    Re: The Tudors

    If anyone has DirectTV, they're going to run all four seasons of The Tudors on Channel 101, starting sometime in January.

    And I'll definitely be watching The Borgias, if only for Jeremy Irons. Nobody does diabolical better....

    I think this coincides with the BBC America recast. Personally, I can't wait to watch the entire series again. I miss it. I am a total Tudors ho. I even bought some of the jewelry from the series from Sorelli.

    Re: The Tudors

    Well, after all this time, I finally got around to watching The Tudors for the first time last week and once I watched episode one, I was completely hooked so I proceeded to watch the entire four seasons last week.

    Amazing show, amazing production and and amazing cast. Jonathan Rhys Meyers did such an excellent job portraying the nuances of Henry VIII and while we know later on in life, Henry was a morbidly obese, sweaty, paranoid mess of a man, I was perfectly fine with seeing a less portly version of him portrayed. Jonathan Rhys Meyers breathed life into that character.

    All the actresses playing his queens were great too.

    The rest of the cast were on-point as well. I mean, come on...Sam Neill as Cardinal Wolsey, Jeremy Northam as Sir Thomas Moore, to say nothing of Peter O'Toole as the pope? Doesn't get any better than that.

    I've always been fascinated with this particular period in British history every since it was a part of social studies / history curriculum way back in junior high school.

    I hate that it's over. It was all so epic, I need to experience it once more by watching it all over again.

    bee stung lips, if you want to see 2 other INCREDIBLY FABULOUS similar series of the same period in British history, check out these 2:

    The 1970 PBS series "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" which starred Keith Michell as Henry. (And he REALLY looks like King Henry!)

    The 1971 PBS series "Elizabeth R" starring Glenda Jackson as Queen Elizabeth. (Best Queen Elizabeth portrayal EVER!!!)

    You can probably get them both from your local library.

    Thanks for the info.

    Last week after i finished watching the series I went hunting around on Youtube for documentaries etc on the subject and actually spotted "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" on YouTube. I added it to my "Watch List" and plan to watch it sometime this week.

    Will check out the other one you mentioned as well. Its all so fascinating.
