1st Logo (October 7, 1998-January 19, 2000)

Nickname: "The Storm"

Logo: Against sped-up, live-action footage of storm clouds forming, we see a bolt of lightning strike across the screen, forming the gold, shadowed text


in a Times New Roman-like font; the text shakes a bit after appearing. The text's shadow shines.

FX/SFX: The storm clouds, the lightning forming the logo.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the show.

Availability: Seen on the first two seasons of Da Vinci's Inquest.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (October 4, 2000-December 10, 2007)

Nickname: "The Smooth Bassist"

Logo: We see B&W footage of a silhouette of a face, followed by two overhead shots of a bassist, wearing a suit and fedora, spinning his double bass before stopping it in it's normal position. Over all this, the white text


appears via a stabilization effect.

FX/SFX: The footage, the text appearing.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the show.

Availability: Seen on Da Vinci's Inquest starting with season 3, Intelligence, Da Vinci's City Hall, and The Handler.

Editor's Note: First time viewers of this logo may be startled by the unusual concept of it, but it's harmless.

3rd Logo (October 14, 2015-December 7, 2016)

Logo: We see live footage of horse racing, as the camera moves to the right following the action, over this on white text


appear as soon as the logo starts.

FX/SFX: The footage.

Music/Sounds: The sound of a bell, as well as horses running.

Availability: Seen on The Romeo Section.

Editor's Note: None.
