5.0 out of 5 stars MARVELOUS...Must See !
By G. on October 19, 2017
Excellent for a 10 episode series. I've read a biography of Catherine the Great. While some artistic liberties were taken in the writing the overall depiction is extraordinary. Production value 10/10 Acting 10/10 Writing 9.9/10 Historically Factual 5/10 (again allow me to stress that this was a 10 episode miniseries and for it to have been historically accurate would be impossible) My highest regard for the writers, producers, director, crew, and actors. I'd ask that anyone who endeavors to watch the series, watch all 10 episodes. I watched it once for visuals. I watched again for subtitles. I will watch it again. Simply marvelous.
