i guess one would have guessed anything with jeremy iron would be disappointingly full of sex scenes and not enough plots. or is it the writer to blame? it was good to start with. a waste of a good story and some of the cast are fantastic. really it could be done more tastefully. a bit less breasts would have been better.
if you disagree with me, you can count the partions of sex scenes vs other kind of scenes. it is more than 30%. even corruption of bad clergies ( which i am no fans of) could have told of their treacheries with less sex scenes
