"If Triton can't keep me dry he can suck my cock!" - Elf M. Sternberg
"If Triton can't keep me dry he can suck my cock!"
Omaha and I are indulging in a little television. A long time ago we started watching HBO's Rome, but we cut our subscription before the series ended. I now have Season 1 on DVD, and we've been catching up.

Man, I'd forgotten how nasty some of the characters were. Like Atia Julii, the evil temptress who uses money and sex to make life miserable for everyone around her, especially her own son. She does have the best lines, though. When asked why she's sending a particular slave to a female rival as a gift, she explains "Big penis is always welcome!" We get a full-frontal, slow-pan of the camera along the body to show what she means and, oh my god, that was impressive.

Omaha and I noticed that they don't ride the horses correctly. Rome didn't have stirrups. And while they got the soldier's backpack supports correct, the load is slightly wrong. Probably because they didn't want to kill that many pigs: each soldier carried several pounds of smoked pork with them.

I bet that their insurance company made them use stirrups.

Maybe. Caesar isn't using stirrups in the one scene where he gets on a horse. He doesn't ride it; he just uses it to elevate himself above the crowd so he can give a speech.

I didn't remember seeing stirrups in Rome.

I've watched both seasons obsessively. I prefer the first, though.

Atia is right. Get yourself a good strong Cyrenian down the market and have done with it, as Brutus memorably said.

Although, I must say, I'd love to have read the casting call for that rôle. "Must have truly impressive ... just trust us here."

There's a scene in Episode 6 where the army is moving south, and you can clearly see stirrups on some of the horses.

As for the casting, that was probably easy: they just went to the porn studios and said, "We need a few extras. What have you got in the big dick department?"
