I have not seen HBO's Rome, but have heard from many people that it is a very good show full of everything a guy wants (sex and violence) and is well worth watching.
I have not purchased it up until now, but Amazon is running a good sale (as with most amazon sales - I have no idea for how long). I purchased the complete series (it only went 2 seasons) on blu-ray for $60. They also have it on DVD for $40. Both options come with the standard Amazon free shipping offer.
From what I understand, it was a great series that was cancelled due to high production costs. (season 1 cost about 100 million to make) Once I get it in, I will post a review, but the sale may be over by then....
Thought maybe a few on the board would want to add it to their Christmas list. (or, in my case, just purchase it for yourself :p)
