The Cardinal

(Recovered from Facebook.)
I have this idea for a TV show.

You start with a character who is as brilliant, and as arrogant, as Sherlock Holmes.

Throw in political machinations that put "Game of Thrones" to shame.

Season with the current fashion to reframe traditional villains as heroes.

And then remember that the whole thing is pretty much historical.

It's called, "Richelieu"...

(And by the way, I have now seen TWO episodes of the current, "The Musketeers", and still think it is wonderful. But I would love, sometime, to see the Cardinal presented as the hero he really was...)
