The Borgias is a one-hour drama series based on the infamous Italian Renaissance family The Borgias. Jeremy Irons stars as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of The Borgia family who ascends to the highest circles of power within Renaissance-era Italy. The series begins as the family's patriarch Rodrigo becomes Pope, propelling him, his two Machiavellian sons Cesare and Juan, and his scandalously beautiful daughter, Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance. And all the power and influence eventually leads to their demise.
Very high drama. I loved the series. I watched while I was on the tread climber and it made the time go fast. The cover stated cc but I could not get it to work. I like closed caption as it makes it easier to understand the story. This is the only series that I have not been able to get the cc to work.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
