Rome, season 2

I enjoyed Max Pirkis in the role of Octavian in season 1 of "Rome"; he did a splendid job of communicating the intelligence and savvy of the future Caesar Augustus. Now in season 2, the role is taken by Simon Woods, who is positively lethal.

Woods, who bears a strong resemblance to actor Paul Bettany, continues the same speech patterns set by Pirkis in the role, and his nearly unblinking eyes show a young man absorbing absolutely everything around him.

Great show.
