  1. Not my thing, I'll pass on this one. I did love Freddie Highmore in the amazing TV show Bates Motel, though! <3

    1. You do know Leo will be portrayed as openly gay in this one? :)

  2. When we were in Italy, we went to the tiny village of Vinci to see the house where Leonardo was born. Glad to read he'll be accurately portrayed as gay in this new series. Enough straight-washing!

    1. That is how the series was originally announced, I hope they will stick to it, but I don't think they will focus on it. Even in Da Vinci's Demons I remember Leo had a hot gay fling with a young guy and then Tom Riley played a gay fashion designer in The Collection period set series too.

  3. I am definitely curious to learn more about him, his past, his demons, his journey as a genius. I remember visiting the place where he lived during the last years of his life in Amboise, Loire Valley in France.

    1. Hope the series won't disappoint us, I wish they changed Aidan a bit, he always looks the same in all roles and he already played a painter in Desperate Romantics, he is not a very versatile actor so he needed a beard or shorter hair.

  4. I think my comments disappeared and you have weird advertisements in between the comments that lingered. It’s the first I’ve seen this on your page.

    1. Yes, I turned on automatic ads on my GoogleAds accoun t to increase my revenue. Instead of complaining, missy, you should sometimes click on ads to feed poor Dezzy LOL

    2. Lol! I’m convinced they ate my original comment so the ads didn’t like me very much. It’s much better on a computer, but on my cell phone, one Disney ad wouldn’t even let me scroll!

    3. I don't like the sound of that, they said these ads are mobile friendly. I've no say in it, Google decides where to place them so that they would be more visible. Keep me informed if it continues bothering you like that.
