| Not for everyone
This new series is CLEARLY intended for a "certain" kind of audience - people complaining about Malkovich and how "slow" and "boring" the first episodes are, simply can't understand what they're missing. Outstanding visuals, outstanding dialogues, oustanding acting - a deep, provocative (but not offensive) well-thought portrait of the marvelous complexity of the Christian (and not only Christian) Church in the 21st Century. Please, try to watch it until the very last second of the last episode (a true masterpiece of an episode!): because it gets better and better, and all makes sense as a whole. If you left the series after ep. 1 or even 2/3, your vote simply doesn't mean anything.
