New to HBO: The Young Pope
It’s an HBO production. Jude Law stars. It’s as ridiculous as it sounds, but knows it. And you can stream the first episode free online whether you have an HBO account or not. You have pretty much no excuse not to give The Young Pope a watch.
The 10-part series premiered last night on HBO, and the powerhouse network will air new episodes every Sunday and Monday. With the first episode airing last night, there’s low bar for committing to the show since you can dip your toe in the papal waters and watch last night’s episode online for free without an HBO login.
You’re missing out if you don’t have it. Download the StreamSavvy mobile app FREE right now.
Without giving it all away, the cigarette-smoking, Lenny Belardo (Jude Law) must win the political game of Vatican City after being chosen as the next Pope, Pius XIII. He shakes up the Vatican by moving to reject both the public eye and the liberal wold view of his predecessor. After you hit up the first show online for free, the second episode airs tonight. (HBO 8/7c)
