I posted my review of  "The Borgias" on Thursday. As with "Camelot," it's not my kinda show, and not something that's going to be in the rotation going forward, but as I often do with new series premieres, I'm curious for outside reactions. What did everybody else think? Was there enough there for you to stick around?
