I love movies and show in this time period. There have never been any they showed Italy this well. I just told my family "our next vacation needs to be to Rome Naples and Forli. All inspired by this show. Why cancel this without and ending. Viewers know that this is not this history Chanel. The show only made me want to research the history of the Catholic Church and historical Popes. I will not watch Showtime ever again for peaking my interest into this just to have it stop without an ending. What a disappointment. The actors and actresses were amazing.

Because the Catholic church has nothing better to do bur critique a show to makes sure it's telling the truth, it was a mob show what else goes with the mob sex, murder, lies and more sex. It's not like they were pure ppl, c'mon already.

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.
