Product Description

The incredible tale of the young, powerful, seductive King Henry VIII unfolds in THE TUDORS, the daring series focusing on the tumultuous early years of the ambitious King's nearly 40 year reign of England. Bold and passionate about his country and his women, Henry's obsession with ensuring his legacy led to beheadings of friend and foe, waging war and challenging the almighty Catholic Church of England, forever changing the soul of the British Empire. In the second season of THE TUDORS, the sexy TV sensation, Henry (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is finally free to marry Anne Boleyn (Natalie Dormer), however we soon find out why she is later called 'Anne of a Thousand Days' as the political and emotional turmoil of life at court find another victim. The series also delves into his political relationships, including those with the Sir Thomas More and Pope Paul III, played by Peter O'Toole, during the Catholic Church of England's break with Rome. The exhilarating story continues with 10 new epis

From Amazon.co.uk

It’s a very welcome return for The Tudors in this terrific second season of the show, which picks up once more on the earlier years in the reign of King Henry VIII. And once again, it pulls few punches, by turns violent, passionate and dramatic. It’s absolutely not family viewing, but it does grab you by the collar and simply not let up.

What’s more, The Tudors is once again powered by arguably a career-defining performance by Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. He’s quite superb as the young King, capturing the obsession of Henry VIII in his quest for a male heir to the throne. He’s matched by a strong supporting cast, too, particularly Natalie Dormer’s Anne Boleyn. And with lavish production values grounding the show, it’s a sumptuous, surprisingly edgy slice of historical drama.

That said, once again, the show takes some liberties with history, and inevitably attracts attention for doing so. But those liberties are taken for a reason. The drama is never less than compelling, and it’s worth cutting The Tudors some slack for the decisions it makes. After all, the end result is genuinely gripping and engaging television, and come the final credits on the ten episodes here, chances are you’ll be thirsting for more. For even though you may know how the story ultimately ends, The Tudors is ample proof that the journey there is really what matters. --Jon Foster

As a history student in her final year at university, I can well understand why those who have a passion for history, and its accurate portrayal, may have problems with the liberties taken here. However, it's important to remember that Henry VIII was not always fat and old, especially during this period! In fact, in some of the very final scenes of the series, we can see how he will probably progress into being this more typical version, and I for one cannot wait to see if they can pull this transition off. The important thing to remember is that this is a tv show; not even a documentary, and therefore has not got an obligation to be 100 per cent factual all of the time, but to be entertaining for the audience. And anything that makes people who normally wouldn't be interested in history want to know more after they've finished viewing, has to have my vote.

Do people really know the Tudors. Yes this portrayal has it's inaccuracy's, but so do many films. Furthermore, most Historians of the period do not know exactly what happened either. That's what so fantastic about History, you have the facts but they are also open to interpretation. And that is what this series is all about, an interpretation of the truth. Someone else in the future will come up with something completely different that will wow or appal people.
As for the sex within the series I think that is the main thing that is portrayed accurately. Henry VIII is famed for his love of women and the fact that he had countless mistresses. Come on... the man was married six times for crying out loud so of course there is going to be sex!
I think this series is great and I can't wait to own it myself.

I cried my eyes out in the last episode, this is the first time I have seen properly the emotion and agonising that Anne went through while waiting to be executed. Usually it is head cut off move on to next wife. All I can say is well done for the whole series.

However... Henry has to start getting old and fat eventually? It will be interesting to see where they go with the series next.

Season 2 of the excellent series continues with Henry putting all his eggs in the Anne Boleyn basket, moving away from Rome and sacking the monasteries despite the annoyance of the Pope and the Emperor. It is not without cost to the king as his friend and mentor Thomas More will not swear the oath to the king, citing his conscience but paying the ultimate price for refusing to do so. As his new queen fails to produce a male heir, a chance encounter with Sir John Seymour's daughter, Jane, turns his head once again. The second Mrs Tudor no longer has the eighth Henry keeping her bed warm at nights and her status and slight neck is under great threat....

Continuing with the same high production values of the first series, this is a joy to behold and slightly improved even. The colours on BD jump to life on screen, particularly the reds of the Pope and his cardinals' cloaks and the greens and yellows at the jousting events. Rhys Meyers delivers again as the troubled, obstinate and determined monarch. O'Toole goes some way to filling the gap left by Sam Neill's Cardinal Wolsey, playing the pope with a glint in his eye but not getting enough screen time sadly. Plenty of sex, intrigue and political machinations revolving around the large cast of minister/enforcer Cromwell, the Duke of Suffolk, Arch Bishop Cranmer and the odious Boleyns keep the plot bubbling along nicely as per the first series. Highlights of the series are the dramatic execution of Thomas More and finally Anne Boleyn and her head part company (sorry if this is a spoiler!) at the Tower. Great stuff, very enjoyable though probably not too historically accurate.

Go for the BluRay if you can...

I think a lot of people are missing the point when it comes to Micheal Hirst's take on Tudor England. Eyes have been rolling (as opposed to heads...), and it seems like everyone's set to condemn it purely because Jonathan Rhys Meyers didn't fatten up for the role, nor don a ginger beard and codpiece. Woe!

So there are some historical inaccuracies, and yes, there's a LOT of nudity - but no one's requesting the immediate burning of all the many biographies and history books concering the period, and asking the shelves to be replaced with DVDs of the sexed up version. This is a television programme! And I'm certain that this series has forced a fair few to get down to their library and look up what the tudors were really like.

Isn't anyone fed up of the cliche'd fat man with a fake orange beard, take on Henry VIII? This is a fresh new take on old school history for a new generation. Stunning sets, beautiful locations, a fairly 'educational' but entertaining script, great costumes and a young cast. Let's start seeing the tudors for what it is - enjoyable programming :)

It's easy to disregard 'The Tudors' as a banal take on a very well known and perhaps over-told story. But it should NOT be disregarded on that count. The story as told in this production has been consistently fascinating, engaging and eminently watchable. The cast have been brilliant thus far: the many different perspective shifts have left you one minute feeling sympathy for Anne, then dislike for her atempts at machination, then feeling sympathy for her again. The final episode, detailing Anne's final hours, was beautifully crafted and tragically heart breaking in places.

Yes, we all know the facts, but why not allow yourself a moment of escapism and let the richness of the storytelling and the absolutely faultless beauty of the costumes and locations transport you for a while?

Like another reviewer here, I too wholeheartedly hope we get another take on the Plantaganets: 'The Warrior Kings' is long forgotten and we must be ripe for another series on what has to be potentially the most bizarre royal family in British history!
