A major improvement over the first episode....
2 June 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When this episode began, it talked not only of the arts of the Renaissance but of violence and destruction. This interested me a lot, as episode 1 was incredibly dull compared to what I expected. After all, the Medici family is infamous for their evil ways--producing some horrible popes and a blood-thirsty French queen. Perhaps this one will prove to be more interesting and exciting.

This show is mostly about Lorenzo Medici--the most famous and infamous member of the family (cool). Upon his death came the brief rule of Savonarola. Both these topics are great, as they are MUCH more exciting that the stuff in part one! Among the things discussed is a bloody assassination of one of the Medici in church on Easter Sunday! And, as the episode ends, Savanarola and his followers begin throwing many of the decadent trappings of the Renaissance into giant bonfires--little did he know (in part three) that he, too, would be hurled into a bonfire! Overall, this show was interesting throughout and represented more of what historians think of when the Medicis are mentioned today. A very good episode.
