Ancient Roman Version of The Inbetweeners
9 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Loving this - it's pretty much The Inbetweeners do Ancient Rome. Class.

The story focuses around 3 guys living in a pretty dull area of Rome (- not Gladiators, nor Senators, just blokes - hence the title) Tom Rosenthal plays the very straight Marcus, who has the most resentful slave ever in the fabulous Grunio (Ryan Sampson, rocking a hairdo like Howard from Big Bang, and pretty much channelling Baldrick with a grumpy attitude) They live with the over-sexed Stylax (Joel Fry), next door to the gorgeous but dim Cynthia (Sophie Colquhoun) and her scary and whip smart slave, Metella (Lydia Rose Bewley) - both from Briton.

A must see for Inbetweeners fans, do not miss the 2nd episode with Danny Dyer being a very macho but sensitive Gladiator.

Brilliant.
