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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Season 2 gets organized April 13, 2012
Format:DVD
THE BORGIAS is back on screen and Season 2 is a welcome return. As last season progressed the series became a bit fragmented, but those seeds of subplots are now coming to be fleshed out. The cast remains the same (except some of last season's actors have already been knocked off, like poor Paolo). Neil Jordan still is the major influence and he is ably served by Jeremy Irons, (Rodrigo Borgia) the wonderful François Arnaud (Cesare Borgia), Holliday Grainger (Lucrezia Borgia), Lotte Verbeek (Giulia Farnese), David Oakes (Juan Borgia), Colm Feore (Giuliano Della Rovere), et al. One major change that is very positive - the art of the opening credits are truly creative and historically informed and simply fine graphics. Here is to another season with the cruelest family that ever lived! Grady Harp, April 12

4.0 out of 5 stars Deeper and Deadlier January 16, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
The Borgias' second season builds on the strengths of its first: plotting, acting and characterisation on the artistic side, costumes, sets and spectacle on the technical; this is a season in which everyone involved seems to have hit their stride, and whilst a production of this scope and ambition could always be better, consider me satisfied.

Here in Australia it's been out since late 2012, so I've watched every episode and some of the Special Features. With this sort of historical drama I'd happily watch a ten hour documentary of the times. It certainly wouldn't hurt the producers credentials if, in these behind-the-scenes docos, they highlighted more those events in history faithfully dramatised by the show (naturally glossing over the inaccuracies).

Overall this show has turned out better than I thought it would and is at least one star better than its closest rival, The Tudors, thanks in large part to a more charismatic lead in Jeremy Irons and a wonderful supporting cast. It may help that I'm less familiar with Rodrigo and Cesare Borgia than I am with Henry VIII, but even so, The Borgias has a natural energy and emotion The Tudors often struggled to achieve. It looks like a show made by people who wanted to tell its story rather than cynically cash in on its forerunner's success.

Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Borgias: The Second Season April 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have watched the first season and was looking forward to the second...Preordered. Have had to return the set TWICE because,
as others have commented, there are Flashing White Lines on the disc and I am disappointed that I have not been able to watch
this wonderfully photographed movie. No guarantee that I won't be sent a THIRD DEFECTIVE DISK. What has happened to Customer "Service"? Amazon's communication system is lacking and I am sent to the UPS facility to return yet another one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great series. DVD's are defective. April 27, 2013
Format:DVD
The second season is amazing. Amazing beyond words.

However, there is a huge problem. Showtime screwed up. DVD's are defective. Not just from Amazon, and I've gone through 8 sets of the show. From retail, to online.

If watching on Widescreen, there are flashing lines that show up and will continue to keep flashing and are very easy to notice. It's horrible.

Amazon has stopped selling the product, so hopefully it will be fixed.

2.0 out of 5 stars DVD set is defective April 4, 2013
By Joseph
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have already received two sets and all are defective. There is a white line running on the top of the screen and it is on all the disk's. . I email and get no results. Who wants to keep sending DVD's back that are defective and no one will even check there stock. I have already received two sets and all are defective.

I wish someone at Amazon would take the time and view these DVD's, then they would see what the problem is.

Format:DVD
While I enjoy the show, there is a problem with the discs, there are white lines above the border on the top of the letterbox. Need to return it and hopefully get a copy without the problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brittanica March 30, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Excellent acting one and all. Made us feel we were right there, just hiding behind a screen! A history lesson that will always stick in my head from now on. Wish those historic lessons had always been this way, years ago. Whoever thought this up, and put this story on the screen, is brilliant. Thanks for the pleasure.

Everyone should see the Borgias as it ignites historical interests to research more on this period. It is interesting to know the real history as oppose to the movie. Read more

Much more exciting than The Tudors! Although not 100% historically accurate, for a TV series it gives viewers a pretty good understanding of the history.
