The Borgias: Power and Fortune by Paul Strathern, review: sex, violence and clichéd writing
The new Showtime mini-series, created by Neil Jordan, is about the corrupt Borgias family of the Renaissance. No one is grayer than Rodrigo Borgia, who bought the papacy in a rigged election, had numerous mistresses and fathered four children yet was also a skilled diplomat and renowned patron of the arts. There was no Gibbon or Niall Ferguson to write about the Borgias, and so they become a little demonized.
He added that what he found interesting in writing the script was that once Rodrigo was put in the context of his family, he remained attractive no matter how evil he became. Irons said that in researching the part he made a list of all the qualities attributed to Rodrigo Borgia.

Like all the best international costume epics, The Borgias couldn't give a stuffed fig about sense. Subtlety is allowed to make only the feeblest of interjections, before being drowned out by the incessant hammering of non-secular buttocks. It's all about The Drama.

And if The Drama demands a scene in which a wincing Vatican lackey examines the pope's genitals "habet duos testiculos et bene pendentes" , or a bit in which Cesare paws silently at Lucrezia's chin on a lawn while she pouts and makes dolphin noises at his beard, then so be it. Ours is not to reason why. Ours is but to marvel at the spectacle of a production that does to 15th century Italy what The Tudors did to the Tudors.
That is: work it into a lather; then add bums.
Does the prospect of this "The Borgias" fill you with paroxysms of delight?
