Empire (Rome that is, though really it is the Principate)

ABC unveils a miniseries, Empire, about the rise of Augustus tonight (6 parts). Normally I don't watch the toob anymore, but I might check this out, the review in The New York Times suggests that the series is to ancient Rome what Taco Bell is to Mexican food. But hey, are you going to Oaxaca to get some authentic mole anytime soon? And the The New York Times piece suggests that HBO is going to be presenting your with more authentic sword and sandal fare this fall....
