DN - one of the most reputable swedish newpapers - writes in a review of the TV-series "Rome"


Året är 52 f Kr, och Gajus Julius Caesar är just i färd med att kuppa till sig den diktatoriska makten i världens mäktigaste stat, det romerska riket (stor krigare som till slut kanske blev mest känd för den julianska kalendern - säg, är det inte ett ironiskt litet löje?!).


(or - slightly free translation by me)


It is the year 52 b.C., and Gaius Julius Caesar is just about to grab the dictatorial power of the mightiest state of the world, the roman empire (large warrior who eventually was maybe most well-known due to the Julian calendar - isn't it ironic?!).


Now ... the Julian calendar being the main thing you'd remember upon hearing of Gaius Julius Caesar? Say what?

And it's not even as if the reviewer doesn't know the Asterix comic - he refers to a character in the series behaving like Obelix just a few paragraphs later.

What are these people smoking?
