The Last Czars: Season 1 Reviews

July 8, 2019
An extraordinary sum of money appeared to have been spent on making the facial hair look as awful as possible, including a ratty stick-on beard for Rasputin, who looked like a retired rapist goalkeeper.

A stylish production abetted by commentary from historians of the Romanov period, The Last Czars, created by Nutopia, seamlessly blends remarkably detailed history with captivating dramatization. That's no small achievement.

The Last Czars aspires to a laughable objectivity suitable to a documentary, at the same time that it alters historical facts and turns its characters into caricatures. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's random enough to be entertaining... It hits a sweet spot familiar to anyone who got drawn into the History Channel late at night as a tween.

it's basically a mediocre History Channel show. Tonally, it's just bizarre, and after watching a series like Chernobyl, The Last Czars is basically like following a dinner at a James Beard Award-winning restaurant with a trip to Taco Bell.

The hybrid format of The Last Czars takes some getting used to, but the performances are good enough to make you forget about some of this show's cheesier aspects and get into how Nicholas II makes the mistakes that lead to his banishment.

It's all completely formulaic and the wider question of our ongoing fascination with the Romanovs is set to one side across six one-hour episodes. But it is also delivered with top-rate razzle-dazzle.
