THE BORGIAS!  
JUST FINISHED WATCHING THE LEAKED PILOT AND HOLY SHIT NEW FANDOM OBSESSION!

There's much that I loved about this pilot, I mean from how Jeremy Irons can still get it even while playing a corrupting Pope and committing many sins and totally not helping my priest!kink at all (not that I mind of course), to how utterly gorgeous the look and feel the show is based around, along with how utterly haunting the opening credits sequence is which is totally perfect, to just how engaging the pilot was altogether that the only complaint I have is that I don't have the next episode available to me yet.

However, if there's one thing that I absolutely fell in love with while watching is my new OTP:


Cesare/Lucrezia



YES, THEY ARE BROTHER AND SISTER BUT IDGAF BECAUSE LOOK AT HOW ADORABLE THEY ARE TOGETHER! Seriously, they are absolutely shameless with the incestuous vibes between them (and by shameless I mean shameless, they practically have already announced their undying love for one another in every single scene they are in together, you just want them to start making out already!) Lucrezia is so adorable and precious, and Cesare is all adoring and protective of his sister, calling her "my love" with innocent nose-brushing and just, as;fjdaksfldakfds!!! MY SHIPPER HEART GO A-SQUEEE! ♥ ♥ ♥ I mean, I was drawn into the show because of Jeremy Irons (duh) but dammit, these two have stolen my heart. There's also some homoeroticism subtext, as well. Incest and slash vibes, along with sex, violence, nudity, sin after sin after sin, you know, all that good stuff. ^_^


The Borgias officially premieres April 3rd on Showtime, but I highly recommend downloading and previewing the pilot beforehand just to take a glimpse at how awesome this show is. If you liked The Tudors I definitely suggest watching this, it's really good. Plus with the slash, the incest, the violence and murder, there's just blasphemy everywhere up in this show. What's not to love about that?

Uh, yeah, we're supposed to believe they're brother and sister? 'Cause those gifs totally scream UST. Like whoa.
Renée: Six. Seductress.rogueslayer452 on March 28th, 2011 05:04 pm (UTC)
HEHE, IKR? ;D They are totally blatant about it too, with all their scenes together. It's like, aren't people taking notice how these two act around each other? Hell, their dialogue alone is like omg just kiss already! because they speak like they are totally in love with each other (there's a clip for upcoming episodes where she says that even if she were to marry, she could "never love a husband like she does him" !!!!) So yeah, it's both subtextual and textual with them, it's ridiculously adorable.

And I have no shame in shipping them whatsoever. I just hope that we actually see them hooking up for real, since it's that canonical to begin with.

Well, I wasn't a Tudors fan. I'm kind of a history buff, and I winced too much to get into that series. However, I know less about this period, so I'm excited about the possibilities. Plus, Jeremy Irons is always awesome. I'm totally going to give this a try.
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 29th, 2011 06:21 am (UTC)
History buffs need not be watching these kinds of shows because I know even if they are going for a particular family of specific time period they are adding their own little things here and there. Though my sister is slightly a history buff herself and she was able to watch The Tudors just fine. Though it depends on what you're able to take out of it and separate the history from the entertainment, I suppose.

I find the pilot of The Borgias intriguing, so definitely try it out.

SAW THIS A WEEK AND A HALF AGO.♥♥♥

I remember seeing the original THE BORGIAS when I was a kid, and the whole vaguely incestuous Lucrezia/Cesare shippiness is all kinds of infamous.

Like I mentioned this Jeremy Irons series at work the other day, and all the middle aged women were like "I REMEMBER SEEING THE ORIGINAL. THERE WAS A LOT OF INCEST."
Renée: Castiel. Nngh.rogueslayer452 on March 28th, 2011 11:55 pm (UTC)
ISN'T IT GLORIOUS?? \O/

This is the first time hearing about something being made about the Borgias family, and even with that I have vague knowledge on the history of them in general (had to refresh myself on the basics once my curiosity spiked after hearing about this show), but I love how Lucrezia/Cesare seems to be everyone's favorite. lol

I JUST REALIZED: THIS MIGHT BE THE FIRST SHOW RIGHT NOW THAT HAS CANONICAL INCEST FOR PEOPLE TO SHIP! LOLOLOL!!
Revyallodole on March 28th, 2011 07:07 pm (UTC)
What is this gloriousness and where can I get my hands on it. *__*

Those gifs... DAYUM.
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Never change.rogueslayer452 on March 28th, 2011 11:45 pm (UTC)
Would you like a download link, bb? I want more people to be aware of this amazing show and the leaked pilot is definitely one worth checking out.

Oh yes, there's more inappropriate adorableness between those two. It's like, how can you not ship them? a;sjf;daskf;dlafd ♥

Brother and sister with looks like that?! I don't think so!
Renée: Castiel. Cute and sneaky.rogueslayer452 on March 28th, 2011 11:42 pm (UTC)
If it's anything like how some historians have believed in the rumors within the Borgias family, there will no doubt be more incestuous moments between these two. Judging from some preview clips they just might go further than just simple rolling around together in the grass and smoldering eyesexing. ;)
She that is Mesweetsyren on March 28th, 2011 07:55 pm (UTC)
I literally cannot wait for this. Cannot. Wait.

Also - totally sailing that ship with you there bb...
Renée: Victor/Sierra. Forever.rogueslayer452 on March 28th, 2011 11:37 pm (UTC)
It's so worth it, trust me. After hearing the rave reviews for the pilot I had to see it, and believe me it's totally amazing.

AND THIS SHIP. ♥ Seriously, I adore them sfm already.
goldenusagigoldenusagi on March 28th, 2011 09:15 pm (UTC)
I think I have much more fun with series like this when I wait and watch a season all at once. But I will definitely be watching!
Renée: LotS. Cara.rogueslayer452 on March 28th, 2011 11:34 pm (UTC)
This is true. I remember getting into The Tudors because my sister had the S1 and S2 DVDs and I started watching one episode right after the other. I was sorely disappointed that after we finished we had to wait to get S3 on DVD and for S4 to air, lol. So I totally hear you about waiting. But for this? I just couldn't because I heard so many good things about it already, I had to see what the fuss was about. And it didn't disappoint at all. I think you'll like it as well. ;)

Renée: Cylons. Happy endings are love.rogueslayer452 on March 28th, 2011 11:32 pm (UTC)
I KNEW ONCE YOU REVIEWED IT I HAD TO GET MY HANDS ON IT. AND YESSSS, IT'S SO MUCH FUN AND GORGEOUS. ALL THE CAST IS NOT ONLY PRETTY BUT CHEMISTRY IS THROUGH THE ROOF!

LOL YES AT THE MONKEY. "EXCUSE ME...EXCUSE MY MONKEY" -- INNUENDO CENTRAL, YO!

AND CAN WE TALK ABOUT JEREMY IRONS? BECAUSE DAYUM. EVEN BRINGING THE RELIGIOUS AND CORRUPTION AS THE POPE HE MANAGES TO REMAIN SEX ON A STICK. INCLUDING THE SEX PART, WHICH OBVIOUSLY IS SHOWN (SECRET PASSAGEWAY ROMANCES! SEXY SEXY KISSAGE!)

no good eitheralanna_zero on March 29th, 2011 12:22 pm (UTC)
So I'm usually not into those kind of shows, but those gifs...erm yeah, might be checking that show out now xD
Renée: LotS. Cara.rogueslayer452 on March 29th, 2011 01:00 pm (UTC)
I'll admit to not really getting into period dramas that much either. The only other one I was into was The Tudors, but I think that show opened the doors to how these kinds of series can be intriguing and keep you entertained.

I do highly recommend checking it out.
turnbluetogrey on March 29th, 2011 04:11 pm (UTC)
I am sooo watching this! I've played Assassin's Creed III and there was a lot about the Borgias but I totally didn't know about the show until now.

Besides slash + incest + blasphemy + showtime = high chances of total awesomeness!!!
This show is deffinitely getting followed.
Renée: Kahlan. Smile.rogueslayer452 on March 30th, 2011 07:58 am (UTC)
Hee, there's something about having all that blasphemy that makes it even more intriguing. I like shows that push the envelope and have a little bit of controversy (though this is Showtime, lol) and being historical events makes it even more interesting.

Plus, Jeremy Irons. Yum. ;)
cheerful_earl: Gaius and Sixcheerful_earl on March 30th, 2011 06:12 am (UTC)
I SHIP THEM ALREADY FROM THE PICTURES.

I can support incest, apparently. DO WANT THIS SHOW NOW. MUST DOWNLOAD.
Renée: Six/Gaius. Passion.rogueslayer452 on March 30th, 2011 08:01 am (UTC)
THEY ARE TOO CUTE WITH EACH OTHER. EVEN IF YOU KNOW THEY ARE BROTHER AND SISTER AND MAKE IT KNOWN IN THE FIRST SCENE THEY HAVE TOGETHER YOU CAN'T HELP BUT THINK "OMG JUST KISS ALREADY!" BECAUSE SDJF;ASKFDLASK, YEAH. ^__^

I've always had something for incestuous relationships in fiction, which it all started with V.C. Andrews novels that damned me forever in that department. For which I have absolutely no shame whatsoever. Hee.

If you need a download link, here's one. It does premiere this week (April 3rd) though idk how many people have Showtime.

They are irresistible to ship, am I right? They're just too freaking adorable, every single scene. The chemistry, the way they act with each other. Just, love. ♥
