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).

Excellent Show for strictly entertainment
27 April 2013 | by Joe AdemsSee all my reviews

I think this show was done very well, and I normally don't leave reviews on shows. BUT seeing how many negative comments it got kinda annoyed me. Reason being is this show is not a discovery channel special on De Vinci's life. It's clearly a fantasized presentation of his life. I think it's unfair to the writers, producers, actors and everyone else who partook in creating this show to be brought down like this because it wasn't historically accurate. It never claimed to be, and if that's what people think they're getting when starting this series, they should think again and maybe picking up a book instead. For all those who are looking for an interesting, and fresh show to get into I'd definitely recommend it. Though if you're gonna get into this show with a mindset of being a hardcore critique then you should just move on to something else.
