The Great: Season One is a satirical comedic drama about the rise of Catherine the Great (ELLE FANNING). From creator and Academy Award Nominated writer, Tony McNamara, comes a fictionalized, fun and anachronistic story of an idealistic, romantic young girl who honors an arranged marriage to the mercurial Russian Emperor Peter (NICHOLAS HOULT). Instead of love and sunshine, she finds a dangerous, depraved and backward world. Catherine becomes driven to change Russia and fulfill her destiny as the longest-reigning female ruler in Russia’s history. All she has to do is kill her husband, beat the church, baffle the military and get the court on her side.



This 4-disc release comes with a slightly title-embossed slip cover. Features include two behind-the-scenes featurettes — Bold and the Brash: Inside The Great and Palatial Panache: The Style of The Great — as well as a Gag Reel.


VIDEO – 4½/5, AUDIO – 4/5

The Great arrives on DVD and presumably as streamed on Hulu, is presented with a 16×9 enhanced 2.00 widescreen aspect ratio and albeit in standard def, looks rather glorious, with decent detail and vibrant colors. Each episode comes with a standard but effective Dolby Digital 5.1 track outputting clear dialogue.
