Rome - "Egeria" - 10/02


"Egeria"
Spoiler:
Mark Antony is running Rome while Caesar pursues Pompey in the East, but when news comes that the tide has turned and that Pompey now pursues Caesar, Antony must decide whether to remain loyal to his old commander or turn against him as Atia and Pompey wish. Pullo takes Octavian to a brothel; Atia attempts to mend fences with Servilia; and Vorenus and Niobe rediscover their intimacy, albeit briefly.

I cant figure out whether Mark Antony was seriously considering accepting Pompey's proposal and turning his back on Caesar. But Attia's disloyalty and treachery angered him and made up his mind as to what the right course of action was. Or was the whole thing just a ruse to draw out those not loyal to Caesar.

I have officially given up on this show. I may catch it on DVD. The worst thing is that I got HBO just for this show. I guess that's what I deserve.

Yeah, and then Pullo to the madame...

"Do you think there's any way I could..."

She replies:
"Not a chance."


So do we think that Octavian really did it with the girl?
Is he just shy or is he possibly ghey?

I'm thinking Octavian did her in the ass... as he got her on all fours, and got very flustered when the madame was about to introduce the guys as options.

You think that Attia could have got a guy with a bigger cock somewhere for the gift, the reactions to him were great!

I am loving this show to bits.
Pullo is brilliant, and I loved how he talked to Niobe via her sister..

"Octavian, have you penetrated anyone yet?"

Atia=Mother of the Year

Liked the ep., but please, no more frontal male nudity! Seeing that guy's enormous package in HD was traumatizing.

The folks over at the HBO forums have made a drinking game out of the male nudity in this show.

I love Atia's line defending her choice of gift: "Large cock is always a welcome gift." Be that as it may, I wouldn't want to be on her Christmas list.

Great episode with a ton of humor.


"How was it?" - Pullo

"Pleasant." - Octavian

"How was he?" - Pullo

"Like bull." - Whore



I am glad I stayed with this one. It gets better every week.
And just a curiosity but wouldn't the man with the horse-cock have been uncircumsized back then?

You have to add the, "Or I'll know Why" too.

That sequence just had the wife and I in fits of laughter.

Sure seems like it. Although I was thinking his abrupt choice as to the girl (before the men) was because he was particularly fond of her. He didn't need to see any others. Of course, that doesn't exactly jive with the "pound it in the butt" vibe.

The madame said the girl was Nymph-like which would mean prepubescent girl and I believe I read before that was Octavian's type, not men.

I wasn't thinking that at all (unless he is not sure which place in goes into) I'm thinking it's just seen as a subservient posture, and since he is supposed to be considered a noble, that would make sense. Plus in an earlier episode, one of the female characters (I don't remember whic one) 'readied' herself for a man (Pompey maybe) in this manner and I did not get the impression he was headed for the backdoor.

I thought he said that about the girl before the one he chose. Wasn't this one with more "substance?"

That's what I gathered as well.

I believe it was Octavia.

Ok, I'll say it. I don't measure up. That guy was hung like a horse.

Just saw the ep. It was real good but I too am tired of all the schlong. I mean this show has more cock than all my porn combined I think whats real stupid is that they constantly show it. Its never implied; no they gotta show a cock several times in case you forget its there. Like this ep, they showed that guys cock about 3 times close up. Why? Its fucking stupid and is actually ruining the show for me. I dont think theyve even shown a snatch; just a random nipple here and there.

Anyone think theyre going to show the battle? It looks like the ship wreck is an excuse to keep Titus and Vorenus out; therefore no real fighting needs to be shown. That would suck cause some good battles would make up for all the other bullshit.

Though this thread has already fallen to the 2nd page, I doubt anyone sees the show as late as I do and will even reply

This show's okay, but it needs to show a lot more cock.
