" It's death to settle for things in life"-Pope Pius XIII aka Lenny Berlardo This is a different kind of show but a very good one. It is character-driven but very intriguing. Elements of humor, morality, darkness, and love combined with the wonderful cinematography make this show unique and extraordinary. Whether religious or not (I myself am not), this show is worth watching. Don't settle for your typical tv show. " It's death to settle for things in life" in accordance with Pope Pius XIII. Amen.

Jude Law is amazing in this. I was reluctant to watch this because I was afraid of being disappointed. I'm glad I watched it. Sadly there's only 1 season.

Dull, too surrealistic, Jude Law is awful in this.
