The Spaniard pope, Rodrigo Borgia, is reeling from the revelation that his eldest child, Cesare, is responsible for the murder of his beloved son, Juan (Cesare confesses during the second season finale!). A rift is formed between the Borgia patriarch and his heir, leading Cesare to seek advancement through defiance, intrigue, and warfare. Rodrigo is, reasonably, fearful of Cesare's actions, but he finds himself dependent on his son's cunning stratagem to create a Borgia empire. Meanwhile, Lucrezia Borgia finds herself married to a naive, young prince from Naples who offers very little aid when she deals with his troublesome relatives who look down on her bastard Borgia (aka Spanish) lineage and illegitimate son. If that's not enough, Cesare and Lucrezia are on the cusp of finally consummating their unspoken sexual attraction. Is incest a taboo even a Borgia would refuse to commit?
This season simply left me breathless!
The scenery, the props, the costumes, the cinematography, the direction, the acting are all sumptuously (yes, sumptuously in the most decadent, delicious way) and expertly handled. Very few television shows give their audience such a cinematic viewing. Taking in an episode of The Borgias is a heady experience that leaves me craving the next installment. This season is must have for any TV lover!
Neil Jordan has brilliantly plotted a storyline close to actual history in the telling of The Borgias. There is never a dull moment, the scenes build beautifully and the editing is superb. Action scenes with Renaissance weaponry is amazing as are the scenery and props. Direction in Season 3 has been a lot tighter too and all the threads are well linked between episodes.
The Borgias is a visual feast, providing passion, plotting, curruption, ambition and politics all wrapped up in the marvellous package of Neil Jordan's visionary expose of Renaissance Italy.Read more ›
Let's talk about Season 3 of the Borgias: Without direct spoilers but to let you know what's coming in this season You'll get to see the Pope alive after S2's cliffhanger and how he manages to clear out the sneaky betrayers, Lucrezia's wedding to Alfonso and the aftermath, Micheletto helping everyone but himself, Cesare gaining an army and a wife, Lucrezia manipulating situations without the cunning to see 2 steps ahead in the Chessboard game of life, Cesare and Father having an all out confrontation about past and future actions, Alfonso (from S2) a pawn of just about everyone, Guilia saying goodbye to one and hello to another, the close bond between Rodrigo and Vanozza, the dangerous ego of Rodrigo/Pope Alexander VI w/plans for his family, the dark dance of Lucrezia's desire fulfilled, Catarina Sforza - the Tigress of Forli make pointed appearances, what "happened" to the Hebrews during the time of Alexander's rule of Rome, Cesare taking command of one thing he's always wanted but hesitant, still, until the very end, about taking it all.
There is something about each episode in season 3 that stands out but episode 10 with Lucrezia's opening soliloquy only to end as it does w/an almost ecstasy arch of her neck as she's next to certain characters leaves us all wanting more.Read more ›
