Looking back... Showtime probably got their butt in a sling from the Catholic Church for "Shock Writing" that deviated way from historical counts. It's not "what we wanted" as Showtime" was advertising at the time, but what the writers and producers wanted. Well, they killed the show and told us it was because "they no longer could afford it". Well how come you no longer can air the Series in syndication either. Showtime had to make a deal with the Church because they got their butt in a sling, particularly during the beginning of the third season when they started making the Series looking like a porn movie. We weren't waiting for those incest scenes Showtime! You killed a masterpiece, and could have wrap it with a nice bow with a final season 4!

Well, I was watching the second episode, but now that it's cancelled without an ending, I think I'm giving up. I liked it until the 2nd ep :/

If you're going to cancel a show like The Borgias, at least have the decency to give it a real ending. So many people liked this show, one more season wouldn't have killed you. IDIOTS.

Nooooo Borgias is cancelled! I can't believe it. I would love my Sunday nights just knowing that I was going to have something actually incredible to watch on TV.

The Borgias cancelled ... I believe it ! Why is a question for showtime. Does Showtime have a "good answer" , probably not. When I saw Holiday Grainger in Bonnie & Clyde, that was my 1st thought, "I'll bet "they" cancelled THE BORGIAS" !!!

I am very disappointed that "The Borgias" is being cancelled. Why? This is a great show. It was educational, enlightening and interesting.
I looked forward to seeing it and now I can't.
It would be nice is we could see it out.

The only show on the list that I watched, besides Homeland on Showtime. As soon as Homeland's season is over i'm cancelling Showtime. All the good shows are taken off and the crap is renewed.
