Editorial Reviews

The Borgias is a one-hour drama series based on the infamous Italian Renaissance family The Borgias. Jeremy Irons stars as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of The Borgia family who ascends to the highest circles of power within Renaissance-era Italy. The series begins as the family's patriarch Rodrigo becomes Pope, propelling him, his two Machiavellian sons Cesare and Juan, and his scandalously beautiful daughter, Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance. And all the power and influence eventually leads to their demise.

Overall this is a great series, the plot lines and acting are fabulous. There are some funny parts and some things that are far more taboo now than they were back then. But this series has about as much basis in reality as a tabloid does. I did some research and the real Borgia Pope had about 8 or 9 children, at least. But, Lucrezia, Cesare, and Juan were his 3 favorites and they were by the same woman, Vanozza. Aside from that and some other things like the fact that Cesare was a lot like his father and Juan was a wastrel, there isn't a lot fact in this series.

After the first season it appears that the writers didn't know where to go with it so they focused, primarily, on the evolution of Lucrezia. She was one of the, if not the most well known of her siblings and she had the most potential for character development and growth. They also focused on the relationship between Lucrezia, her various lovers, loves, and suitors, as well as her family. They also focused on the characters who had the most potential for controversy, like Juan's self-destructive behavior and Cesare becoming more like his father in some ways, but with different personal ambitions. In other ways Cesare doesn't allow himself to become like his father. That is because he has seen how many enemies being like his father will and have gained him.

Overall, this is a GREAT SERIES WORTH WATCHING! I DO NOT RECCOMMEND IT TO CHILDREN! There is some minor graphic nudity and sexually explicit scenes. There is also a LOT of graphic VIOLENCE.

I absolutely adore this series, but the season 2 disks have flaws. All but episodes 2 and 5 have white lines at the top of the screen. Season one has the same white lines on some of the menu screens, but they don't really bother me since they're just menu screens. Amazon sent a replacement set, but it has the same flaws in all of the disks too! Also beware, this is not a special boxed set of the three seasons. This is simply all three seasons shrink wrapped together. There's nothing different about them than the three sesasons that are sold sparately. In fact, at the time that I bought these, the separate seasons cost about $25 each, whereas this set cost over $100. I would have saved money if I'd ordered each season separately.

I've always been a fan of period pieces. We've been led to believe that the Borgia's we evil and depraved but this series gives you another perspective and you can see that this family were people of their times. I can see why Cesare and Lucrezia trusted and loved each other. I'm SO disappointed the series was cancelled. Regina Maxim

“The Borgias,” Neil Jordan’s one time dream of a movie turned providentially into a Showtime three season series, isn’t altogether faithful to the known historical record but it holds fast to the sinister, murderous and aberrant sexual activities that are history’s gossip. On that basis, it’s nearly spectacular in mouthwatering lasciviousness. And there’s much more going for it than just the juicy: its terrific cast, classy production values, music, editing and CGI effects reflect the reported total cost of $135 million.

This is ridiculously clever visually. You get shots that look like living Renaissance paintings and scenes of everyday life so realistic you can almost smell them. The texture of it is just right. The acting is A+. The history is wibbly wobbly, with things telescoped and transposed, but most of the play is in the gaps where the facts are disputed, which I appreciate. The characterizations are very good and well fleshed out. I know I shouldn't love these, but I can't stop watching.

Rodrigo Borgia, soon to become Pope Alexander VI, is one of the most powerful men on earth.

But now, as Pope, he has alliances to seal, Truces to make, and enemies to crush.

In Three seasons, follow his family through heartbreak, lust, love for one another (At one point, a carnal love), and, in the end, hope for the future of the Borgias.

Welcome to the Vatican, and welcome to the reign, of Alexander Sextus, The Pope of Rome, and the Patriarch of the Borgia Family.

Format: DVD
This highly fictionalized version of a fascinating part of the Renaissance and some of the characters in it includes great acting, scenery and costumes but is so far removed from historical fact as to be slightly ludicrous. This is the only reason why I don't give it five stars. The people it's about, as a rule, did indeed live during that time period, but most of the relationships and many of the events simply did not occur. Lucretia Borgia did not poison herself, she died as a result of a difficult childbirth after several marriages and many pregnancies. And there is absolutely no evidence that she and Cesare had an incestuous relationship. But this makes for good television, especially when the actors are so incredibly attractive and charismatic. There is some evidence however, that Machiavelli based the main character in The Prince on Cesare Borgia. Our knowledge of historical fact during that period is sketchy, but not so totally lacking that this could even be called historical fiction. It's highly entertaining, and I wish there had been further seasons of it, but I really hope no one bases any understanding of history or of the Borgia family on it. It's important to note that much of the notoriety of the Borgia family can be laid at the feet of the Italian families like the De Medici, Sforsa, and Orsini who were no better behaved nor virtuous but who resented the fact that a family of questionable Spanish origin had taken over the Papacy and it's lands and risen to power normally reserved for their kinsmen.
