The Churchmen — Season 1, Episode 1 Recap
The series chronicles five candidates as they arrive at Paris’s Capuchin Seminary.
Despite being a tad overcrowded and a bit formulaic, the opening episode shows promise. The pilot episode has to introduce each of the five students and try to distinguish them in an hour’s time. It’s no surprise under such circumstances that we get a little more exposition than development, a little more telling rather than showing.
