Did anyone catch the first episode which aired Friday night on Starz? I'm not sure what I think yet. It's a take on DaVinci's early career and in the series Leonardo is in his 20's and trying to make a name for himself. I don't know much about the facts of DaVinci's personal history, so I don't know if this is total fiction or based in any real fact. In it he is the bastard son of a nobleman and he never knew his mother (apparently there's a story there). He is contacted by a Turkish man looking for some ancient text that, coincidentally the Vatican is also looking for and intrigue abounds. There is also a smattering of his inventions and famous drawings which is kind of cool. It might be a tad trippy for me with all the visions, opium smoking and mystical stuff. I'll give episode 2 a try at least . . .

I haven't but I'd like to, I don't have Starz. I figure I'll catch it on Netflix or some such.
