Review of "The Romanoffs" 3/7/18 by Suzanne
airs now on Amazon Prime

This is an anthology series, and I only watched the first episode. I did like it, and I will want to see the rest of the episodes at some point.  Each episode is about a different person, or group of people, but they are all loosely connected via their relation to the Romanoff family.  The characters and dialogue are very interesting, since it's written by "Mad Men"'s Matthew Weiner. You'll recognize many famous actors, such as Aaron Eckhardt, Diane Lane, John Slattery, Katheryn Hahn, Christina Hendricks, Amanda Peet, Corey Stoll, Jon Tenney, and more.

In the first episode, we see the family dynamics of an old, outspoken woman (Marthe Keller), and her nephew, Greg (Eckhart) who's like her son. She lives in a lavish apartment. He's hired an agency, who keeps sending women to take care of her, but she keeps insulting them until they go away. He and his girlfriend, Sophie (Louise Bourgoin), are waiting for the old lady to die, so that they can get the nice apartment (or sell it).  However, the nephew does love his aunt, even though she doesn't treat him so well.  One of the women that is hired to cook and clean for his aunt, a Muslim woman, is very intriguing and becomes her friend. The story is very interesting. I can't wait to watch the rest.


From the creator of Mad Men, The Romanoffs is a contemporary anthology series set around the globe featuring eight separate stories about people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family (Romanovs). Starring Aaron Eckhart, Diane Lane, Isabelle Huppert, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Amanda Peet, Jack Huston, Kathryn Hahn, Noah Wyle, Paul Reiser, Andrew Rannells and more.
