Romulus Season 1 Review
Season 1 of this Italian drama has a 6.6 rating out of 10, which is not bad for a show filmed entirely in Latin. A brutal and blood-thirsty series, Season 1 was quick to gain immense popularity just after the premiere of the first few episodes. The show did its very best to live up to the image of archaic Rome back in the 8th century as it pays an equal amount of attention to the inseparable contents of life then, including war, filth, and the capitulation to religious beliefs.
The creators of the show were indeed successful in demonstrating the lives of the people back then, which is what has made the show more credible besides the realism it offers. Stemming from the roots of what original Rome would have looked like in the 8th century, viewers have already added Romulus to the list of must-watch series. With Season 2 underway, the stakes are pretty high, and the excitement is vivid.
