray player and LCD 48 inch flat screen system it just stands out.
                        The sound is effective and clear.
                        The picture is clear, color enhanced and graphics are breath taking.
                        It draws you in to the story and you become a viewer involved with events and time.

                          I watch the series at home! I love history and it keeps me engaged in each episode, and ready to see the next one! Some of the actors in ROME have become my very favorites.
                          It really gives you an idea of what life in ancient Rome might have been like, and you imagine yourself being there. I fell in love with it for portraying all aspects of the Roman culture. I wish the series would have continued for more seasons so I was sad when it ended. I feel that there is so much more that could have continued on. I am very anxious for the movie to come out in the next few years! I will always be a fan of this series and I still watch it from beginning to end.

                            This series is complete. The only thing better than the acting and the historical set is the history, tragedy, and emotion they convey. I was captivated by every episode. The chemistry of the actors is prevalent in every episode. By the second season I found myself watching two or three episodes in a row. Best HBO series, second to Deadwood, in the past 5 years.

                              I thought this series was simply amazing. I can not believe how educational it turned out to be. My intention was to watch television. It turned out to be a very informative, educational, gripping story of how the world truely was at one time. It is a must for you to buy and watch this.
                              Please HBO continue the series.

                                  This is one of the best series ever. The script and acting are both top shelf. It is on par with the BBC's 'I, Claudius' with much better production values.

                                    Mesmerizing! This is a amazing series. I actually admire HBO for keeping the series short. The soundtrack is imprinted in my mind. Hypnotic, sexy, moody. I look for other work from these actors just to see if they are that good or it was just the series.
