I'm amazed that despite having seen many Catherine the Great documentaries already that this one could still be so interesting and informative. I thoroughly enjoy all The People Profiles videos, especially the ones about monarchs of old. Please keep up the great work!

The fact that she deposed her husband doesn't make her a power hungry tyrant. On the contrary, by doing that she elevated the Russian Empire due to her reforms and successful military campaings against her neighbours.
On the other hand, I can't judge her for her private life. As Terry Thomas said (see down below), how can you judge her for doing that when different Kings or Emperors had mistresses? One thing is for certain, if you got her on her good side, then you're set for life especially if you were a poor bloke that knew how to please her both inside and outside her chamber.

P.S.: I apologize for any mistakes I made when I wrote my comment. English is not my native language and I don't speak it fluently.

She argued against plebeians having an education... and she was one of the more enlightened monarchs of her time?

I was very pleased that the commentator attributed Tsar Paul Petrovich's birth to Catherine's infantile husband and not to her first recorded lover. It makes absolute sense: there was the very strong physical resemblance to the murdered Tsar, and it was well within Catherine's spitefulness towards her heir to have ascribed his birth to a lover. Her second, illegitimate, son - Alexei Bobrinsky - was smuggled away at birth and Catherine never made any effort to see him. That devolved upon her heir: when Paul came to the throne he sought out Alexei, calling him brother, and they had a very natural and kind relationship.
