Why is it allways Lucrezia the incestrous ...? If there was incest Lucrezia was still a child when her father or brother raped her ... It was her brother who killed her husband - NOT Lucrezia who tried to prevent it ... ughhh, how I hate journalists...

I am looking forward to this series as a feast for the eye - I expect the production values will be high as The Tudors was. However, I guess the accuracy will leave a lot to be desired.
Lots of information about the series on the Sky Atlantic site

Sky Atlantic

Hi,

"The Borgias" is now replaying in Canada on CTV...
So far, Lucretia is seen as an innocent young girl, married off to a 'real jerk'.
Cesar is the licentious & murderous Cardinal - but he is so brilliantly played by Francois Arnaud (a Canadian actor) that you can't help but like him!!
Juan is seen as a petty complainer and a stupid hothead. He is David Oates (from Britain) and last year was in "The Pillars of the Earth" as a nasty villain, who loves getting bathed by his mother!!!

Jeremy Irons plays the Pope as a "two faced" conniver and is quite good.

We are presently on Chapter 5. I think there are 9 editions.....

Larry

Just watched the first episode & it looks promising. Well cast & no significant departures from events as far as I am aware. Francois Arnaud is very suitable as Cesare - he looks more than capable of all kinds of malicious acts

Just watched the first two episodes, I'm unsure as to whether or not I like it.

I have watched most of them and I have to confess that I was a little bit disapointed. I guess I expected too much. Recent studies have found no evidence that Lucrecia had an incestuous relationship with Cesare.

I believe she did have,it wasn't a simple record of it,maybe she had this affair with her brothers when she was teen(for that period) and later she stopped it,but once the people had heard of it they continued to consider her as such.

I've read a few mixed view of this series.

I finished watching the whole season several weeks ago. It isn't as good as the Tudors and some of the actors are quite boring. For example, the actor who plays Lucrezia isn't very impressive, nor is her character. My favourites in the series are Colm Feore and Jeremy Irons.

I love watching the borgias on SHOwtime,despite the nudity, and otherwise I love its like watching a movie. I love every episode they are definitely a renaissance mob family.

Rodrigo Borgia/ pope Alexander VI- the "don" of the Borgia family
Cesare Borgia- the eldest son
Juan Borgia- the second son
Lucrezia Borgia- the daughter and is used in her father's plans of manipulation
Joffre- the third son and used like Lucrezia to gain Naples
The Borgia tv series poster/ soundtrack cover looks so mobish

The Borgias isn't as good as I once thought it was. It started out ok, but I believe by the end of the season it kind fell off track. There was a big anti-climatic event with the whole King of France thing which seemed to lead nowhere. And there are a few characters I wish would just disappear because they add nothing to the story; Ursula and Guilia just to name a few.

One thing i'm finding is that while watching the show - I am constantly having to look up on wikipedia background information and what not on the people in the show. I expected better.

Too many things in contradiction with real history facts...

All fact is no fun.

If it was a factual programme, they would have made a documentary about the family.

Saw a new Borgias promo featuring Cesare, he's cut his hair and got a perm; he's still hott though. The Borgias first season was kind of schizophrenic and I found myself less interested in Jeremy Irons character than Cesare, though his sudden love for Ursula was too forced. As for the incest issue, it hasn't been brought up on the show despite the closeness of Cesare and Lucrezia, so far it is just a brother/sister love. I don't know if Showtime has the guts to go the incest route like HBO did with Rome.
