More Rome Ramblings

Right. So. I've just watched the first six episodes of season two. And yeah, that means I got to the episode Philippi. Actually Cicero's death was marginally more moving than Cassius' and Brutus', but still . . . I mean that whole episode . . . .

I'll be in a little tragic lump in my room wishing for a copy of Appian to add to my sorrow.

P.S. - Er, in case it isn't clear, that's not me grousing about historical inaccuracies (which were plentiful but effectively trivial), that's me going `That was so sad I was most of the way to crying.' [Trudges off to corner of misery.]

'Philippi' is HEARTBREAK FOREVER. Especially the bit with Cicero, and the letter, and THAT KID ARGH. ;_; So much sadness. And and and CASSIUS' BIRTHDAY. AND THE CAKE. NO CINNAMON, IT MAKES ME SNEEZE. *wibbles*

...I can't ever stay coherent when I'm talking about this episode. *weeps*

I don't really have anything to say to this except: SO TRUE!!!!!!!!! :'(

I could also obliquely hint at something that watching this episode got me started on, but as it won't come to fruition for several months yet, perhaps I am not exactly wise to do so. :P
