Like, okay, it's a comedy, so the ending is supposed to be happy, right? Except that Mariana is married to a dick and Isabella is being pursued by another dick, possibly (probably?) against her will, and it's not my favourite.
I like the idea of a disguised ruler and the fallout that comes from that, plus the ethical considerations, so I did enjoy the premise and the exploration there. But overall, I think a lot of the humour got lost in the fact that I do not live in Vienna in 1603.
