Plebs - Series 2 DVD


All roads lead to Rome for the return of the multi-award winning comedy PLEBS in a brand new eight part series. Since series one the world has progressed (from 27BC to 26BC) but flat-mates Marcus (Tom Rosenthal) Stylax (Joel Fry) and slave Grumio (Ryan Sampson) have made no strides whatsoever. Marcus' ongoing crush Cynthia (Sophie Coliquhoun) is still ignoring his advances with her own slave Metella (Lydia Rose Bewley) on hand with a sarcastic quip to keep him at bay. Stylax wants Marcus to move on so that they can realize their dreams of being 'the big men of... Rome'. For Stylax this also means becoming a champion charioteer. Who cares if he can't drive? Their fearsome boss Flavia (Doon Mackichan) and water-pouring colleague Aurelius (Tom Basden) torment them at work. While at home business is booming for dodgy Landlord (Karl Theobald) who is now accompanied by massive henchman Davus (Tom Davis). A modern comedy in an ancient setting. Follow the antics of these three under achievers on their desperate quest to live the 'when in Rome' maxim to the full. Featuring special Guest Stars Simon Callow Shaun Williamson Neil Stuke Lauren Socha Tim Key James Fleet and Paul Ritter. [show more]

All eight episodes from the second series of the TV comedy following the exploits of three young men in ancient Rome. Whilst others revel in the grandeur, opulence and splendour of Rome, low-on-the-totem-pole Marcus (Tom Rosenthal), Stylax (Joel Fry) and their apathetic slave Grumio (Ryan Sampson) are more interested in doing what lads the world over do - which usually involves women. The episodes are: 'The Chariot', 'The Best Men', 'The Baby', 'The Patron', 'The New Slave', 'The Candidate', 'The Phallus' and 'The Race'.
