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


John Brannox has a quite interesting collection of 18th century Venice landscapes made by Canaletto and other painters of late baroque. You can see it in third episode, at the time of his rejection.
