Trivia

According to executive producer David S. Goyer the title sequence was planned to run thirty seconds and Bear McCreary created the title theme accordingly. However, after Goyer heard the music, he asked McCreary create a longer version of the theme. The producers then decided to use this longer theme and to change the title sequence to accommodate the longer theme music (this required some already locked episodes to be reedited to fit the time frame).

Goofs

The show depicts Giuliano de Medici's son as being the illegitimate result of a one night stand, with Giuliano only discovering he was to be a father as he lay dying. In reality, Giuliano's son, the future Pope Clement VII, was born only a month after Giuliano died. His parents were considered to have been betrothed and so Giuliano's son was considered legitimate.

Stunning fantasy based upon a brilliant man
14 April 2013 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

First of all, I would like tot say that Starz did a magnificent job creating a fantasy series (which is essentially what it is. Nowhere is actually claimed that this is supposedly a historically accurate retelling of Da Vinci's life) based upon the life of one greatest men to live.

Now, while it isn't even close to the actual historical Da Vinci, it doesn't mean that you should write off this series as drab. On the contrary, there is nothing wrong with basing yourself off history and build your own story around that. If you want historical accuracy, please go watch a bloody documentary. If you go into this series expecting a history lesson (and then complain about the fact that it isn't), you might as well walk around with a sign reading "I am an imbecile". It is classified and described under the genre "historical fantasy" for a reason.

Further more The setting and the costume works is absolutely beautiful, showing Florence's extravagance in an exaggerated manner. The CGI, just like Starz' previous series, Spartacus, was in some places quite jarring to say the least. A good example of that would be the helicopter shot near the beginning where guards are marching across a courtyard. But that is negligible in my personal opinion. While I do like the more extravagant, arrogant Da Vinci, none the less I find his performance sub par in certain scenes. Especially those where he is acting out a scene of pain, or fear. It isn't convincing enough, it is once again far too exaggerated. But then again, that seems to be the entire theme of this series. The mythological elements worked into the series is interesting to me, it adds a magical aura to the storyline, to the point where it is the the stereotypical thing of "You are destined, fate has chosen you.", which doesn't make it bad, but it isn't original either.

I'm looking forward to where this series is heading. It has some great potential. Although it is quite sad that people are clenching their behinds so hard because it isn't a documentary, considering the series is listed as a historical FANTASY. Learn to read, then think, then form your opinion, then share it.
