A mix of documentary and historical epic chronicles the reign of Commodus, the emperor whose rule marked the beginning of Rome's fall.
"The fact that a Roman legion is depicted fighting out of formation like a bunch crazy people really bothered me. Instantly ruined it for me within the first 2 minutes."
"It is generally entertaining, but the depictions and descriptions of the battlers are not accurate and miss some of the pivotal details. But worse is the depictions of Roman fighting style - Roman infantry fought in tight formations and stabbed with the Gladius! They really needed a military historian on this show."
