When social upheaval sweeps Russia in the early 20th century, Czar Nicholas II resists change, sparking a revolution and ending a dynasty.
"I thought this was going to be done in the same style as the crown... unfortunately, it was not. Don't get me wrong, this series has potential. I just think the historians narration is wrongly placed. The actors and their dialogue/scenes alone should be able to tell the story. If more is needed, maybe text should have appeared before each episode."
"A truly excellent example of just how badly history can be told. It is honestly of no worth whatsoever."
