Yea, the show is great so far. The assassin is probably my favorite so far for just being awesome, though the son in robes is a great character as well. The whole episode with Cem is what sealed it for me.
Also, yay for Machiavelli being in this latest episode.

Watched the last episode last night. Loved this series and hope it comes back... though from what I understand of Alexander's history there's only another season worth of content to go. Flipping through my old world history book, Cezanne had dealings with DaVinci too. wonder if that will come in next year.
Definitely worth the on-demand watch if you like loosely-based-on-history-period-pieces. Lots of roguish action, occasional boobies, 15th century politics and Catholicism, innovative French warfare strats, a trophy room of corpses, and the freaking plague to boot.
