On a day packed with season finales, two wildly different series stand out: Lena Dunham’s increasingly brilliant Girls on HBO (for a preview, click here) and the extravagant Neil Jordan-created Showtime drama, The Borgias, which ends its glorious and gory second season tonight with one of its most affecting episodes -- and an ending that would feel unresolved if we didn’t know a third round is in the works.

Showtime’s best series don’t have much room for the warm and fuzzies – that’s one thing I like about them, from The Borgias and Homeland (both returning for second seasons, The Borgias sooner and Homeland later) to dark comedies like Shameless, which begins its second season on Sunday. Premiering after Shameless is the new House of Lies, with Don Cheadle as a high-powered management consultant so cynical and manipulative he makes the series’ title sound understated. You can see both shows and sample other series and films during the free Showtime weekend, from Friday through Sunday.
