Da Vinci's Demons

http://ultraimg.com/images/cjKsT.jpg

A historical fantasy series that tells the story of the great genius in his youth. Join a twenty five-year old Da Vinci as he takes on Renaissance Florence, with a life full of art, invention, sword fights, love and excitement. Can this extraordinary genius live in a world full of confines?

Leonardo Da Vinci is tortured by a gift of superhuman genius. He finds himself in a conflict between truth and lies, religion and reason, past and future. His aspirations are used against him by opposing forces – luring him into a game of seduction where those who despise his intellect need him most. His quest for knowledge nearly becomes his undoing, but Da Vinci’s genius prevails and he emerges as an unstoppable force that lifts an entire era out of darkness and propels it into light. His story becomes a mirror into our own world, calling us all to join his fight to Free the Future. (Source: Starz.com)

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

... well thought I would give the pilot a go and paused the episode at 1minute and 15 seconds to double check Da Vincis birth year because they were smoking tobacco... and apparently about 45 years before it was introduced to Europe.

I know I am nitpicking a bit here about a fantasy series, but 75 seconds is literally the new record for me to get annoyed... (65 of which was the opening credits).

I will go back to watching it now.

UPDATE: And I stopped watching half way through, not for me. For a show about a genius it seemed really dumb.

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

Boring, artsy fartsy and pretentious.

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

what annoyed me most was the overuse of so many different angles in this series. like the legend of Da Vinci and that cave in his youthhood.

i do not know how historically accurate this is, but i doubt he had drawn most of his "warmachines" by the age of 25.
i will give this few more episodes. because CGI was pretty good and the leading chick looks awesome. (tho i hate the female spy shit in medivial age)

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

Why did they have to remind us all the time that they were in Florenz. Everytime they changed the scene, they had to show the church and then go down to the street or whatever.

English is not my first language, but I can follow it most times, but here it got confusing quickly enough.

Do they HAVE to show boobs in every show these days?

Starz is not really known for anything else (one fantastic miniseries and one fantastic show is not enough).

From this comment I know this show isn't for me  smile

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

I still suggest to get your own opinion.

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

Guess I will wait a few more episodes and then check the reviews before getting into this one, nothing good on it from imdb neither. Though premise seemed interesting enough.

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

Renewed.

I guess that Starz's figured out what their audience wants.

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

I just watched the first 2 episodes.. And actually thought it was kinda good..
I know it's isn't historically accurate, but i found it more than a little entertaining.

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

I like it so far.

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

Has potential. I thought first 2 episodes were decent, so will keep watching.  Nice to see Lommy Greenhands still alive after getting stabbed through the neck!

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

+ show spoiler

2014?!?
I have to wait until 2014 to resolve the cliffhanger?

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

So how are people feeling about this show nowadays? Worth picking up?

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

I don't remember anymore when i dropped it, somewhen in season 1 i think.

It was not horrible but i had to much other shows to catch up on. In a hiatus period, it could function as a backup show tho.

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

Lots of swashbuckling and blood/gore this season, dayum!

I think this season's pretty good so far.

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

Finally got around to watching the final season. I like how it ended, that dude that plays Riario always felt like he was overacting a bit, but dang, he went all the way crazy this season. Nice acting chops IMO. And I loved that they brought Vlad back, he's probably my favorite character.

I recommend this to anyone who likes their period shows with a heavy dose of violence.

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

Looks like we might get more of it yet, though long time to wait:

A few months after Starz cancelled their historical fantasy drama, creator David S. Goyer says there’s a possibility for a season four in the future.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Goyer said he has plans for the show to return in a few years for a limited run. The story would follow Da Vinci about 15 years after the close of season three during the “Bonfire of the Vanities.”

Re: Da Vinci's Demons

meh...   we only just started the first season as a filler waiting for faves to return.   Watched 4 eps so far, not a fan but the Dark Side loves it so I will endure.    It's hard to be a fan when you dislike the main character
