Especially of note is a certain scene that involves [[UnusualEuphemism redecorating]] a certain room with a fair amount of paint, to a lively Belgian synthpop tune called Noir Désir (no, not [[Music/NoirDesir that one]]).

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Showrunner Neil Jordan had originally planned for the show to last for four seasons like ''Series/TheTudors''. So when Showtime announced that season 3 would be the last, there was an outcry from fans. Jordan later revealed that he had proposed to make a two hour film to wrap up the storyline and give the show a GrandFinale, but Showtime declined, citing high production costs.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: It was originally supposed to be a film, simply titled ''"Borgia"'', with Creator/ColinFarrell and Creator/ScarlettJohansson as Cesare and Lucrezia, but funding fell through. Director NeilJordan eventually found the money with the Showtime network, and thus a series was born.
