great series
11 December 2016 | by adencraneSee all my reviews

I think this is a great series for entertainment and history....It did inspire me to do more research on the Medici family. I discovered the series isn't entirely historically accurate but then we are talking about events that happened or not over 500 yrs ago..The setting is lush and is everything required for the series to be believable...The actors are all incredible and convincing...even Dustin Hoffman!!The soundtrack is pretty good despite the more modern beats ..I think they should have included more period music. The soundtrack is a bit repetitive but that is my main criticism!The intrigues are complicated by historical flashbacks which takes getting used to but all in all i cant wait for the second season!
