I, Claudius

I finally finished watching I, Claudius on Tuesday. For those who aren't familiar with it, it's based on a fictional geneaological history of a part of the Roman imperial family, starting with Augustus.

I really liked it, but it was a massive time commitment (13+ hours). It was worth it, though: Derek Jacobi is truly great, in the sincerest and most serious sense of that word. The cast includes a Patrick Stewart, John Rhys-Davies, Bernard Hill, John Hurt (outstanding as Caligula), and Brian Blessed, among other notable British actors.

Don't forget the I, Claudius drinking game, which is truly epic in debauchery.

Here's one set of rules.

That's great! I shared the link with my co-worker, and he got a kick out of it. I should've known you'd be one of the only people on my F-list to appreciate this post. :)
