Wildly uneven.
2 June 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I was really excited to see this documentary. After all, some of what the Medici family did was truly awful and they are rather infamous for this. The family managed to gain the highest office on the planet (the Papacy) and yet they also managed to create the Reformation due to their Popes' excesses and public sins--though many of the worst behaviors of these popes are glossed over. One of their family members was instrumental in the murder of between 5000 and 30000 French Huguenots (though this wasn't mentioned). Instead, a lot of episode 1 is about the Renaissance and not so much about the Medicis. And, the same occurs in the final episode--it's mostly about Galileo and not the Medici family. The births, marriages, machinations and the dirt really aren't explored in detail--and a better title of the series might have been "Florence During the Reign of the Medicis". Worth seeing but not as salacious and interesting as I might have hoped!
