Bonnie Says: You MUST Watch 'The Borgias!' It's The Best New Show On TV!

Hey HollywoodLifers — if you have been in historical drama withdrawal like me, since The Tudors ended, then your prayers are answered

The Borgias, which premieres on Showtime at 9 pm on Sunday, Apr. 3, is full of the juicy family and political intrigues, complicated love affairs, gorgeous historical hunks and breathtaking beauties, that made The Tudors so fun.

In the Borgias we are transported to Rome in the year 1492, as Pope Innocent VIII is dying. The ambitious, ruthless Spanish Rodrigo Borgia, (Jeremy Irons), plots with his loyal eldest son, Lesale, (Francois Arnaud) how to bribe his way into the most powerful position in the world — POPE!

What’s so fascinating is that though Borgia is the head of the Catholic Church, the fact that he has a longtime mistress, Vanozza (Joanne Whalley), who is the mother of his four children, is completely accepted. In fact, they are all honored attendees as Borgia is anointed Pope in a solemn, religious ceremony.

I can’t wait to watch what happens to Borgia and Vanozza, to Rodrigo’s handsome ambitious sons Ceasare and Juan, and especially what will befall his beautiful, young and innocent daughter Lucrezia (Holliday Crainger). You just know there’s trouble ahead for her!

So tune in — I swear you won’t be sorry!

If you’re going to write an article about a show, please check the names of the characters and actors first. He’s name is Cesare– not Lesale or Ceasare. Also, the name of the actress who plays Lucrezia is not Holliday Crainger, it’s Holliday Grainger. Again, the name of the Pope’s mistress is Vannozza, not Vanozza.

Looks like a great show and hopefully closer to historical fact than ‘The Tudors’.

FYI: Rodrigo Borgia’s son’s name was Cesare, not Lesale or Ceasare.
