Is anybody else watching this? If not, may I suggest giving it a watch on ITV Player. It's sort of The Inbetweeners meets The Flintstones. Juvenile behaviour/main characters meets modern living in ancient Rome. It is actually very funny. Definitely worth watching. First episode is a must to orientate yourself to the setting, characters and pacing. Second episode is gold. If only to see what happens to Danny Dyer.|
Edit: Danny Dyer dies in the episode that he gets featured in. Gruesomely. Hilariously

That immediately put me off watching I'm afraid. The fact it's on ITV 2 didn't help in the first place though to be honest...

It's a bit early for an April Fools, Vice.Destroyer

Saw the first couple of eps, and immediately stuck it on record. Luckily, Danny Dyer gets his head immediately ripped off, so that's a black mark avoided.
@M83J01P97 Danny Dyer dies in the one and only episode that he is featured in.

That's a shame. I thought the second episode had its moment. The whol joke about the hand had me in stitches. And the second Danny Dyer gladiator fight had such an unexpectedly graphic end, I was in stitches. But I guess it is not for everyone. I say that if you find Phoneshop and The Inbetweeners funny, you should enjoy this.

So it's shit. No surprise. ITV produce nothing of value.
Episode 3 was also excellent. Give it a try people. Give it a try. Worth watching. More than worth watching. I recommend it.

Nice to have a really dumb silly TV series to switch my brain off and watch. episode 3 made me laugh, the "why did you shag a melon" response from the slave made me laugh a hell of a lot.

ITV made Rising Damp and then in recognition of its utter perfection made a solemn vow to leave out all the jokes from any other sitcoms they produced.
Plebs, which is on ITV 2, I quite like.
