The Romanoffs: Season 1 (2018)



Critic Consensus: Matthew Weiner's return to television is as handsomely made as it is ambitious and sprawling -- unfortunately, it's also fatally indulgent, asking for the utmost patience from audiences without a compelling incentive.

I stuck up for "The Romanoffs" through episode four, even claiming that the show's unevenness - which a majority of less-impressed critics were emphasizing in their reviews - was part of its individualistic charm. But then disappointment set in.

So far, The Romanoffs is beautiful to look at , but the rest of the qualities that made Mad Men so great remain elusive.

And yet, when it works, the series can be fascinating.

Where the various descendants of the Romanovs have misplaced delusions of grandeur, so, too, does Weiner, who... has instead birthed a too-long mess of incoherence and questions that I don't care enough about to get answered.

Banish thoughts of Mad Men and The Romanoffs is perfectly enjoyable on its own terms.

Like its characters, the show continuously puts its worst, least interesting foot forward, aristocratically expecting you'll stick around to see the next step.
