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

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.

If there were more guys like this people wouldn't make such a big hairy deal out of getting murdered.
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.
