      Intriguingly original

      With such a glut of period pieces consuming the airwaves as of late, David Goyer's Da Vinci's Demons is a fresh change of pace and worth a watch. As with many of the made for premium cable shows, there seems to be a need to have a weekly R rating quota for every episode that is so gratuitous it sometimes takes away from a very strong story continuity. Other than that, the characters are rich in their depth from the heroic to the sinister. Not having the Starz network, I bought the first season on a whim and easily found myself caught up until the end. ...now I gotta wait until the next boxed set.

      Wonderful Da Vinci for the ages

      This show which has now started its second season is a gem. It mixes the history of Europe during the times of the Medici with the wonderful eccentricities of a "what if" Leonardo Da Vinci. He is very remeniscent of the BBC Sherlock with his almost autistic reasoning but with a lust and passion for knowledge and women. The fictional story that ebbs and flows through the short eight episodes is genius but that is David Goyer who has been involved in quite a few modern tales such as Blade II , Dark City, The Dark Knight Trilogy and Man of Steel . highly recommended .

      Who says a historical drama must be accurate?

      If you want that, watch a documentary. Even then, "facts" can be in question or in dispute. Just so long as what is presented does not stray too outrageously from fact. Another reviewer lamented about how our schools are mixing fact & fiction, and asked "shouldn't our TVs not lie to us?" Well, TV has mostly lied to everyone since signals began broadcasting entertainment on it. It's called "fiction". I enjoy the dramatic take on characters like Da Vinci from this series, because I didn't take it too seriously. It's entertainment!

      There was some reservations on how anyone would attempt to play Leonardo Da Vinci in a running TV series. However, once you accept Tom Riley to play one of the most renown geniuses that ever lived, it becomes entertaining. Riley plays Da Vinci with some tongue-in cheek that make it more enjoyable to watch. Really surprising how well the first season was shot, with a very good supporting cast. One of the better Starz made-for-TV series.

      While I have Starz on DirectTV, and I stumbled across this program, I just couldn't wait to see what I missed. So started again by buying the DVD of Season 1. Watched it, and watched it again, and am drooling for Season 2. Truly UNIQUE attempt at taking a historical figure and creating an alternative time/story line. IF your a Game of Thrones fan; you'll enjoy DaVinci as it appears more realistic than the fantasy of "Thrones".

      An Engaging Fantasy with Historical Backbone

      I bought this Bluray because I was looking for something new to watch, and had heard about this show and it seemed like something I might enjoy, which I very much did! It's definitely a product of the success of shows like Game of Thrones, but it charts it's own course and is in no way a copy. I'm a fan of historical fiction, so this is something that definitely fits right in that category. Looking forward to season 2!

      This series is definitely one of my top 3 favorite shows just because of how creative it is. A well written story line, well acted and thoroughly entertaining take on the life and times of Leonardo Da Vinci with a story line that is completely made up, but who cares!!! The blue ray disc has excellent audio & video quality presented in a nice quality 3 disc package. I can't wait for season 2 to come out.

      Strange but entertaining

      Witty, fast paced, riddled with riddles and very clever. Don't expect "History Channel's" accuracy - this is entertainment around Da Vinci's life and achievements. No more, no less. Still, I just can't stress how deep and clever this series manages to be. Expect nudity, erotic moments, gay relationships and violence - a formula Starz is very familiar with (at least) since Spartacus.
