Oh dear, I don't know if it was the accents or the beautiful sets and costumes but I loved this show! I got super into it, it was the perfect amount of romance and intrigue.

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.

I watched first 2 episodes of this show and then first 2 eps of Borgia (dir.Tom Fontana); and I could'nt stop watching the latter(Fontana' s version ) till the end , as it is the first show that got me binging obsessively. So outta 2 stars that I've given,one is for Sir Jeremy Irons and other is for costumes. So much for an exquisite and enthralling version...go check Borgia (canal+) all season eps are in english!

A great period piece. The characters are great and intriguing. I loved every storyline and I am incredibly sad it is finished. Even more so because of the unresolved stories in the end.

Besides 'Dungeons & Dragons', my favorite film/series starring Jeremy Irons. Seriously, though, Irons spearheaded a very talented cast, with many players I didn't know before, and many I have come to really admire (Sean Harris (!!!), Colm Feore, and Gina McKee).

SPOILERS
Obviously, I'm miffed like everyone else that the series ends before we see the eventual downfall of the Borgia papal dynasty-to-be. Here's hoping Showtime eventually ends the series with a standalone movie or mini-series.

Finished: August 18, 2016.

I never thought I was a big period drama watcher but turns out I really like them. It took a while but I finally finished The Borgias. Not being a history buff means I wasn't hung up on right or wrong facts. The costumes, cinematography and story made it a viewing pleasure.
