Game of Thrones may have captured viewers’ attention like a lady streaker on death-row, but another story of betrayal, sex, violence, politics, sex, betrayal, violence and sex returns to Sky Atlantic this weekend.
The main difference is that in The Borgias, the drama is based upon actual events (!!). Telling the story of Medieval Pope Borgia (played by power-hungry nympho Jeremy Irons) the series illustrates just how corrupt the Vatican was at the turn of the 16th century. Thankfully the Catholic Church have put all that behind them now.. *Laughs uncontrollably*
The Borgias Season Two starts at 9pm on Saturday 21st July on Sky Atlantic
