Sex. Power. Murder. Amen. Oscar® winner Jeremy Irons stars in the epic new Showtime Original Series The Borgias, the explosive story of history’s original crime family. Conspiring with his ruthless sons Cesare and Juan, and poisonously seductive daughter Lucrezia, the charismatic Rodrigo Borgia will stop at nothing in his vicious pursuit of power. Mercilessly cruel and decadent, intimidation and murder are Borgia’s weapons of choice in his relentless crusade to become Pope. Having gained control of the Vatican through the dark underbelly of Rome, his corrupt reign as Pope Alexander VI is driven by his obsessions, embroiling the 15th century Catholic Church – and all of Europe – in scandal. From Academy Award® winner Neil Jordan comes the compelling drama of the world’s most powerful and notorious family.

A little late, iTunes...
Fantastic show in the vein of The Tudors.
Seriously though, iTunes crew, you need put up great series like these faster as they become available!
Absolutely brilliant show but iTunes has released it way too late...
Great Historic Tale To Tell!
The rest of the season doesn't match up to the pilot as far as true violence goes, but that being said, the rest is much more character/story based where the violence would seem forced. Jeremy Irons gives an Emmy worthy performance in this series! The sets, dialogue, and story move along at a good pace without ever really lagging.
