I'd Hoped for Something Better
12 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After watching the opening sex scene I thought, "oh no, another soap opera." I did watch the full first episode and was disappointed but thought I'd give it a second chance and watched episode 2 but by the end of that one I knew there was no redemption for this dross. Pure Hollywood soap opera, more about Einstein's love life than any of his theories and discoveries. The actor that played young Einstein was terrible and I have to wonder if that was his lack of ability or the director's wanting to dumb down the story for the typical American audience. Two episodes was all I could stomach.
