So today I was sitting in my living room watching whatever was on TV before we left to leave. I was sitting there for about a minute or so, then a commercial came on. It was a preview for an upcoming show.

I noticed some similar time settings to AC Brotherhood. It reminded me of AC Brotherhood from the start. I didn't think it was anything to do with AC Brotherhood, it just put me in mind of it you know.

Then it says "The Borgia's". I immediately thought of AC Brotherhood. Looked it up on Wikipedia, and check out the cast and characters:


Jeremy Irons - Pope Alexander VI Pope Alexander VI
François Arnaud - Cesare Borgia
Holliday Grainger - Lucrezia Borgia
Joanne Whalley - Vannozza dei Cattanei
Lotte Verbeek - Giulia Farnese
David Oakes - Juan Borgia
Sean Harris - Miguel de Corella
Simon McBurney - Johannes Burchard
Derek Jacobi - Orsino Orsini (real counterpart: Gian Battista Orsini)
Aidan Alexander - Gioffre Borgia
Colm Feore - Giuliano della Rovere (later Pope Julius II)
[edit]Supporting Cast
Ruta Gedmintas - Ursula Bonadeo (fictional character)
Elyes Gabel - Prince Djem
Montserrat Lombard - Maria
Vernon Dobtcheff - Cardinal Julius Verscucci
Bosco Hogan - Alessandro Piccolomini (later Pope Pius III) (real counterpart: Francesco Piccolomini)
Peter Sullivan - Ascanio Sforza
David Lowe - French Ambassador

A show about the Borgia Family? That sounds cool. But I never watch TV, so I doubt I'll see this. I know it has nothing to do with AC at all, but I thought this still pretty interesting.

We left a few minutes later. On the way to where we was going, I began thinking "What if Ezio was in it? Haha! What if Machiavelli was in it?" I began thinking a lot of stuff. Pretty cool.

I can't wait for the 2nd season of The Borgias. I began watching this after finishing The Tudors. Both are awesome shows.
