I think they already did that, think its called Empire or something with Peter O'tool as Octavianus.llad12 said:Absolutely ... nothing like continuing the series forward into the civil war with Antony, Cleopatra and the naval battle of Actium.
It would be a refreshing change, as most things Roman always end with the death of Ceasar.Sokar Rostau said:I think it is a safe bet that it will continue at least up until Actium. According to imdb there are already two seasons and the cast is signed on until 2007.
I think it is only logical for the series to continue up until Actium if Octavian, Pompey and Antony have significant roles in the current series (I also noted that Cleopatra is introduced in the first season).
I dunno, it would be something of an anticlimax. The death of Caesar is a natural end to the series, maybe Octavian's time could be the subject of a second series.llad12 said:Absolutely ... nothing like continuing the series forward into the civil war with Antony, Cleopatra and the naval battle of Actium.
It is a natural place to finish, the death of Caesar was the final nail in the coffin of the Republic (or at least it confirmed it), what comes after is the birth of the Empire.HAMC8112 said:It would be a refreshing change, as most things Roman always end with the death of Ceasar.
Very annoying, He was the greatest Roman ever though.
Well, they're right - every Roman Emporer was Caesar...Sokar Rostau said:What's more annoying is that, because of this concentration on Caesar, when most people are asked "who was the first Roman Emperor?" they immediately answer "Caesar".
