More great reviews have appeared online for Da Vinci's Demons.
Thank goodness for the Renaissance and Leonardo. These bring moments of transcendent beauty to the series, which was written by David S. Goyer, and is laced with aha moments of glorious invention and the scent of mysticism. WSJ
What’s different about “Demons” is the transformation of Leonardo into a latter-day Sherlock, a notion that’s nonsensical but also engaging and funny. Poking around crime scenes in his jerkin and breeches, rigging a Renaissance version of an ultraviolet light, this Florentine detective will appeal to fans of Derek Jacobi in the old British series “Cadfael” or Sean Connery in “The Name of the Rose.”
Tom Riley, the actor playing Leonardo, is not at the Jacobi or Connery level, but he’s perfectly credible as the headstrong polymath and adventurer. NYT
It's great fun, romping through Renaissance Florence and Tuscany on the tunictails of Leonardo (Tom Riley) as he develops his talent for portraiture and engineering. LAT
Riley takes the role of Leonardo for a real joyride, giving “Da Vinci’s Demons” a spark of invention it would otherwise lack. Washington Post
Da Vinci’s Demons, an ambitiously preposterous, extremely enjoyable new series from Starz that not only thrusts the great artist into fight scenes, but surrounds him with a conspiracy that plays like a Florentine version of, yes, The Da Vinci Code. Created by writer-director David S. Goyer, who wrote the stories for the Dark Knight movies with Christopher Nolan, it stars British actor Tom Riley as the 25-year-old Leonardo, burningly brilliant bastard son of a state councillor, whose smart-alecky manner (and heretical thinking) constantly gets him into trouble.
