Needs to be more documentary and less reality TV
20 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me start out by saying that Leonardo da Vinci is one of my heroes, and that I hate reality TV. I've only seen one episode(the siege ladder), and I'm not watching any more.

Reality TV always follows the same formula. Get a bunch of narcissistic type-A personalities together, give them a project, then while the project progresses, do one-on-one interviews with them to let them snipe at each other while they state the blindingly obvious. Every once in a while, throw in a curve ball, like in this case, a man named Flash who has done more drugs than Robert Downey Jr. and Keith Richards combined, has a counterproductive seat-of-the-pants ethic toward carpentry, and when he doesn't get his way, complains loudly and annoyingly. That is why I hate reality TV. Plus, this isn't even reality. In reality, Flash would have been fired within an hour.

Personally, I have no idea why this show has to be an hour long. I wish they would cut out the backbiting and just show the carpentry in 30 minutes. I also wish they'd show more of the history of da Vinci, because that's who the show is ultimately about, not a bunch of knuckleheads who need rehab and anger management.
