I liked this. I know nothing about this time period, so I can't speak as to history vs what we saw. But I enjoyed it. The story moves along, the characters are interesting and well played, the sets are rich. I like the eldest son, Cesare Borgia. For a guy who only reluctantly follows the path his father has laid out for him, he is both good at it and seems to enjoy it. I also like the assassin, Micheletto. He plays that part superbly. Has a strange physical look to him. The daughter, Lucrezia. Is that the famous Lucretia whose name I vaguely recognize (Lucretia McEvil)? The relationship between Cesare & Lucrezia... almost creepy. Ok, full-on creepy. So there was a time you could bribe your way blatantly to the papacy, eh? Lucky times have changed.
