re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)
Rome cost a ton of money. But yeah, sucks it got canceled. Great stuff.
Watch Game of Thrones. It's similar enough and should be far better based on the novels.
Rome was hella expensive becuase they shot it on location, and Romes the most expensive place to shoot on earth.
I recall hearing the Thrones budget is about the same but since they are shooting in a less costly place they are able to do more.
