If you're talking about the BBC series I thought it was great. You had to watch it as if you're watching a play. Some great acting from Derek Jacobi and others. Livia may be the most devious and evil female on film.

Doesn't hold a candle to "I, Yancey."

I did not find out about it until last year when I listened to the "History of Rome" podcast from Mike Duncan.

He highly recommended the book and the series as must read for people looking for some information and background on the princeps and some customs and background mechanations of that period.

I've read the book (****.5), and seen part of the series, years ago. The episodes I saw were good, but the video store (lol) didn't have the whole thing. I thought about buying it a few years back on DVD, but the versions on amazon had some really bad reviews about the quality. Might take another look.

John Hurt is a great English actor, and plays Caligula. There's one scene I remember where Claudius (who is forced to act the fool, and kiss the Emperor's ass, to keep from getting executed) 'divines' that Caligula is now a god. Caligula then wonders "but if I'm a god, why can't I sleep more than 3 or 4 hours a night?", and Claudius (who stammers) replies "M-m-m-most gods don't sleep at all".

A 35th anniversary edition was released on 27 March 2012. It includes the twelve episodes (in their uncut states) on four discs, SDH subtitles, and one disc of bonus features.


The Episodes are also posted on Youtube with very good quality. I have the 2012 DVD set and it is great.
