    The second half of The Borgias' two hour premiere here on Showtime. I think that they should reconsider some of these episode titles as they kind of give away the ending of each show.

    The second half was virtually like the first. Jeremy Irons and the rest of the cast delivered solid, authentic, believable performances in these roles, and I am starting to get intrigued with how things will play out even though I could simply do that on Wikipedia.

    The sex scenes are a little less graphic than The Tudors which means it is safer to view at work. Bad news for the perverts out there unfortunately.

    This show is interesting. It's not quite good yet, but I have faith that it might get there.
