        I'm definitely thinking it would be a Sega console. The Genesis had a great library, but I wonder if they might like the Dreamcast for its competitive and arcade-like games. Makes me think of that scene in Titus (1999) where they were playing arcade games.

      It was a different time but it also goes to show just how backwards and violent the Ptolemy dynasty had become

        I mean, it's logical. What they forgot or didn't understand was either Cesar's personal code of honor towards an enemy he respected or Roman culture as a whole. I'm not sure if Caesar was rare in this regard or not. Either way, from the Egyptian pov and probably that of most the world, their actions were logical in the situation. Ancient times were brutal.

          I thought the show, at least, pointed to him putting on an act. He was glad Pompey was taken out, but had a really good opportunity to turn it around on Egypt and make it a wrong they had to atone for, while also displaying himself as a man of honor and showing what uselss barbarians egyptians were in comparison.
          I can't even remember why I have this impression anymore, if he said anything or quickly the expression changed on his face when leaving, it's been too long since I've watched it, but I'm pretty sure that's been the opinion that's followed me for many years now.

            I was just watching it and I'll to double check the smiling part you mentioned but in the next scene he's shown standing alone at a pyre at night with soldiers in the distance. He's cremating what's left of Pompey and you can see tears silently flowing down his face. he absolutely cared about Pompey. he wouldn't have given his child to him in marriage otherwise. they were friends. his jovial expression changes to confusion and something akin to pity when he discovers from Brutus and Cissero that Pompey feld to Egypt when they surrendered to him in person.

              I don't know if it would be smiling, just less pained or angry than during the exchange. But fair enough, as I said it has been quite some time and I probably had some bias to seeing Caesar as cunning and not "just" emotional, and that it deliberately using Egypt's faux pas to get some extra control when the opportunity presented itself.

          There were two major problems with Egyptians murdering Pompeius
          1. They were vassals of Rome and from Roman perspective even their king is far below your average senator. Them murdering the second most important politician in Rome (and therefore, the second most important man in the world, according to Caesars Rome-centered worldview) creates and unbelievably dangerous precedent that undermines everything.
          2. Pompeius was already defeated and was a lot more useful alive, Caesar loved to utilize defeated enemies to his advantage, no doubt he had a place for Pompeius in his many intrigues. Forcing his old enemy to make peace and endorse him and his new order, at the very least, seems like an obvious move.
          Kill him later, if needs be, but only by Roman hand, on Roman orders.

          Personal sense of honor plays no role in this, and egyptians simply fricked up. That or they actually wanted to test the boundaries of their vassalage.
          Either way, they fricked around and found out.

            I'm only quoting this part because I basically agree with everything else you said, but you don't think honor came into it at all? Caesar, at least in this show, seems to exude this 'above all the pettiness' aura and somehow comes across honorable and seems to care for Pompey. I of course do not know the truth of it historically. I'd like to find a good book on the time period this show basically covers.

              Well, I was speaking more about real Caesar in my post, in the show they added a lot of what we would consider honorable today to his character, and not in the times of actual Caesar. Killing your enemies was considered honorable back then, letting them live would actually require some justification outside of personal honor.
              And even within the logic of the show, any such intricacies of Caesar's character wouldn't be known to the Egyptians. Why should they think him to be a softie with modern, post-Chrisrian sense of honor? Because he is being called noble, just and honorable in those faraway lands beyond the sea? Please. People in Egypt say the same shit about them (because they are not suicidal) despite all the cruelty.

          He wasn't. He and many other politicians of the time had personally lived through the purges of Sulla and he had to flee the country when he was a teenager because his father happened to be a legionary in the wrong army taking orders from the wrong commander. Caesar's civil war hadn't escalated to openly murdering political opponents and he didn't want it to (and look what that got him)

              the oh so great republic had been averaging a civil war a decade for about a century before Caesar came along. Purges of political opponents and their entire families and seizure of their estates by thugs with senate backing were not unheard of. Hired mobs taking over voting places and making sure everyone voted correctly with the threat of violence were a regular occurrence. The republic was already dead

                Under Sulla and the second triumverate, i.e. other tyrants.
                Remember Caesar and Octavian had the backing of the senate too :^)

                Obviously the Roman republic had issues with corruption but that doesn't justify a tyrant like Caesar relying on violence to get what he wants.

                Also, half the issues with corruption in the Roman senate were the senate abusing its power to empower tyrants like Caesar in the first place.
                And the other half was bribery that everyone did.

      The king was an inbred moron being puppetted by an entourage of other inbred morons who were at the time actively trying to cheat Rome's legal right to Egypt. Caesar almost died in Alexandria in the ensuing war, that was probably their master plan.

    This show is good but the scene with Octavian and that one girl was the most insane nudity in the history of the world TV and movies. Like how did they get away with it its like one foot covering the wiener and you see literally everything else. I dunno I just wanted to mention that bye. Lucky to live in a world where that shit won't immediately ban your show like it would in the 1950s or whatever.

    I finally watched Rome recently and it was rather odd, after the behaviors of Cinemaphile in recent years, to repeatedly hear "dicky."

    Also the use of graffiti was a brilliant nod to the culture.
