Product Description

The Borgias is the sordid saga of one of the most remarkable and legendary families in history.

Set in 15th Century Italy at the height of the Renaissance, this acclaimed series chronicles the corrupt rise of patriarch Rodrigo Borgia (Academy Award® winner Jeremy Irons) to the papacy, where he proceeds to commit every sin in the book to amass and retain power, influence and enormous wealth for himself and his family. But with absolute power comes even more powerful enemies who will stop at nothing to see him toppled. Don't miss a minute of the lavish, scandalous drama from the creative mind of Academy Award® winner Neil Jordan.

Forget the carpings elsewhere regarding historical accuracy this is a visual feast of stunning costumes, consummate acting, brilliant camera work. It is a fictional portrayal based reasonably closely on the real lives of the Borgias. I live not far from Gandia & Xativa in Valencia. and this family is celebrated throughout the region, where the Christian name "Borja" is quite common. So an added dimension for me. Just buy the Blue Ray version, sit back, and be riveted by this masterpiece of modern entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A magnificent & engrossing historical drama. 3 Feb 2013
By Willy Eckerslike TOP 1000 REVIEWER

Put away your preconceptions about the notorious Borgias; you will find little to reinforce their salacious reputation here. What we're presented with in the first two seasons of this superb drama is the rise to power of Rodrigo Borgia to becoming Pope Alexander VI and his subsequent trials and tribulations mostly as a consequence of Vatican in-fighting and family misdemeanours. Jeremy Irons is brilliant as the ruthless and power hungry Rodrigo but, once elected pope he really does his very best to square the circle of papal piety and human nature while always trying to do the right thing for his family.

Although the political machinations of 15th Century Italy may seem obscure, the timeless themes provide the narrative backbone to the plot while the family provides the drama. Rodrigo's blind devotion to his wastrel son Huan(Davis Oakes) over the faithful and reliable Cesare (Francois Arnaud) establishes a vivid sibling rivalry and while Lucrezia (Holiday Grainger) seeks for love over her father's planned politically advantageous matches there is often a hint of an incestuous relationship with Cesare. Sean Harris' performance as Cesare's black-ops assassin Micheletto deserves special mention; capable and faithful yet ruthless with a frisson of homo-erotic sleaze. As befitting a runtime of over sixteen hours, it is impossible to do justice to the full complexity of the plot in a short review but suffice to say it is totally engrossing viewing. The cast are superb, the Hungarian locations & costumes are sumptuous and the whole show has a glossy and extravagant feel; the production compares favourably with HBO's excellent `Rome'.

The ending comes far too soon and is a little disappointing until you discover that the third series will be airing in America in April this year. From the trailer it looks like we'll be encountering the Borgias at the full height of their corruption and decadence; poisonings, murders and much beside will ensue. Hoorah!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Borgias 21 Feb 2014

I have watched The Borgias seasons 1, 2 & 3 and have loved every minute. Very disappointed to hear there won't be a 4th season, the story line is left up in the air. This series is far superior to Borgias: Faith and Fear.

Not as good as the Tudors and a pity to hear they will probably not make the final series but very entertaining
