I’ve been watching a fair amount of TV series and usually notice if there is a library or a librarian in it. So I decided to note them publicly too. For example I have’ve decided whether I like enough the new series, Da Vinci’s Demons, to keep watching it but I couldn’t help smiling at the depiction of a library at the Medici era’s Florence in episode 2. The hyperactive Da Vinci, with his genius mind did some quick investigating figuring out where to find a book hidden in the library. But my favorite line is the opening of the scene, “Where would one best hide a book.” Then comes the visual answer: the next image shows books in a library.
