TV preview: 'Da Vinci' debut is sort of a mess
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The new Starz drama "Da Vinci's Demons'' might turn out to be a decent series, although you'd never know if from the debut — a confusing mess more notable for the full-frontal nudity than the plot. But Episode 2 of this series that casts Leonardo Da Vinci as a genius/action hero is more coherent and considerably more promising.
