    Re: The Borgias on Showtime

    If you have On Demand channels, you can see the first episode (slightly edited) on the Showtime Freeview channel. On my Time Warner system, it's on the group of channels called Entertainment on Demand. For the editing, they have a big beige "ball" hiding the opening sex scenes! Tee-hee. Enjoy!

    Oh, and as the name implies, it's free!

    I enjoyed the show, although my husband found it a bit boring. I looked up the real Borgia family, and they really were quite evil, maybe even worse than protrayed on the show. Of course, given time, I'm sure the show will catch up.

    I watched the first episode and just couldn't get into it. No more for me. I deleted it from the DVR. There are so many good shows on...I can be picky.

    I think this series is very well done. The writing is good, the cast is great, scenery/props/costumes all amazing. So why is it that I don't look forward to watching it?

    Maybe because the story of the Borgias is still shocking/gross even to the 21st century audience.

    People of the time period with money and power were a blood thirsty lot. We, in this day and age, hardly corner the market on horrible behavior.

    If I recall correctly, there was a Borgia series on A&E in '85 or '86 that was really good. That was back when A&E actually *did* arts programming--high quality dramas and ballet (OMG!) come to mind. Now so much of what's on is mindless drivel. Can we say "Dog the Bounty Hunter" or "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" among others?
