This is seriously the best thing I've watched in a long time. Sometimes gruesome. Always amazing. It kind of reminded me of "The Princess Bride" meets "The Royals". I binged it and want a LOT more.
Somehow it's sad that the story of this show has only occasionally any resemblence to historical events. For example Czar Peter wasn't a dimwit at all, they were married for 20 years (they hated each other though) and he was only king for six months until he was toppled and died "under mysterious circumstances". The real life of Catherine the Great was fascinating enough to make a compelling TV show. Why would you chose to turn it into an overly ridiculous fantasy story?
An utterly delightful and absurd romp through "an occasionally true" story of Catherine The Great's rise to power. A powerhouse cast, great visual design and acerbic comedic writing all pull together for an entertaining ride that's short enough to not be tiresome.
Really good series. I wish it had a bit more historical relevance with the dark humor and drama. Either way, it was a joy to watch. Hope there is a Season 2!
This _occasionally true story_ takes its subtitle to mind-boggling levels. Very little is actually historically accurate here, but why though? Wouldn't a historically accurate version have been way more entertaining, needless to say **educating**?! Especially considering that Catherine is all about education, I don't really see the point in making this show so ridiculously historically inaccurate. Pretty much nothing is accurate here, least of all, of course, the casting - it would have been more fun to actually see Russians speaking Russian here, rather than British people not even pretending to be Russian. The show is entertaining, though it drags on a bit towards the end. They either should have moved the events of the final episode in S1 to a much earlier episode, or just have reduced the number of episodes to a maximum of 6-8.
It was amusing at first but quickly started to get repetitive and drag on. Then the ending didn't make much sense nor did it actually go anywhere.
It is insane this show is not more popular. This was a FUCKING TREAT to watch. Holy shit, what a great job everyone did on this.
Trash crude attempt at humour. No history just stupidity
Huzzah! That is all. Now, fuck off.
Unfortunately, the humor is overshadowed by how dark, cruel, and downright disturbing the story is. I'm all for some dark humor, especially when it comes to death. That being said, when the humor is about abuse? That's when I draw a line. I felt myself more horrified and sad by what was happening to Catherine and how she was being treated than anything. On top of it all, you can't count on anything being historically accurate, so it's a bit of a waste of time as you'll have to research what is real and what isn't. I'd skip.
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!
Don’t know about you, but since the lockdown, I have had more free time than ever. Maybe it’s because we did not actually realize how much time we were wasting. So the other day, whilst I was pouring myself a glass of wine, I remembered how much I love and missed genre “Fantasy”. It was my favorite genre since growing up, maybe because I was too much into Avatar, but yeah I miss it. So today let’s talk about best fantasy TV shows.
In times like this, when we’re all trying to stay safe and stay home as much as possible, it is very important to enjoy ourselves and feel relaxed while doing so. Thankfully, we have Netflix to help us out in our quest, but with so many series to choose from, you might spend hours browsing and still not being able to decide! That’s why I made this list to help you out.
I am Sophie and this is my website.
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!
