Julius Caesar and the thirteenth legion

I’m quite taken with BBC/HBO collaboration, Rome (IMDb / HBO), which I’m currently watching on Belgian channel Canvas. It’s basically the story of Julius Caesar vs Pompey and the rise of Caesar Augustus, the first emperor of Rome.

There’s a rather positive review on Slant

And if you’re looking for more -lots more!- background info, check out the wikipedia entry for the show. This article mentions that the BBC edited the first few episodes. I wonder which version I’m presented with on the aforementioned Canvas.
