A show that comes from Showtime is going to have the class, intrigue, mystery and overall sheer awesomeness that is involved with the network. The Borgias is a historical drama that made me actually root for the couple that shouldnt even be considered a couple - fans of the show know that i am talking about Caesare and Lucrezia! ;) Jeremy Irons who voiced Scar in the Lion King delivers a wonderful performance that i salute, sir. the sets, the outfits the story, intrigue, murder and betrayal and twists and turns of this show were perfect. i felt the story was going to be developed but it ended, however, well cased and everyone did their part in making it a beautiful period drama and gave a stunning insight to the Church mafia.
