All Guts, All Gory

Ceaser in Gaul hears news of home, but where’s Asterix?

By all accounts, Rome wasn’t built in a day. If the new HBO/BBC co-production is to be believed, this is because our Roman ancestors were too busy scheming, fighting, fornicating, and taking cold showers in the blood of freshly slaughtered livestock. It is a lavish production, which the Other Viewer and I going to thoroughly enjoy in a binge session once we’ve saved a few more episodes on the Planner. We tested the water in the first installment and were suitably impressed, so more comment is bound to follow. However, the same cannot be said for previously viewed Afterlife: initial enthusiasm waned quickly as the characters followed a well trodden and all so predicatable path, they soon succumbed to the yellow button.
