anybody seen this ?

It seems to have started out with much promise, pomp, & ceremony before all degenerating into a pile of steaming cowshyte.

I can see what they are trying to do. Give the Roman invasion of Britain in the narrative of the superstitious era. It was all about Roman Gods versus Celtic Gods.

Zoe Wannamaker & McKenzie Crook cannot compensate for a shyte script, poxy direction and the obligatory revisionist history story.

It is a Roman story which is less Lawrence Olivier and more Gary Linekar. As woke as an insomniac after a triple espresso.

Even the legendary brutality of the era fails to inject any excitement into the story.

The 'Barbarians' ( Germans vs Romans at the Teutoberg Forest ) series on Netflix is 100 times better.

Any opinions ?

I watched first four or five episodes of first series and thought it was awful and very weird! Iím surprised some of the good actors in it signed up to any more series.

You'd think the producers would learn their lessons by now.

I thought it was awful from the word go. Gave up after a few episodes.
When you have excellent series like Vikings to compete with, it had no chance.

Yep, first season of Vikings was a classic.

Went a bit after that.

I enjoyed it all, but the earlier series were the best.

Funny but I've started buying quite a lot of it.
