Having now seen all of series one (years after everyone else, but never mind), I’m in full agreement that it’s awesome, despite the historical liberties taken. I don’t understand why the BBC haven’t promoted it more heavily, since their name is prominent in the credits, and presumably they stumped up a fair chunk of cash.

Favourite comedy moments: the grim raft, Titus Pullo making off with an accidently discovered wagon, and the the slave gift to Servila.
