Caligula: 1400 Days of Terror
« on: July 15, 2013, 11:52:24 am »
I'm only about half way through and I'm really enjoying this documentary even if it's nothing more than ancient tabloid.

Talking Points So Far

* The environment Caligula grew up in
* Tiberius as emporer
*Caligula's ascent to power
*The early years

What can I say? I like a good scandal. Has anyone seen the whole thing? Thoughts? Opinions?

I saw this a few days ago!  I personally found it entertaining and rather accurate by the History Channel's standards (which, admittedly, isn't saying much).  My only complaint is that it didn't stress what was just rumor and what is verifiable, but who really knows?  I will say I'm also a tiny bit disappointed that they didn't say Caligula was an alien...

I saw this a while back. I found it very interesting and factual!
