Dividing Bar

Okay, I've only just begun watching this, but... A Jewish father and son are invited to dine at the home of a Gentile and the host serves them sea-snails - can you imagine any behaviour more insulting to a Jewish guest?!! The main girl character in the piece I find a little irritating. She has very 21st century attitudes as well - plenty of handwringing about slaves, and wanting to treat a slave as a friend. Yeah, right. Oh, and apparently people bathe (and swim) fully clothed as well. Basically, in terms of historical verisimilitude, it's sheer nonsense. Having said that... It is entertaining, in a funny way, and Harry Stott and Eli Machover are very likable as Lupus and Jonathan respectively. Just think of it as 21st century kids in Roman togs.
