Can't believe that I saw this series nearly forty years ago when it aired on television. Holds up very well. Great players. Great dialogue. Really enjoyed seeing it a second time and will watch it again.
I watched this as a kid and it was hypnotic. It turns out it still is but now I can see a lot more relevance of this story to today's events than ever before. Politics and human behavior didn't change much over the centuries-tools ,methods and speed did. 2000 years of Christianity unfortunately didn't do much ether for those at the top.
Derek Jacobi is fantastic actor no matter who he plays.I'm glad to see him again as Claudius.
