I am currently watching the series, The Borgias, courtesy of Netflix. If you loved The Tudors, this will please as well. Originally aired on Showtime, the controversial House of Borgia which is based on actual historic events, will intrigue and addict , for sure. The series highlights riveting Renaissance surroundings and costumery. Jeremy Irons plays Rodrigo Borgia who rises to the papacy via his own corrupt and felonious ways. Scandalous, it is!
