Wednesday, 8.30pm, SoHo This is a nice opportunity to catch up on this lush historical series which, when it began, its producers called The Tudors meets The Sopranos, a point underscored by its promo line: ‘‘ The original crime family’’. ( The Godfather author Mario Puzo worked on a novel about the Borgias, too, calling them the Corleones of the Renaissance). Fluently written and directed by filmmaker Neil Jordan ( The Crying Game), this big-budget US cable show delivered what it promised: a superlatively made costume drama filled with sex, malice, murder and betrayal. SoHo is repeating season two from tonight, with the third season at present shooting in Hungary to premiere next year. Jeremy Irons returns in his Golden Globe-nominated role as Rodrigo, the cunning, manipulative Borgia patriarch who became Pope Alexander VI.
