Has anyone else been watching it? The first two episodes I thought were very good. Jude Law is captivating, and the idea of powerful positions reverting to the super conservative rather than those more progressive is very timely.

The opening was fantastic. That initial homily got me on my feet, cheering. But by the end of episode 2, I was sooooo bored. Ugh! How long can he just sit there talking endlessly, while the lighting is super bright.

Nonetheless I will keep watching, for now.

Plus OMG! The scene where that tall thin priest starts snogging and groping the blonde married women and she reciprocated...

Diane Keaton as Sister Mary is perfect. Supportive, yet strict. Humble, yet commanding.

I'm loving the cinematography, especially the tripping 'dream' scenes.

I have seen the whole season on HBO GO and it's brilliant and surprising.
As a bonus, I've been having a huge crush on Jude Law for ages now. He can be my pope any day of the week! :ijizzed:
