Amidst scandal, intrigue and immense conflict, Russian Czarina Catherine the Great (Dame Helen Mirren) develops a unique and devoted relationship with Grigory Potemkin (Jason Clarke) as they overcome their adversaries and serve as the architects of modern-day Russia.
I can't believe I'm saying this about a period drama set in 18th century Russia, with helen mirren & lots of sex scenes, but what a dull pile of durge. No chemistry between the actors, scripts fall way short of being even remotely interesting; just so boring. How can anyone make Catherine the great's story so blah?! That in itself is quite the feat. Plus notes.....great sets and costumes. Such a shame as I was so looking forward to this. Helen's age being a lot older than Catherine's at the time was not a bad thing for me either-more 'older' women should get the juicy tv roles. Just make the shows decent.
