Something about the "5 Good Emperors" would make for some interesting television. Other than that maybe an updated I, Claudius.

You seem to be in a minority with your fetish for Aeneas and Romulus.

Personally I think something in the later Empire, say anywhere from Septimius Severus up to Justinian, would be swell.

Aeneas journey - Spartacus Starz or Rome tv show style.

I'd love to see Aeneas in a Spartacus type role of the Starz show.

Liam Spartacus did better job than Andy Spartacus btw ? dunno, I have to watch first season.

A series on Justinian would be pretty interesting with how crazy his reign got.

What's up with people wanting a Spartacus-type show of Byzantine times ? Why doesn't Aeneas suit it ? I mean Aeneas was just as bad ass as Spartacus!

Agreed. A Justinian series would be incredible, and would warrant much attention from the press if done well.

Because the Byzantine Empire is a great place if you want make a historical TV series, much more than Aeneas in my opinion.
