I wish I sucked a little more at history

You know the downside to watching a show like Rome?

You can never go, "aww, Brutus faces that whole legion by himself, hope that works out for him" or "who would have thought that Antony marries Octavia and not Julii Cooper, shocking" or "gosh, I hope Octavian won`t become emperor and change his name to Augustus or something." Heh.

On the other hand this show manages something almost no other with a larger cast does with me, I like every single character. And they are wildly opposing to each other, they are rapists, pompous assholes, murderers, thiefs, crude jerks yet everybody is human and symapathetic to me. Go figure. Maybe that only works in the context of their time though.
