Critic Reviews for Medici: Masters of Florence: Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

[An] engaging new dynastic drama.

November 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Are we really meant to believe that while the Medicis bought a papacy... they never made the connection between money and laundering? Like much else in this middling tale, it doesn't quite wash.

November 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Despite a talented cast, Masters of Florence immediately unravels to become a soap opera set in a Renaissance faire... The series goes too far to manufacture drama when the historical truth is more entertaining than the fiction.

November 27, 2018 | Full Review…

It is a fascinating study of medieval passions and intrigue.

May 31, 2017 | Full Review…

There are outstanding performances from Hoffman and Madden and the pacing of the show means that it improves as it goes on.

November 27, 2018 | Full Review…

As artful as the premise sounds, the story is too dense, wrought with too many players and edited in such a way that it often feels rushed and thrown together.
