It’s not just TV: It’s HBO shows from several years ago on DVD

Since we’re caught up to real-time on The Wire, Bookdwarf and I have been watching Rome, which we’ve rented from Netflix. Both shows are excellent– plenty of intrigue, good acting and strong production values.

On the other hand, I’m confused by the way that all of Rome seems to speak with a British accent, and you definitely don’t have the same feel of suspense wondering whether Marc Antony is trustworthy and what will become of young Octavian.
