Good Historical Fiction
31 December 2016 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

I love period pieces, and this one does not disappoint. Unlike DaVinci's demons, which borderlines on corny, this series has a lot of drama, some sex and a decent accounting of the Medici household. Of course it takes some liberties, but for the most part it is a good solid watch- and the scenery is stunning. The costumes are beautiful and so are the interior sets. The characters seemed a tiny bit flat, but that was more of a writing error than a acting issue. However, most history - shown in the day to day- isn't all sex and roses, so I thought this was well done. I think that the influence of the church should have been examined more closely, as the Popes during that time were not pious men. I look forward to future installments.
