Da Vinci's Demons: if you don’t have Starz, this show is one hell of a reason to pick it up

A recent Top 25 Television Shows of 2014 list, by Inglorious Fiction, has appeared in online searches. Da Vinci's Demons comes in at number 9, with some lovely words to say about the show and the cast.

If there was one show that ensured we would keep purchasing Starz, it’s this one. There are so many things we love about Da Vinci’s Demons, and while it may not be the most historically accurate show, as a period piece, we can’t get enough of it. Tom Riley stars as Leonardo Da Vinci. He is curious and he makes the world look as if it is filled with wonder. At the same time, he is tormented by his place in the world, and the expectations that he has in it. In a place, such as Florence, Italy that thrives on their own version of religion, Da Vinci is an artist and a freethinker. He has a great mind, despite being troubled by the weapons that he is able to build to destroy the world he so loves.

Da Vinci's Demons: season 2 surpasses all expectations

While we still have no Da Vinci's Demons season 3 trailer, nor a season 3 air date, at least Da Vinci's Demons season 2 still generates some great international reviews, to keep fans going during this depressing, Da Vinci deficient downtime. If only we were Outlander fans - Starz are filling their downtime gap with lots of promos and videos! 

A new review for season 2 has been shared on this Dutch website - please excuse the translation, although they must have missed the part where Tom's Leonardo is the lead...

The enthusiasm continues, but increases exponentially. The second season of Da Vinci's Demons surpasses all expectations we had of the series and a second season in general. The narrative scale is not simply doubled, but increased and epic. We went on tour in season 1 to Transylvania, in season 2 we go to the end of the world and back. Florence remains central, but is nothing more than a chess piece, a pawn in the big picture. The emotional and rational development of all the main characters is phenomenal.
