Hooked on this STARZ special this week. In this one Leonardo Da Vinci is a sort of McGUyver using his genius to fight baddies of all kinds in the era of the Italian city states. Now the Renaissance is a kind of Italian Heroic age and a lot of the fantastic situations are fictionalized versions of some real deal things; IE Turkish galleys devastating the coastal areas, corrupt Popes, feuding nobles, and endless warfare. The computer generated landscapes are suitably dreamlike and fantastic-kind of like the memories of Italy so many immigrants brought to the New Land with them. In all-well worth a watch, especially if you have connections with the Belle Italia thing!
