Season 1, audacious and inventive, fired the imagination. Season 2 is even better. Bloody is the power struggle between Florence and Rome (Naples and Constantinople in due course involved). Leonardo is dangerously caught up in it all, frequently lucky to escape with his life. Meanwhile the mystical Sons of Mithras fear the erratic genius may cause a "straying from the course of time". What if he locates the Book of Leaves and sets everything off balance? This could lead to great glory or unmitigated disaster. Warily they monitor all he does.

Ten episodes of around 55 minutes. No bonuses, alas. Plenty of excitement, though, amid dazzling special effects. Easily the actors could be dwarfed by them all, but in fact they rise to the challenge. Especially impressive is Tom Riley as Leonardo - perhaps not a hero in traditional mode, brilliant brain his main weapon (although not to be under-estimated with a sword). Sex, gory deaths, great spectacle abound, not to mention much humour (Lee Boardman in particular very funny). Often with tongue in cheek, the series shows how Leonardo came to pioneer blood transfusions, amplified sound, submarines, parachutes and a propelled cart.

Admittedly at times events are a little hard to follow (lots going on in strong interweaving storylines), but all the way through there is much to praise. Rumours say the third season will be the last. May it prove the best yet!

Well. First of all do NOT expect an historical treatise on the life and times of Leonardo Da Vinci. DO expect a bawdy and irreverent story of blood, sex and hedonism. Throw in some brilliant acting, some really cringe-making dialogue and fine FX and you have a thoroughly watchable series. As good as series 1....IMHO no, but don't let that put you off.
If strong language and incessant references to sodomy put you off, best stay away, but otherwise suspend belief and enjoy. I just hope the writers know what they are doing with Series 3.
ETA Dec 2015: It seems they did, and although the gore is knee-deep at time they kept the pace up. Now...will I live to see the Series 3 DVD released?
