The Corner of Quirky & Kinky

So, Marc Antony has settled in with Cleopatra, they’ve had a couple of kids together, he’s developed an impressive opium habit (as has Posca), he’s taken to wearing a lot of kohl, henna, and silks, and he’s busy impressing…intimidating…impressidating dignitaries from Rome by having a slave dress up in a deer skin and pretending to […]

Things are getting even worse in Rome. Octavian, Antony, and that other dude whose name I can never remember divide up the Roman Empire between them. And Antony accepts a giant gift (read: bribe) from Herod. Posca, Caesar’s former slave is pissed when he doesn’t get a share, so he rats out Antony to Octavian […]

Welp, Season Two started with a bang and I feel fairly certain I won’t remember any of this in the right order, but Caesar’s dead, Antony is shock and before he can quite deal with that, Pompey’s son Quintus and some of his buddies try to take out Antony, too. Antony goes to Atia’s. Atia […]

Okay, so Caesar and the 13th head over to Alexandria to visit with King Ptolemy and his advisors, and as soon as I saw Ptolemy, I immediately stated having flashbacks to doing daycare, and the child I’ll call The Young Prince – actually, even his mother called him that in this bizarrely overindulgent sort of […]

Vorenus and Pullo survive the storm that drowned most of the 13th Legion and end up on what basically amounts to a sandbar in the Aegean (I think, but I’m super bad at geography) Sea. They’re both prepared to die (and Pullo is very sweetly pondering seeing his mother again in heaven) when Vorenus spots a […]

So, Pompey and Caesar’s forces are fighting in Greece, Antony is holding down the fort in Rome and basically being his d-bag self and making what some consider to be questionable decisions. (I feel certain the naked slaves fighting with real weapons as part of his sexytimes games fall into that camp.) Atia, in addition […]

There’s a lot going on in this episode, but I’m going to do my best to sum up. Basically, Atia is continuing to be the schemeiest person who ever schemed and is wildly disappointed when she discovered that her teenaged son hadn’t  had sex with Caesar in the closet. She then sets him up with sword […]

Okay, so you know that title that mentions Naked James Purefoy? Well…there’s literally Naked James Purefoy. Be advised as you scroll.  So,  the treasury gold is still missing, everyone’s pissy at Pompey for leaving the city. Pompey’s son, Quintus the Douchebag is sent off to torture the location of the gold out of whoever it seems like […]

Okay, so our guy Caesar sends Marc Antony who’s now the Tribune…or maybe it’s the Tribute…(either way, he’s not volunteering to save his sister or anyone else, he’s in this for himself, and you know, Caesar) to Rome. As Tribune/Tribute, he now has veto power in the senate. A pile of Roman centurions accompany him […]
