I was recently captivated by the over complex drama of The Borgias. There is a lot to say about the show, negative and positive. When I began watching I was interested in Cesare, he seemed so mysterious and indecent, in some instances. HAHA. His character development was constantly inclining and that kept me in tune with the show. Cesare’s relationship with his sister was very loving, in the beginning, he cared about his younger sister and it was enticing but as Lucrezia failed more and more in her relationships you could slowly see the siblings relationship turn faster, it was a surprise but I wasn’t totally taken aback when they had sex. I was surprised that she initiated, in a sense, and not Cesare. (haha, weird) So as Cesare goes on protecting his sister and finding his fathers forgiveness he becomes this great man to do great things. The ending for his character left me pleased but I didn’t like his wife, I don’t understand why he had to marry ( and that is not just about my obsessive crush). Cesare Borgia was a free spirit and marriage, although not seen much in the show, took a small part of imagination. Lucrezia was so full of herself that you would almost call her naive but she grew up when she got married and began to use her brain and understand her brother can’t paint the entire world with rainbows. She was this amazingly witty woman that really only cared about herself, her son, and her brother- in that order (the son and Cesare was probably in competes) She understood what to do to keep her entire family whole and no one was going to stop her from doing it. Her character was very empowering. Dear old Juan, made my last nerve wither away. He felt forced into the show (come to think of it, it wouldn’t be the same without him meshing the tithes between different family relationships. . . . ) His character was over acted, he longed and talked about being this mighty man that would do anything to protect what he holds dear but in honesty he was a scared little boy, he was more naive than Lucrezia! When Cesare killed him, I clapped in happiness. He was dragging on, a drunk that needed to be rid of. If he didn’t die I most likely would’ve stopped watching the show. (ugh) Now, the Pope, Vanozza, and Giulia were spectacular when needed. Vanozza was this strong willed woman who didn’t need a man to complete her, she was beautiful. Even though the Pope “left” her she stomped her feet for a short while and said “fcuk it”! haha. At first I thought I was going to dislike Guila but later as her and Vanozza developed that very small relationship I decided not to hate her but not to like her either way. And the Pope and all his deceit. This man drove his kids to all that they were. He didn’t care about anything but his security as Pope. But he did love his family, blindly, and that was shown throughout the seasons. And lastly MICHAELETTO ( he deserves capitols) man oh man! Him being Cesare’s right hand kept Cesare on top, it kept him witty and dependable because he knew he would always have Michaeletto to catch him if he ever failed. That relationship was strong which helped Cesare build it all. When Michaeletto killed Pascal I was so torn for him. LOL. “no I wasn’t ready!!” He loved him and Michaeletto was such a loyal person that for him to be deceived was unbearable a literally broken heart. When he came and gave Cesare hope in defeating that Sforza lady (spits) I was in awe. haha. The ending was a happy one, as happy as it could be. Even though it was canceled it left you wondering about how Lucrezia and Cesare would display their relations, how the Pope was going to ensure this monarchy, if the youngest brother was doing well. Everything was up in the air but then it wasn’t because their Borgias, so it’ll all work out.
Peace, Love, and Tranquilizers.
