Okay, I'm a bit late to the party in tuning into The Chosen. Sue me.
I'm only a couple of episodes into it, and I find it interesting, but...
those Roman helmets!
I hate being that guy who is always pointing out historical inaccuracies in movies, but given the attention to detail, I can't watch scenes with Roman soldier without gritting my teeth.
I mean, on the face of it, they're fine, decent copies of museum pieces. The chrome shine on them is a bit unrealistic, but I'll allow it.
No, the problem is that the cheek pieces just flap around. Um, hello? No one can fight in that kind of gear. The cheek pieces need to be laced together.
I mean, if an ultra-low-budget show like I, Claudius could get the right, surely The Chosen could have figured it out. My hope is that some well-wisher got through to the production team and that withing a few episodes the troops will tie those mud flaps down.
