Considering that I am a big fan of toga parties
and have appreciated just about every show HBO has been able to fling at
me, I am happy to announce that HBO’s New Original Series, ROME,
is coming our way this Sunday, August 28th. We posted a first look at this
upcoming show here. However,
if you just need something more to get you amped for this Sunday, check
out these ROME featurettes, behind the scenes, and video clips!
If you are just sitting bored at work or are just
looking for an easy way to kill about forty-five minutes [a solid lunch
break], check out not one but two special featurettes for the upcoming show
ROME. The first sets of clips are hosted over at AOL Television and feature
a preview for the film plus a thirty-minute 'Making Of'. This alone should
get you warmed up and ready to host the next toga party [one of the easiest
theme parties to pull off] in no time. But, if you are a person of action,
these clips also show a nice preview for the battle scenes we can expect
from the series.
Just when you thought you had your fill of ROME, Yahoo! TV also
has a featurette and one clip from the show. After watching the clip titled
'Amends', I have to say that the production value on this show looks damn
good; or should I say HBO quality. You can immediately tell why they had
a high budget on this one, and there was nothing more than just scenery
and camera work for this clip.
Being that ROME is a product of HBO, the same people who brought us the
uncensored series Sopranos and Deadwood, and that it has
one of the highest budgets ever placed on a series [a series that is 12
episodes], I am pleased to say that it is good to know Sunday night television
is back again.
To help celebrate the arrival of ROME this Sunday, we are also giving away
to official posters for the series thanks to the folks over at HBO; looks
similar to image above. To win, just register below and tell us your favorite
HBO series to date along with your email address and nickname so we can
