    Has anyone else watched this show? I really like it. The way they bring da vincis thoughts and photographic memory into the scenes is pretty cool. Kinda like how they did it in the da vinci code.
    They describe this show as "historical fantasy". They incorporate da vincis inventions and paintings into the drama storyline. I find it to be an interesting combination. I know I mentioned the da vinci code but it has nothing to do with dan brown at all. I know some of you arent to fond of his books

    I have watched every episode and like the show. The actor that plays Da vinci is damn good. I agree with you the way they have brought his thoughts, inventions, paintings and memory into the scenes is very cool. My only gripe is sometimes they jump around a bit and you wonder if you are watching the correct episode in the order they are supposed to be.

    I watched the pilot and it didn't really interest me. I may go back and watch it at a later time if it ends up being good.

    I meant to give it a shot, but I watch so much fucking TV that I almost don't see my wife anymore. It's really getting sad. :)

    I saw the ads when I was watching spartacus and thought "oh what is this bullshit crap they are throwing at us now..."

    But I watched it and really liked it...

    I was reading online that apparently Da Vinci was uuuuuber ghey and the womanizing is upsetting historians....Well...I have no problem with the womanizing...

    That's true, he was gay. IIRC he was even arrested for sodomy.

    Well they do talk about his gheyness and even have him kiss a dude who had a relationship with. They acknowledge it but they dont show it because they know man on man action doesnt sell.
