Still mad as a box of frogs, with sex, gore and mysticism galore and an outrageously anachronistic soundtrack (no Donovan this time though).

It's almost trying too hard to be Cool Britannia, but it's still utterly compelling.

And looks amazing in 4K!

Steve Pemberton (League of Gentlemen) makes a great Claudius.

Quote of episode one: "No-one pisses in my bath!"

Anyone else watching?

The Guardian likes it - but don't let that put you off!
No. lt was watching 1½ episodes of Series One that put me off.

(The half episode was as a result of me thinking, “It can’t have been as shit as l remember.” Reader, it was.)

I’m with you, I came to watch it, I watched it, I gave up.

5 episodes in and I still think it's brilliant!
Game of Thrones meets Horrible Histories, with more than a dash of Monty Python.
