The Daily Beast
May 14, 2020 Against all expectations I had for the show (10 hours of Russian history, sans any tonal context, sounds like a miserable slog), it is a total, breezy delight.Read in Source
May 13, 2020 The Great is a showcase for McNamara's sparkling dialogue, which draws attention to the writing of history itself in exciting ways.Read in Source
May 14, 2020 Reality is rarely as funny as this sparkling period satire, set in mid-18th century Russia amid a sneaky coup d'état that plays out like a Scooby gang caper (with wigs).Read in Source
May 14, 2020 "The Great" grows tediously and even torturously long - which may be its cruelest joke of all, as its appreciable style and sass surrender to repetitious rounds of palace intrigue.Read in Source
Sydney Morning Herald
May 14, 2020 There's a singular darkness to The Great that will startle viewers... There are moments of terror and horror, too, and an enthusiastically cavalier approach to historical detail that adds to a sense of heightened reality.Read in Source

May 13, 2020 A historical treat that lives up to its title. Both sweet and acerbic, it's as bingeable as Catherine's macarons and Peter's vodka. Huzzah!Read in Source
Consequence of Sound
May 14, 2020 Coupled with overly long episode run times, The Great loses steam in the middle. Catherine's triumphant moment of becoming falls victim to too predictable romance.Read in Source
