So, I've been watching Borgia (Not to be confused with The Borgias starring Jeremy Irons, though dealing with the same subject) and completed the first season. It was good, but there was something a bit off in it in terms of acting. Felt stiff in places. Starting the second season, I see it's been heavily retooled, and wow is it ever a difference. Everything about it feels better, from the cameras, the sets, and the acting. It actually feels like a completely different show, even with the changes to the cameras alone, with the cameras being manipulated to have a more cinematic feel. And they also have scenes outdoors now with natural lighting, whereas in the first season, it all felt like it was done on a soundstage with less flexible camera arrangements. Retooling doesn't always work, but I think with the right circumstances, can make a show even better in a case like this. With a retooling, this series became dramatically different for all the right purposes.
