Yes, truly great TV. One of the reasons I'm so stoked for Game of Thrones is the overlap of folks who were responsible for Rome and also for this production.
I didn't realize just how "gritty" Rome was going to be. I'd heard very little about it, and thought it was more of a docu-drama like you might see on the History Channel. So, the first time I watched it, I gathered my grade school and middle school boys to watch too, figuring it would be educational.
As it turns out, within the first 10 minutes or so, they got a little too "educated" and I had to turn it off and chase them out of the room (and got chewed out by my wife.)
(But I thoroughly enjoyed the whole series.)
