The Tudors

Given my love for historical fiction and period films, I can't believe it has taken me so long to watch The Tudors.

I'm three discs into the first season and the rest of season one and two are lined up in my Netflix queue.

The opulence of the costumes is to die for:

Since this is a Showtime program, there is a lot more sexy time than most historic dramas portray, but I guess since it's a historical fact that Henry VIII enjoyed the ladies, it's probably not that much of a stretch of the imagination.

Is anyone else a fan of the series? I can't wait to watch more.

I love this show. It is a total guilty pleasure. I cannot wait until the new season starts.

I've been watching it. I finished the first season and I'm kind of working on season 2. Henry pisses me off sometimes with his incredibly selfish childish behavior and the people that pay because of it. Oh well, it's just a show...

It is a great show. I don't have Showtime, so I have to make do with the DVDs! I am about to start season two, though, and I'm so excited!

Erin...I totally agree about Henry. He is such a selfish person. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is the perfect actor to play this role...he's amazingly handsome, but he never really seems kind. He has a naturally cold demeanor.

I discovered the Tudors on OnDemand when I was sick.

I loooooooove it! I immediately thought you would love it too. I'm glad you do

Xtina--when I heard that you were hooked on the show, that was the final push I needed to sit down and watch it. I figured that if you were in to it, I would be too.
