I am writing to protest against The Borgias. In episode 3, Lucretia is raped by her husband in a scene of pure pornographic fiction. Not only did this never happen, but there is evidence that Lucretia saved her husband's life in later years. I therefore conclude that this scene is included to provide vicious thrills to women-hating men in the audience. How truly repulsive & disgusting! Showtime should apologize to its entire female audience and the director should be censured. Inexcusable!

The Borgias Quotes

Woman: You're a cleric?
Cesare: Didn't you notice?
Woman: There was nothing ecclesiastical about you last night.

You will fight like dogs over this corpse I leave, for this throne of Saint Peter's, but it was pure once.

Pope Innocent
