With many thanks to my dear friend Jess, I’ll be adding screencaptures from all four episodes of “Catherine the Great” to the photo gallery over the next few days. In her Golden Globe nominated performance, Helen Mirren dives into Catherine the Great’s extraordinary reign and her passionate love affair that changed the course of Russian history.The four-part miniseries is available on HBO’s demand service until February and can be purchased on DVD and Blu-Ray in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Germany.

Following a palace coup that overthrew her unpopular husband, the Empress of Russia Catherine the Great faces challenges on all sides. Her unfaithful lover Grigory Orlov is trying to force her into an ill-advised marriage, her resentful son Prince Paul is looking for greater political power as he comes of age and enemies are calling for the restoration of former infant emperor Ivan VI, who has been imprisoned for nearly two decades. Seeking to freshen things up, Catherine invites the charismatic Lieutenant Grigory Potemkin to Court and the two instantly connect, with Catherine drawn to Potemkin’s candor, integrity and vision. Later, Catherine must make a difficult decision regarding a disillusioned soldier who looks to oust her as war with the Turks looms.
