Post Da Vinci's Demons
Not likely too many people have seen this BBC Worldwide Production on Starz Network but I kind of enjoyed it the 2 seasons of it so far. It is an odd show as it is more of a fantasy series as if Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote the history of Renaissance Florence,Leonardo Da Vinci and Lorenzo De Medici like it was a pulp sword and sorcery novel(with a lot of gratuitous nudity). Da Vinci here is a young virile Indiana Jones,Sherlock Holmes,John Carter,Stephen Hawking and MacGyver rolled into one. He is in race to discover the lost mystical holy grail like Book of Leaves before his nemesis Pope Sixtus or other dark forces find it first using all his inventions at his disposal. It is a hard series to put down as it at points historical like the Borgias or Spartacus but at other times as goofy as Raiders of the Lost Ark or Knight's Tale. Not always perfect but definitely different.
