    Looks good...but I like the story of Rodrigo, Cesare, and Lucrecia as told via video game better...

    I'll probably pick up Showtime to catch this. When in 2011 does it start?

    The Tudors was entertaining in its first season, then became a repetitive snoozefest in its later seasons. I hope the same thing won't be said of this show.

    Well, that do you expect? He kept on marrying women and getting rid of them. rather repetitive after wife #2, no?

    Trailer does not impress.

    The Tudors' only redeeming feature was Sam Neill, who played Wolsey (brilliantly).

    Pretty excited for this. Alexander VI is in the running for my favorite pope!

    So this premiers on April 3, while A Game of Thrones premieres on April 17. I think I'm more partial to the Borgias but don't want to have to choose!

    Just started watching this after The Killing ended. Very cool to watch since I've been reading a lot about the period.
