The third season of The Borgias has concluded on Showtime and what a ride it has been!

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!
