Bring it on Showtime. Knowledge is Power. From Director Neil Jordan comes tales and stories of the dastardly Italian Borgia dynasty, one of the most infamous families of the Renaissance in Italy. This is a family whose code was certainly to take no prisoners.
WOW, was all I could say when I viewed the trailer for The Borgias, the next blockbuster from Showtime, which brought us The Tudors, one of the most fabulous television series of all time.

What he lacked in morals he made up for by trailblazing intrigue with a capital I.
