New series coming out soon based on the Borgia family from rennisance Italy is coming to HBO. Saw a preview the other day.
My wife smiles, looks at me (knowing the AC dork that I am), and says, "We'll be watching that won't we?"
Yes, yes we will.
Looks good.

Its on Showtime, and I kept hoping Ezio would show up. It made me think how sweet an AC TV series would be if they had this quality of production.

My HBO doesn't have it. It's on Showtime, 4/9 at 9pm Central though.

Oops, It's on Shotime, thanks for the correction. Starts this sunday. Looks pretty good.
Would be sweet, but HIGHLY doubt that there will be any Ezio appearance/mention or anything to do with our beloved AC.

I already saw the first episode and it was great, so I think we'll have a great series.

Will this be airing in the UK? I know Rome (great series!) was HBO, and that aired in the UK, on BBC even.

Watching the Pilot right now, awesome! The aerial view on Rome from the beginning seemed like taken straight from the game. Again, great graphics work, devs http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

just seen the pilot and it's very good...the whole plot and conspiracies are very similar to how they were portrayed in the game.

I will!
I'm in episode 4 right now.
Pretty awesome so far.

But Cesare is still a cardinal http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I wanna see badass papal army general Cesare Borgia http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hopefully Ezio shows up to kill him http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

It is awesome so far. I would laugh if a character named Ezio Auditore showed up on it.

The Borgias are portrayed as the protagonists. Rodrigo is corrupt, obviously. Though not to the degree he was portrayed in the game.

Cesare so far seems to be a good guy. You actually can't help but like him on the show. He's not depicted as the deranged psychopath that the game (and real history) have made him out to be. I wonder if an Anakin-style turn to the dark side is in store for Cesare? He's still a cardinal and has not assumed his role as a condittiero/head of the Papal Armies.

I tried to get my wife to watch it with me. She won't. It's too intense and would give her nightmares. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I saw all 4 episodes and I have to say that I really enjoy watching this series. Since I don't have Showtime (which sucks). I have to watch till it's uploaded on YT.

I'm glad they made a TV series of the Borgia family because every since I finished ACB, I still feeling there's a lot of left out information that happen. I can't wait to see when Cesare becomes the badass general that we know.

I have watched the first 3 episodes I believe possibly first 4 so far pretty good. I am kinda wondering about the assassin that Cesare has because of his name. I keep feeling with all the info we have gone through in the AC franchise that we might have seen his name somewhere already.

You're talking about Micheletto? He was indeed in AC:B. He was hired by Cesare to kill Pietro during a play in the Coleseum.

I enjoy the serie so far and for those who can't watch the episodes, try http://borgias.bravo.ca/TheBorgias/Episode-Guide.aspx and click on videos. It's working for me (I live in Canada) and maybe it works for everyone else?
