News & Interviews for Da Vinci's Demons: Season 1
Leonardo may not like what Starz has turned him into, but you probably won't mind this joy ride.
Since the show is inappropriate for the age group that might find it intriguing, the producers may be hoping to draw stupider adults. They're welcome to them.
Its real appeal should be to viewers who like their TV history entertainingly out there.
Da Vinci's Demons, though decidedly anachronistic and self-satisfied at times, is quite diverting.
Da Vinci's Demons halfway succeeds on the strength of its vigorous, devil-may-care approach, even if it's also almost thoroughly preposterous in terms of the central character's deductive powers and abilities.
Still manages to score major point for its gleeful, headlong rush of I-don't-give-a-shit-ness. Call it the joy of ridiculousness. Call it the audacity of awesomeness.
Tom Riley is miscast-too smart-alecky and brash. And he reminds me of American Idol winner David Cook. Distracting, no?
If Season 2 weren't already guaranteed, it might be fair to say this was a bad season because there was a lot of build up but little payoff. But knowing they'll be more makes the first eight episodes feel like a first chapter, and that's satisfying.
There's enough on the table to maybe convince those left skeptical by the premiere to stick around and see where it goes.
Ballsy, lavishly produced and, if you can get past its fast-and-loose approach to history, huge fun.
Audience Reviews for Da Vinci's Demons: Season 1
Oct 17, 2020Tooo ridiculous, at one point it became really impossible to swallow.
Aug 14, 2020Good season. It shows the rise of Da Vinci and his consolidation as an "artist". I just feel sorry for not following the historical truth. I advise viewing.
Aug 06, 2020The first season in general is pleasant. In some parts the CGI is notable, and the sword fights are not very good, but the show manages to compensate us for the performances, script, violence and absurd constructions but at the same time spectacular of da Vinci. With this I advise you to see, once you are looking for historical series !!!
Jul 22, 201684% It might take some time to become interesting and its nude scenes are not as energetic as Starz's own Spartacus, but Da Vinci's Demons is definitely entertaining.
Jan 21, 2016A great idea and a good cast but needs a little polishing but I see good things enough to warrant a 2nd season
Sep 22, 2015Witty, ambitious and imaginative. This show takes about 25% factual stimulus from Da Vincis light and allow it to fold into a mysterious, intriguing and exciting journey.
Jun 06, 2015best show out right now.
Apr 10, 2015Although visually exciting I found the show kind of pompous. It seems it really wants to be "Game of Thrones"...but its not.
Jan 31, 2015this show can suck my dick
Dec 30, 2014It took a while to get into this series but by the end I really enjoyed. Looking forward to Series 2 which promises to be even better.
