I just *love* the tag line for this series:
"The original crime family." That just nails
it. The Sopranos and the Corleones were rank
amateurs compared to the Borgias.

What I love about the series is its depiction
of how the history of revenge and treacherous
hypocrisy seems to be synonymous with the history
of Christianity. It's a ballsy topic for Showtime
to take on, in this day and age. I commend them
for doing it.
