"The First American Pope," starring Jude Law. Well, I guess this is how he gets us back for casting RDJ as "The greatest British detective."
Saw this promo last night and, seriously though, this looks like it has a ton of potential. Damn you @airik625, stop recommending new shows to me! You know I have enough on my plate already.
At least you have some time to catch up on everything else before this premieres haha.
I just saw the promo for this and honestly I couldn't tell if it was supposed to be a joke or not. "You're going to be a terrible pope. The worst." What a line. This looks so corny that it might just be good. Great even.
I can't stop saying Young Pope like Young Folks but apparently this is actually good
Supposed to be good. Maybe I'll check it out.
Jude Law is a great actor, so I can't wait to check this out. Hope it's good.
this looks so cheesy that it'll be great
Has me super interested in this
yeah this is gonna be great one way or another
Omg I am so excited for this
Jude Law Reacts to 'Young Pope' Memes
This is already available if you know where to look. Aired overseas already.
First episode was good. Looking forward to seeing where this goes.
i'm surprisingly excited for this
This mole is already bugging me.
Well this was majestic.
Guess all those "clever" Twitter jokes aren't so funny now that the show turned out to be pretty good. And also one of the most self-aware shows I've seen recently. As that article posted above put it so well:
"The show instantly renders all jokes obsolete, because they’re no longer required to inject a sense of fun. Young Pope, the punch line, has to be humorless and stiff to make for optimal target practice, with an ego inflated enough to puncture. Young Pope, the genuine article, has already beaten you to the joke. It’s still internet catnip, just of a different, less accidental nature."
Is this supposed to be about Trump?
i see like maybe a 3% chance of that. seems pretty definitively not what they're doing.
I don't think it's intentional, but the parallels are certainly there.
Man the Young Pope is kind of a dick, huh?
This show is cool
the Invisible Pope and Banksy speeches were great
i'm still not sure what i'm watching, hah. we'll see
