Starz Marathons Da Vinci’s Demons for Memorial Day Weekend!


As I noted in my review of Da Vinci’s Demons (Starz, Fridays, 10/9C), it is ‘a fast-paced hour that mixes all the pomp and grandeur of historical fiction with a sense of joyousness and fun that makes (it) a genuinely unique experience. A+’

For the Memorial Day Weekend, Starz is giving the series a week off to allow viewers an episode or two to catch up – with a ‘Catch Up Marathon’ of the show’s last three episodes on Friday – and new viewers to come aboard with a marathon of three of the show’s six eps to date on Saturday and Sunday. Follow the jump for details.

The series will resume its run with a new ep, The Hierofant, on May 31st.
