Pirated it as it was on in Europe earlier this year. I thought it was good.

Edit: I also got a warning from Comcast for one of the episodes, so I'm not sure I'd recommend doing the same if you've gotten any in the past.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

It is super weird, but there was this smoking hot Greenland Prime Minister in the last episode, and at the end of it, they had a shot of her dancing in the Vatican while the credits rolled.

Of course it made it to the internet.

I tried to watch it again. Nope. Nothing there. My wife, who loves Jude Law, thought it was fucking boring too

I'm a fan of Jude Law as well but I couldn't make it through the first episode. Really into Taboo and I just started watching Community. I never got into it when it first came out but I'm enjoying it.

It is a David Lynch documentary of the Vatican.

I think because I am currently reading The Name of the Rose, which involves the Pope and insider information on the Vatican, that I'm finding it interesting.

That book sounds interesting. I'll have to check it out.

These two videos watched together is pretty much the core of what is freaky about the show.

"Freaky" is adolescent.

Repressed sexuality is the Ur topic for you feminized shitlibs. It's typical, open up the field for actual sexual encounters of any kind (well not kiddies yet!) and then obsess over depictions of past restraint (mad men etc). All you want is transgression, not the freedom. You are adolescents.

I like hot Icelandic-looking women that like to dance, if that is what you are asking.

Reading history of the church during the inquisition is both fascinating and reveals why Christianity has splintered. The Catholic Church was nothing like a benevolent organization until recently, and even then, it allows individuals the capacity to be benevolent while it still sits in the Vatican like an ancient, terrible, venomous spider
