The Da Vinci Load

Since Starz’ Spartacus series is coming to an end, the channel finds itself in dire need of a historical drama they can pack with shit-tons of sex, nudity and violence. This is the only reason I can think of why Da Vinci’s Demons exists, a show which posits the Renaissance genius as a leather-coat-wearing badass who loves the ladies while things around him explode. It’ll still have a hard time matching Spartacus in the tits and blood categories — Spartacus having been birthed from the id of a 12-year-old boy — but it does look like it’s going to give it the old Vinci try. Although if Leonardo reveals he’s a Delta Knight at any point during the series, I’m blowing up Starz HQ. (Via Blastr)
