Awaiting new season, but would appreciate more historical adherence
19 March 2017 | by svetlana-43178See all my reviews

The show was captivating, I watched the entire season in 3-4 days. Yet I do think there was too much soap opera there: when you watch a historical show like this, I think sticking more to the history, the actual events would be much better than showing some legs and sex. This is the mid-15th Century, yet it seems to have glossed over or completely ignored some of the most important things happening in Europe then: the Black Plague wiped out a quarter of Europe - yet it is only briefly mentioned; the Inquisition that had been gutting Europe for 300 years prior - and 400 years after - is not mentioned at all. The Crusades, the famines, the civil wars in Europe (with the influx of refugees everywhere including Florence) - Nada. Not to mention the décor that is totally out of place - Fleur De Lis wall coverings? That'd be French, not Florence. The beautiful baroque-ish other wall coverings? Knock-offs of Fortuny, circa mid-19'th century (doubt they had the real thing, that costs $400/yard to the trade), not 15th Century Florence. Many other historical mishaps. That DID spoil the show a lot for me. Those were easily researched and easily implemented things, yet they didn't seem to care that much.
