YOU GO RODRIGO AND YOUR CARDINAL PWNING SELF. I don't give a damn about historical inaccuracies: this show is AWESOME. And the clothes are quite amazing. And the people are so clean. I suspect the people of those days weren't quite so clean, but I DON'T CARE. This is like The Tudors, without me hating most of the main characters.

ETA: I am a little disturbed that all the ads on this seem to be for arthritis medicine or depends. SENIORS OF CANADA HAVE YOU NO SHAME? MUST YOU WATCH PAPAL ORGIES INSTEAD OF MATLOCK?

ETA 2: So I am watching the finale of Vampire Diaries (a show I haven't seen in ages) and Ben 'Peels no grapes' Hur is apparently an EVIL VAMPIRE-WEREWOLF. Oh Ben-Hur, what happened? Also, who has Gone with the Wind events in these days? Why not toss in a slave auction there and get it over with?
lesbiassparrow: (love is never wrong)
Every time I watch the Borgias, I keep thinking how much more fun the papacy would be if it were like that now. Maybe not with the murder and the wars all over Italy, but the mistresses! And making your sons cardinals! And having sexy performances in the Vatican! I look at Benedict and shake my head at how far the papacy has fallen.

I think that I may be the only person in the world who likes Ursula. I think I shall keep liking her just because the people on TWOP loathe her so much because she (according to them) looks like a horse and takes time away from Lucretia. cut for spoilers for the most recent episode )
