Tv Season Info

In Season 2, intrepid adventurer-inventor Leonardo Da Vinci (Tom Riley) travels all over the known world (and some of the not-so-known) in his quest for the mystical Book of Leaves. In the season opener, the Pazzis strike, leaving the fate of Florence in Leonardo's hands. After restoring order to the beset city, Leonardo's quest leads him to attempt a crossing of the Atlantic, needless to say without maps. While he's out of the picture, the Medicis do their best (or worst) to establish themselves. When he reaches the fabled Vault of Heaven, Leonardo is surprised to discover that his mother, too, had once undertaken a mission to find the Book. Upon his return to Florence, he finds an iron-fisted Duke Federico (Vincent Riotta) ruling his subjects, and further bad news appears on the horizon as an armada of Ottoman warships arrives and all of Italy braces for the attack.

This felt like a learning season, like they were scraping against their budget and wanted to see how big and wild they could take it. I get the feeling they learned their lessons, and figured out more of the story they want to tell.

Da Vinci's Demons is still a whole heck of a lot of fun -- and for a premium cable period piece airing on a Saturday night, fun is all you can ask for.

Let yourself be swept away into the fantastical world David S. Goyer has created and I guarantee you will enjoy the show.

What it lacked in thematic substance it more than made up for in content and did a great job of building on the energy of the conclusion to Season 1 while also setting up the journey for Season 2.

Once you learn to go with the Da Vinci is a superhero flow, the show is an adventure lover's paradise.
