I heart Rome

When I was about 12-13, I had an teensy obsession with the Ancient Roman Empire (read: Nerd), and read everything I could about Ceaser, Antony, Augustus, right up to Tiberius. The second season of Rome on HBO just really brings out the history geek in me. And it brings the lusty lusty big time. In the form of one Marc Antony, played by James Purefoy...



I guess Antony (in Ceaser's time anyway) would have been sort of a Rock Star. And with good reason. Has anyone Ever rocked a Toga like this guy?



He looks good in leather too.

Let's not forget my original Rome boyfriend, though married life has made him a kinder, gentler Titus Pullo...



...he is still hot stuff and not to be fooled around with.

I am reminded of one old promise to send copies of Rome... I still dream of this Purefoy nakedness... *le sigh*

I guess I'm gonna have to add this to my download list, after Battlestar and Doctor Who.

I finally started downloading Battlestar but haven't been able to burn the dvds properly (don't know what i'm doing wrong). we had to watch eps 1 & 2 in black and white.

Battlestar is the best show ever!!!!

No you definitely need to put Rome in front of Dr. Who. That show gives me the wig.
