Borgias, The (2012)

I’ve been hooked on this series about the notorious Borgia Pope Alexander VI. It’s a soap opera in 1495, which uncannily probably isn’t much different than what was going on. Really though, Roderic Borgia’s reputation is mostly drawn from his enemies and Protestants. No historical evidence exists to the Borgia’s were guilty of being poisoners, having incest or being anything more than nepotist. The next two Popes said Alexander VI was the best Pope since St. Peter. That wouldn’t make an interesting TV show though. It’s a well done yarn with good acting and production values.

Not for kids.

Sorry. Only one episode for free from Showtime :(

The other bounty I get from Amazon is a buck if I can get you to download their free book reader. This shouldn't confront you at all. It's just a book reader. A pretty nice one actually.
