If you share my passion for period pieces and costume dramas then by all means do not miss “The Borgias” which premiered just recently on SHOWTIME. The success and the end of “The Tudors” got the network to develop a similar style of series, this time about the history’s most infamous Pope Alexander VI, his crime family and their reign of corruption.
Jeremy Irons is as expected brilliant in his portrayal of the scandalous Pope and the rest of the cast configure around his excellence excellently. In other words, do not miss this epic crime story of the house of Borgia which inspired Mario Puzo’s “The Godfather”! By the way, if you happen to be a gamer then I’m sure you are familiar with Cesare Borgia from Assassin’s Creed II!
