Episode 100(!): The Rome Pilot

I'ma Need More Wine Podcast

Sep 20 2023 • 3 hrs 29 mins

Happy Wine Wednesday! Candi makes her triumphant return to the podcast to help me celebrate 100 episodes of the podcast!  In honor of this special occasion, I decided to talk about one of my absolute favorite series of all time - HBO's Rome.

Candi and I unpack the pilot episode of the series.  I was delighted that she loved the show so much that she ended up watching the whole thing! This episode focuses on the pilot only and I think we make a convincing case as to why you should keep watching if you are also new to the series.  We'll definitely be revisiting more of it now that I know Candi loved it as much as I did.

The episode kicks off with a few reflections on reaching 100 and then we get into all things Rome.  As with all of our pilot episode discussions, we reflect on character introductions, writing choices, what we thought was effectively done, and we close with the thirst segment.  I also sprinkle in a few historical tidbits for a little razzle dazzle.

It was such a pleasure to mark this exciting occasion not only by discussing a show that I love, but it was a great opportunity to celebrate the amazingly talented Ray Stevens.  His portrayal of Titus Pullo is truly the heart of this entire series.

Many thanks to each and every guest who has given their time to the podcast.  It was an honor to speak to each and every one of you.  And thank YOU, listeners, for your support.  I love you and I appreciate you.

Friendly reminder - we drink, we know things, we use adult language, and we have a great time.
