Set an Email Reminder for The Borgias
Start Time: Jun 16, 2013 10:00PM (Eastern)
There is little we like more than shows of political and personal intrigue. But, if we had a choice about a subset of personal and political intrigue shows, we'd go for a period piece version. Enter, "The Borgias." Showtime's series about the fabulously wealthy and intricacy-minded Borgia family features Jeremy Irons in the lead role and can amaze one from time to time. The series is based on real people and sort of, kind of, maybe on real things that happened, but we doubt stuff actually went down as it goes down here. It just feels unlikely. We don't let that bother us though, and neither should you, stories heightened for dramatic purposes can be fun.
