I vaguely remembered watching the old BBC series "I, Claudivs" with my Dad many years ago. SO when I stumbled across it while browsing Netflix- I put it in my queue and sure enough I got to it eventually. This is a really good show! It is definitely a drama with minimal special effects or action sequences. The dialogue is the focus nothing else. So if you like roman history and or that type of drama, I highly recommend it. The series was done in 1976- and had a few faces that I recognized. There is a John Hurt, a very young Jonathan Rhys-Davies and best of all Patrick Stewart sporting hair on his head! I gained some respect for Patrick Stewart since he played a tough, evil captain of the guard. I always thought of him as the panty-waist, pacifist, tea-sipping wussy captain on the revised Star Trek show. Anyway- I hope you enjoy I, Claudivs as much as I did.
