    The Anacleti clan is based on the very real Casamonica Clan.

    This is one of their houses seized by the police.

    I despise gold, its tacky looking and worn mostly by chavs with zero taste.My wedding ring is white gold by choice.
    but this stuff you posted is even worse than gold.

    It screams common and criminal, let alone their lack of any taste or sense of style.

    Yikes, that's gaudy. Is this what a rich family does when they become hoarders?

    At least it seems like the Royals have more restraint.

    finished season one of this and enjoyed it a lot.
    I like how Lele and Aureliano both disposed of each others fathers, although you can make an argument for Aureliano's reasons, Lele is a devious little shit who would sell anyone out, and even when his father was killed he hid, when he knew who did it. If my father was killed I would not be hiding, I would be getting the guy who did it.
    Spadino might be more likable if he did not treat his new wife like dirt seeing as she was forced into the marriage as much as him.
    Sara is a manipulative bitch.

    The most interesting character is how Amadeo progresses as the series goes on, and samurai whilst the worst of them all is in a predicament but then criminals are hard to feel sorry for.
    Livia is another decent character,
    The most fucked up thing is the gypsy scum who went to kill aureliano ended up dead and the gypsys are crying for revenge, for something they instigated.

    Bloodlines had a terrific twist that made it interesting after a predictable opening, but didn’t deliver after.

    Unfortunately something similar happened in real life too. Movies often present criminals to us as cold and calculating geniuses, but in reality they are often just people with no restraints and inhibitions who listen only to their worst instincts. And often those who think that the laws are only for the stupid and weak get the better of honest people, without being particularly bright or shrewd.

    By the way, second season? :)

    EDIT: I believe that the plural of "gypsy" is "gypsies" :)

    a few episodes in to season 2.

    Aureliano looks taller with the natural hair color and beard for some reason.
    Samurai killing livia was a stupid thing, then most criminals are stupid as most get killed or end up in prison.
    Killing lLivia meant Aureliano had no family or partners so was on his own which makes a person even more dangerous as they have nothing to lose.

    I like how the Vatican are portrayed as mean cynical , thieving bastards preying on the minds of the mentally ill....which is basically what they do in reality.

    finished season 2 last night.....and my main thought was why is there only one short season left, and i hope season 3 does it justice as its been an awesome show.

    not sorry to see the end of lele

    I confirm the the third season is definitely the last. I have no idea what source this site is using.
