If you like historical drama this is a great miniseries. It is accurate but also develops characters as they may have been. You will gain a great understanding of how vast and powerful the Roman empire was.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Looks good with info issues
Visual very good. Historical content generally good but with several errors of omission and commission. The barbarians are often portrayed as "freedom fighters", thus their idea of war, conquest, pillage loot etc is "okay". Choice of certain commentators poor as in their agenda does not exactly fit historical facts
The History Channel has done it again! Yet another great documentary shot in "movie style" with good actors. Tells the tales of how the Barbarians rose up from their oppressors and challenged the very might of Rome. Excellent real stories with plenty of drama and action!
