Reflections on Rome (the series, not the trip) *SPOILERS*

-Ya’ll. If HBO doesn’t stop teasing us with these brilliant series’ then taking them away after only a few seasons, I’m going to…to….well, I don’t know honestly know what I’m going to do.. but I’m going to do something, even if it’s kick and scream and whine!
Rome is now over after a beautiful, amazing, series finale on Sunday. In which, I cried over the friendship and brotherly love of Vorenus and Pullo. My God. And when Vorenus’s daughter came in and showed her ultimate forgiveness? Ugly cried.

And when Attia told off her empty-headed, pretentious little daughter in law? I was all “you go girl!” Attia, a bewitching and sometimes evil temptress with a sense of humor and quick wit…definitely someone to strive to be, don’t you think? (cue the eyeroll and sarcasm police) I loved that crazy bitch.
And was I surprised at Cleopatra’s little scheme to save herself after Antony bit the dust? Not at all. Little nappy headed Trollup.

But the best was the final scene of Pullo and Cesarean walking into the city when Pullo says in reply to Cesarean’s vow to avenge his father’s death…

“About your father….”

THAT? Is good television. Adult television absolutely but still good television. And Lord knows that’s hard to come by these days.

By the way, does anyone know when/if Carnivale is coming back?

    No more Carnivale. Just like all HBO shows, they make us love/hate these characters and then cancel the series. Seriously fed up with HBO. Sopranos better have good closure or I am cancelling HBO.

    Well shit! I’m in agreement with you on that. There are never any good movies on, the only reason I have it is to watch the shows. I’m really disappointed about Carnivale. Thanks for the update though sweetie. Love you and see you soon!
