    After all, the show is called The TudorS---and Mary and Elizabeth would certainly fall in that group! Who knows....

    I still have to watch this season and hope I can still find it online. I saw the dream sequence and I liked it. Henry Cavill is the hotness. Natalie Dormer/Anne ruled on that show.

    That is a good book, but try to read the Philippa Gregory books,
    The Other Boleyn Girl ( Mary and Anne Boleyn), The Boleyn Inheritance ( Anne of Cleves, Katherine Howard and Jane Rockford (George Boleynn's widow), and The Constant Princess ( Katherine of Aragon). They are fiction, but full of actual historical detail and really helped me understand The Tudors easier. They explain the politics and history surrounding Henry VIII and his passion for a son.

    ps, the movie The Other Boleyn Girl was almost unrecognizable compared to the book.
    I don't object to the concept of a deity, but I'm baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance.

    I did listen to the audio of TOBG and enjoyed it. I couldn't get into any of her other books though. I am going to try her newest "The Red Queen" as I find Henry's grandmother, Margaret Beaufort, facinating. I did try "the White Queen" about Elizabeth Woodville, his other grandmother, and didn't care for it. Maybe I was just not in the mood as I also like her as well.

    As for TOBG movie, I liked the British production with Jodhi May.

    Re: The Tudors

    The Wives of Henry VIII, by Antonia Fraser is one of my favorite books. I much prefer her writing to Philippa Gregory, and her historical accuracy is impeccable!

    I am delighted to report that on Wednesday, January 19th at 10 p.m. EST, BBC America will begin a recast of The Tudors. We receive this on Direct TV channel 264.

    It was a fabulous production, and I wish there could be more tv of that quality. Of course we have The Bourgias coming fairly soon, but I may skip that one as that family was a little too gruesome for my taste.

    I'm so glad that CBC had it on so I could watch it. It was great and I wish it would carried on through Mary and Elizabeth as well. Not sure how I feel about the Bourgias but I sure I would forever be comparing it to the Tudors.
