Matthew Weiner's 'The Romanoffs' completely miscalculates the appeal of the anthology series

But instead, the moral of the episode, which runs 84 minutes and is spoken mostly in French, seems to be that a young Muslim health care worker (Inès Melab) can cure racism by making edible eggs and saving the old lady’s dog from drowning. It would border on offensive if it weren’t so mind-numbingly boring, highlighted by Eckart’s Greg, who couldn’t buy a personality with all the money he makes running his hotel — which, by the way, doesn’t attract a high enough class of people for his girlfriend’s liking, despite the fact that there’s no air conditioning or hot water.
