This has to be one of the best shows I've seen in the past few years. And cause of the price of the ep's.. It's in it's last season. Such crap. All the crappy shows that pay their respective actors and actresses millions of dollars per season and this one can't even last more than 2.
Well rent season one and watch season two.
It's getting extremely interesting.

True. Well written and acted drama is very hard to come by, at least on these shores; it's a shame, really.

"All the crappy shows that pay their respective actors and actresses millions of dollars per season and this one can't even last more than 2."

No product placement or advertising dollars to offset the cost of this wonderful series or increase their profits; it makes for a costly, yet wonderful, endeavor. At least Dexter and Deadwood are still around and coming back for more.

It's all about the Benjamins!

There could be product placement. lol.. Roman candles? Toga's. Caesar....salad. Damn the all mighty dollar.
Yes.
Dexter will be back soon, but Rome could have gone on for a few years, even fast forwarding a few years each season.

Well, they could ironically scatter catchphrases. Someone driving a chariot could refer to it as "the ultimate driving machine", in a tavern the local brew could "taste great, less filling" Or they could scatter graffiti that suspiciously resemble corporate logos.

Anyway, as one without HBO, what's going on in the second season?
