    I would give the series a 10/10...but the kangaroo died halfway through so 0/10.

    This was a great series. I hope the second season has at least one woman reviewing it.

    It was nice to see Tim Frisch show some humility and diplomacy in his review of this series. I watched some Walking Dead reviews where he acted like the most pretentious arrogant douchebag on the planet.  So, perhaps someone who doesn't have such a strong bias against Walking Dead should be reviewing that show instead.  The young pope was a good watch but had flaws in the story telling, believability of certain characters including the Pope himself and lack of a central focus.  I think Jude Law was a miscast, not because he isn't American, but because he is too much of an aristocrat, upper class , snob to pull off a working class orphan, rags to riches pope, who butts heads with the aristocratic elitism inhabiting the Vatican.  He would have been more suited to playing one of the snobbish Cardinals than the antithesis.  He can play the American roles where the character is upper class well enough, but he has this silver spoon up his ass and it comes out in every role he tries to play.  I think they would have been far better off with a more down to earth nitty gritty no-nonsense actor to play this role.  That is just my opinion of course, I still enjoyed the series.

    people in the comments gave a better analysis of this episode than these two guys. They are pretty much just saying that they are confused about a lot of things in the show, but show no real analysis on the context of those scenes. they are almost showing that they have no real knowledge on film making, or any capability of seeing deeper into this show than just what's on the surface. it's sad that other people with less viewers have more talent than this show.

    Mr. Duralde is so blinded by his fervent anti-Catholicism that he can't see the forest for the trees. I don't love the Church, as I'm a lapsed Catholic but to state that Lenny is just a jerk is huuuuge oversimplification. You Americans are so shallow.

    I think people who have read the Bible and are familiar with the Catechism of the Catholic Church and church history get the most out of this show.

    Also, what do people think about the scene where Lenny told Gutierrez that he doesn't believe in God because people who believe in God believe in nothing?
