The discussion on here is actually making me less interested in The Young Pope. I thought it would just be about how they elected some random guy for pope and he turned out to be insane. But people are talking about “questions of faith” and “emotional impact” and comparisons to Mad Men, which is all worrying me!
When it was first airing my mom taped every episode for me because she thought I might like it, but I never actually watched it (out of laziness, not because I didn’t want to). Like Exodus, I am not super into religious content, but I thought the show used Catholicism more as an aesthetic the way a horror movie does rather than raising actual religious questions. But now seeing what people are saying about it, maybe I’m wrong.
