The Tudors

Movie Fan
The Tudors is a ten-part mini-series on Showtime depicting the reign and marriages of King Henry VIII from the creator of the Academy Award-winning Elizabeth. It stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who won a Golden Globe for his performance as Elvis Presley in the 2005 CBS telefilm and co-starred in Match Point, Mission: Impossible III, and Vanity Fair. Jeremy Northam, Sam Neill, and Gabrielle Anwar also star.

I have no idea how faithful this mini-series is to historical fact, but it is highly entertaining and involving... a well-crafted ride offering a potent blend of violence, sexual tension, and political intrigue. It premieres April 1st at 10pm EST on Showtime. Episodes one and two can be watched in their entirety online herehttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt0758790/videosites.

Highly recommended.

I really wanted to watch, but we don't have Showtime and I wasn't going to pay for it just to watch one series. I'll definitely catch it when the first season hits DVD. :yay:

As one who is well read on the era, and the Tudor monarchy, I can say without a doubt there is a great deal of artistic Liberty taken in production of this period program. To thei credit, that have made it more interesting. Not that it was needed, but they have created a program that will suck you in with intrigue, deciept, magnificent costume, and beautiful sets and surroundings.

If you like The Tudors, you'll love Outlander, on starz and Netflix.

I figured there had been some poetic license taken, but the production itself is so opulent and the story so compelling I find myself immersed in the world they created.

I will definitely check Outlander out. Hopefully the first seasons are out on DVD as I don't have Starz or Netflix.

Yes. Season 1 parts 1 and 2, and season 2. I streamed it as soon as it was a available, the. Bought the DVD's as soon as I saw them in the store. Outlander is my new addiction. I've also read the 8 (soon to be 9) books. 2 or 3 times each. Really looking forward to number 9 in the Outlander series. There is also a John Gray series, one of the characters in Outlander. There is a new release I'm getting for Christmas-The Virgins. Whereas the Outlander series is mostly about, and through the eyes of Claire, The Virgins is a pre-qual about Jamie and Ian.

Thanks! I just reserved the first two seasons of Outlanders at the library and can hardly wait for them to come in. I am going to start on the books, too, once I finish the DVDs and also the other stories you mentioned. :yay:
