Witty, fast paced, riddled with riddles and very clever.
Not as grim as "Game of Thrones": it actually reminds me of "Shakespeare in love" sometimes, but in a good way.
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.

If that's not enough to get you interested the mix of history and fiction is excellent. The use of da Vinci's drawings add to the visual representation.

Word of warning: I recommended this to a coworker who also likes GoT and TrueBlood and he (and his wife) were really turned off by the homosexual plot lines. For others it may be a selling point. For historians it simply happened.

Hopefully the set will include a making of 30 min that aired on British TV, it adds some background and perspective (two things da Vinci would have appreciated). One thing David Goyer noted was an intetional choice to cast British actors who American's may not be as familiar with.

And so another extended series based on historical data begins and oddly enough the other series set in the same time frame, THE BORGIAS, is similar to the decadent feeling established by the first episode of DA VINCI'S DEMONS. The writers and directors of this series of eight episodes vary from week to week and so we may have a different opinion with each passing episode. Is the series worth watching? It seems so, if the antics that occur in episode 1 are indicative of the direction.

After a rather hilarious opening with the fully nude Hugh Bonneville and his male consort preparing to face a new day worried about bowels and other matters - a brief setting as Bonnevile is instantly murdered - we move into Renaissance Florence where the 25 year old artist/engineer/wizard genius Leonardo Da Vinci (Tom Riley) is working on yet another amazing use of flight with his friends Nico (Eros Vlahos) and Zoroaster (Gregg Chillin) and the amiable Verrocchio (Alan Corduner). The young Da Vinci is a lover (with the Medici mistress Lucrezia played by Laura Haddock) because of his talents at portraiture and cunning, an idealist who believes anything is possible if you just think of it. He mixes with the court of the Medicis (Elliot Cowan is Lorenzo) and struggles with his sense of dark demons brought into focus by his visit with Al-Rahim (Alexander Siddig), and is always cognizant of the fact that he is tortured by `a gift of superhuman genius, a heretic intent on exposing the lies of religion, an insurgent seeking to subvert an elitist society, a bastard son who yearns for legitimacy with his father. He finds himself in the midst of a storm that has been brewing for centuries - a conflict between truth and lies, religion and reason, past and future.

I'm quite conflicted about this show. I watched it all, and for the most part enjoyed it, but definitely not without reservations. Let's get to it!

The Good:
- Premise: Da Vinci is one of history's most interesting characters... and frankly it's a brave choice. The basic idea is that the Da Vinci we all know from history is indeed an artist/inventor/genius, but also deeply involved in the political intrigue of the day. Given how little is known about his early day-to-day life, it makes sense that they've expanded his role a bit to incorporate him into known political happenings of late 15-century Florence. It's an interesting period most people aren't very familiar with, so I'm all about it.

- Over-Arching Plot: Why not just say "plot"? Because sadly plot will be featured in "The Bad" section below. However, the overall plot, the story of what drives Leonardo, I find somewhat compelling. Leonardo is essentially looking for his long-lost mother, who he can't remember at all. This search leads him in some super-natural directions and his quest for his mother becomes intertwined with a quest for the "book of leaves"... which I assume will be explained later. This is all fantasy of course, but I like it. No problems at all here.

- Production: I'm kind of lumping a lot of smaller things in here. I think the acting was just fine and the casting was well done. I even like the opening music, which occasionally forces its way into the episode. When trying to illustrate moments of genius they basically start drawing things on the screen in the style of Leonardo's famous etchings. This is a little weird, but certainly unique and it grew on me.

The Bad:
- Plot: I'm referring more to the episode-by-episode plot.

This might be my new favorite show ever. Complex and unpredictable story arcs, well-rounded charismatic characters, mysticism and science - it's completely awesome. Don't expect historical accuracy - this is fantasy in historical context. There is a lot of exciting gratuitous violence and some torture (if you watch season 2 they REALLY amp up the torture) and tons of completely unnecessary but very entertaining sexytimes between beautiful people. Probably NOT appropriate for your seventh-grader who'e studying Leonardo DaVinci though.
