Storyline

Under the papacy of Sir John Brannox under the name of John Paul III, Vatican tries to clean its good name after a series of sexual scandals that jeopardized the institution itself. But an unexpected trouble threatens John Paul III when Lenny Belardo, the previous Pope Pius XIII who was in a coma from nine months ago after to suffer a heart attack while he was celebrating a mass, wakes up to claim his place as the legitimate Pope of Rome. The news about Pius XIII's comeback shocks the Christianity, turning the admiration of millions of believers in true idolatry for the returned Pope. Given the unusual situation of two Popes in the Vatican at the same time, it unleashes an inner war between Pius XII and John Paul III, the first to recover his power, and the second to keep it.

Pure genius
26 January 2020 | by ehudmi1See all my reviews

The dismissive critics have no clue. This genius campy series discusses the issues of power and faith in the modern world of angst and loss and loneliness. The breakdown of modern society brought on by the rise of mass media and the utter ruthlessness of current world leaders reducing democracy to a sham is being ridiculed in an artistic manner. And where is god in all of that? That is the question all the characters struggle with. Brilliant dialogues. A must watch must ask yourself questions type of series... P.s... Had to add. Just finished episode 9. So many emotional moments during the last 3 episodes. The series is truly a work of love for belief and man and god. It doesn't need to im be reverent to truly reflect the positive elements of belief and being human. Almost to the contrary - using human frailty, vice and stupidity it is a celebration of what being human is all about and if i were the Catholic Church this would be the best promotion ever
