Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this masterful historical drama enjoys the freedoms of its pay-cable home: It's full of extreme violence, graphic sexual scenes, and crude language. In one scene, a main character walks up to a soldier and draws his sword blade across the man's throat, watching as blood begins to pour out of the soldier's mouth. In another scene, a death blow is dealt off screen, but the killer parades through the city with the victim's bloody, decapitated head in his hand. Sex scenes are explicit (and sometimes acrobatic), but not drawn out. All kinds of pairings are featured -- men and women, men and men, men and boys, etc. In other words? Not for kids.

Sexual Content

Full frontal nudity -- men and women. Explicit sex scenes between men and women, men and men, and men and teen boys. Lots of discussion about sex, whores, prostitution, trading sexual favors, etc.


Extreme -- throat slashing, beheading, violent battles, tons of blood.


Everything you can think of: "f--k," "c--t," "c--k," etc.

Social Behavior

Life in Rome is full of secrets, gossip, intrigue, murder, betrayal, love, passion, duty, and plenty of plotting and scheming.
