The Tudors - a new take on them!,
This review is from: The Tudors: Complete Season 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
I bought The Tudors series 1 of Amazon for my mum for christmas and we have watched them together over the last few weeks.
Having not learnt about The Tudors since I was eight years old I don't really remember much about them apart from the stereotypical fat man with the ginger hair. However watching this has made me learn so much more about the young Henry, the sportsman, the King who knew he had the power to do anything.
My mums a big fan of history and at times she's watched a scene and said "I dont remember learning about that!" So, yes there is some fiction in this series but a bit of fantasy didn't harm anyone - right?
There is a very good cast in the series and some brilliant acting from them. I know some reviews are saying even in series 2 he has not fattend up but i'm sure thats all to come!!!!
If you want to learn about the Tudors without taking it too seriously, with a bit of sex, a look at some beautiful costumes and a fair bit of drama thrown in then I would definetly recommend you buy this.
This series kept a load of seventeen and eighteen year olds in of an evening - and not just because of Jonathon Rhys Meyers - now I think that's pretty good, therefore this gets a whole 5 stars. :)
