This free preview is for promoting the 2nd season of Da Vinci's Demons, which premieres Friday and no one here watches.

You can stream the entire 1st season right here for free (no strings attached) It's 8 episodes.

Black Sails season 1 just finished it's 8 episode run for those who may be interested (if all 8 episodes are available on demand for this preview)

FWIW, the second season of Da Vinci's Demon's will actually air on Saturday's (season 1 aired Friday's). I thought the first season was mildly enjoyable -- just be prepared to check your historical accuracy hat at the door.

I'm taking good advantage of this--my DVR will be working overtime this weekend.

Exactly. Well, not regarding Grown Ups 2 specifically, but basically the whole channel. In the days of Boss and Spartacus, it was worth having (or at least sampling for free), but now there's nothing I really want to check out. For awhile I thought it might be Black Sails, but not based on seeing the threads here. Currently, I'm not aware of a single thing I should sample during this preview weekend.

I'll probably check out White House Down at some point, but otherwise there is not much for me to make a point of watching. It will provide some good background noise, though.

I watched it (I was blogging it for another site so I had to). It wasn't very good. No plans on watching Season 2.

No free trial with Charyer in case anyone was about to check.
