This is a pretty solid show. The first season deals with Commodus and season 2 just came out about Caesar, Pompey, and Crassus but the focus is on Caesar. It's really well made for a hybrid documentary/tv show. Some cheesy graphics here and there. If you're interested in Roman history it's really freaking good.

Was Commodus the guy who invented the toilet?

So history records the date of Caesar's assassination on March 15th, 44 B.C. Near the end of the show's last episode it correctly begins with the title page "March 15th", before leading up to his murder. Once the deed is done the narrator proclaims that "on the 14th of March, 44 B.C, Julius Caeser is stabbed 23 times". I first thought I heard it wrong, but checked both english and other language subs to verify their inaccuracy as well.

Despite the blunder worth the watch.

S1 E1 down- I think this type of documentary needs to be shown in schools as it will engage kids.

Tits and blood awareness form sent home before its shown, ofc bc we r murica and tits make kids shoot people.
