Da Vinci’s Demons – My rating: 8.5/10

DaVincisDemons Starz has adapted the untold story of Leonardo Da Vinci as a series. It tells of his genius during his early years in Renaissance Florence. You may not know this, but at the time this story begins, Da Vinci, brilliantly played by  Tom Riley, was a 25-year old artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer, scientist, architect, engineer and idealist, who struggled to live within the confines of his own reality and time. Da Vinci not only saw the future, but started to invent it.  Famous for his art work, Da Vinci was also responsible for the invention of the Helicopter.  To read more about his inventions go to:  http://www.da-vinci-inventions.com/.  Aside from his inventions, Hollywood is displaying him as a swashbuckling, romeo, wheeler dealer who’s all over the place.  In fact, one of his demons, finds him a bastard son who yearns for legitimacy with his father. There is so much deceit going on, one really has to keep both eyes and both ears glued to the TV so that you won’t miss anything.  Da Vinci’s Demons is fast paced and about life, Da Vinci’s life.  Your head will be wheeling and you may think your eyes are decieving you but it’s all really happening and you might even be entertained.  I like the series and urge you to check it out.   Da Vinci’s Demons is currently airing on Starz.
