    "The Art of War" is another great episode of The Borgias, a show that started off fairly slowly, but now has become one of my favorites on TV in just a short period of time. I jumped out of my seat when I saw the cannonballs with chains get shot off and destroy men and horses. Amazing effects there and anytime a period drama can elicit that kind of response you know you are watching something special. The show is doing the right thing by heavily focusing on the wars and battles of this time and less on the romance and whatnot, although I expect we will get some of that next week.

    Great episode of TV though. Good drama all around.
