I just finished watching Session 2 of Showtime's Borgia's. It was excellent. I am not sure how historically accurate it is, but the acting and customing is amazing. The episode of teh of the season was a solid 10. Jeremy Iron's is Pope Alexander the VI and gave a performance of a lifetime. If you have a child you will so appreciate this performance of the Pope's coming to terms with his son Juan's life. I can hear my Aunt Stella telling me years ago your choldren are your children and you alway try to help them.  If you not watched this series if it a try. Anyone else watch it this season and last?

Since we canceled our premium channels there are a few programmes that I miss, this is one of them.

Alice I saw season one and the first episode of season two.  I thought they were very well done and the costuming is absolutely gorgeous.  I think it's more accurate than my favorite guilty pleasure "The Tudors"!

I liked season one but thought season two was much better.  Even hubby liked it!
