This was a great disappointment. I understand that to condense an expansive life into a 4 part TV series requires selective content and a seminole focus but to define Catherine the Great's life by a fabricated love story was just too hard for me to stomach. I'm a huge Helen Mirrren fan but there was just no motivation for her character nor chemistry with her co-star Jason Clarke. What a waste of talent. What a deconstruction of history. What a disappointment. I give the series a 5 (meh) out of 10. [Historical? Drama]
Obviously Helen Mirren is great, she can do any role. The story is great and I saw all four episodes at once because you want to see more. Very very nice
Catherine had Paul when she was 24 (I think), which means, she would have been around 44 for his 20th birthday. As great as Helen Mirren is as an actress, why on Earth did they cast a 70 year-old lady to play a 40 year-old (and knowing Catherine died in her sixties)? I don't know if Paul had any living grandparents by the time he reached 20, but Helen would have been more believable and better casted as his grandmother than as Catherine. Also, Jason Clarke as a heartthrob? I'm sorry, but I don't see it. There are plenty of older, handsome british men. I just don't think he is one of them. I feel like they messed up the whole thing by doing bad casting choices. A pity.
Isn’t it great when your favorite TV show has characters from all over the world? A lovely Spanish or a funny Indian accent can always make a show interesting but cultural presentation is what brings awe to the viewers life. I am presenting you with the three best TV shows that will add colors to your to-watch list!
Like I mentioned before, during these times, you have to be able to relax and is there a better way than sitting back and binging on a really good series? I don’t think so! We’ve already covered some series that are available on Netflix, but what about other services? Well, now we’re going to see what Hulu has to offer.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.
But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈
I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…
I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
