If memory helps...
16 January 2006 | by TirogesflairSee all my reviews

I admit I saw this over 25 years ago but recall it wasn't very good. I do remember a scene where the Italian actor playing the Pope Alexander VI (Adolfo Celi) shouted he wanted to see 'Nipples' - but it could well have been 'Naples'. I think it was the former as there was an orgy going on at the time. This series tried to be like 'I Claudius, but lacked focus (and good writing !) and wasn't repeated . In fact the BBC who made this also made the 'The Cleopatras' - which I think was even worse !! It will be interesting to see if there is a change with the Scarlett Johansson/Colin Farrell version which is to go into production soon.
