When I die, it won't be nearly as awesome. And that makes me sad.

Yes: no one is going to want your damn brocolli.

5 for pullo. Not even the new Punisher movie can take away from how great this character is.
I like how the whole show is basically these two dopey, awesome soldiers killing their way through every major event in the period.
One commentator described it as "Ren and Stimpy's Roman Holiday".

oh oh i want to watch this now!

Now I'm imagining Ren giving the speech from "Julius Caesar" :
Friendzzz, Romanzzz, Countrymen, lend me your EARRRRS..."

fake (fictional)!
Titus Pullo: Knocking up Egyptian queens and choking bitches on their death beds.
Pullo really stole this series.

Such a damn shame they killed it off. They spent so much god damn money on the sets that I felt it really was really unnecessary. Something a few steps above I, Claudius would have sufficed. Season 2 started off with the suck with Vorenus going all emo but it got better towards the end.
"Rome: The Next Generation" covering the Year of the Four Emperors, perhaps? If that works out they could then go on to "Rome: Dacian Border Nine" and "Rome: Teutoburg Forest".

If there were more guys like this people wouldn't make such a big hairy deal out of getting murdered.
Exactly. It seems quite pleasant except for the untidy killing part.

This is a good scene from a show with a lot of good scenes that when taken as a whole completely failed to entertain me. I still don't know why, it had about everything they could have put into it.
Did you watch the episodes in sequential order? That's really a lot of it -- for example, the fact that Pullo and (to a lesser extent) Vorenus are having trouble with civilian life is driven by previous events and serves to drive later events. I watched an episode here and there when it first came on, and it seemed like a bunch of nearly random scenes to me, because I went about it all wrong.

That could have been it. Maybe I should give it another shot.

Reading any history book about Rome is a spoiler. Also, his last words were supposed to be, "There is nothing proper about what you are doing, soldier, but do try to kill me properly." I was expecting more badassery from Cicero than this.
A small point: Pullo was under orders to not plunder Cicero's estate, so he felt obligated to ask permission even before something as trivial as picking peaches. Titus Pullo was all right.
