...or, a good start for a serie about the private life of a great tsarina. A sort of drawing or sketch who has, as leading sin, the care, too much care for the political events , using a too familiar recipe who tend to be new. Hellen Mirren gives a beautiful job and the dark aspects of the Imperial Court are well presented , with nice impact for define the period and the games of the reign of Catherine. But , I suppose, a better first episode was more expected by the viewers.
