This show reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Zorro discovers his enemy is the Scarlet Pimpernel and shoots him with a nine. The show is so glossy and hip it's like a giant sub or ham I can't stop eating. It entertains yet is so loose with history it must burn holes in the viewers brain, much like syphilis must have done in Leonardo's day. That said! I must continue to watch with a mix of amazement and gobsmacked disbelief!

Again with the old genius involuntary hand twitching when generating an intellectual epiphany or solution. See more genius hand twitching in the movie Hypnotic or JLM's Sherlock in Elementary or numerous other movies where a Eureka moment is generated by genius character.
