GUTTED THAT I HAVE TO WAIT TILL 2008 FOR SEASON 2!,
This review is from: The Tudors: Complete Season 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
I won't go into specific plotlines since that could take all day. However, if you realize while watching it that they have taken a bit creative license with some of the facts, then you will enjoy it much better. The acting is SUPERB. I really wasn't sure about the casting of Rhys Meyers, a very average Irish actor I have only seen in "Bend it Like Beckham". But he quickly won me over. He truly commands the screen, is petulant when it calls for it and really makes you beleive he is Henry. The actress who plays Queen Katherine is also brilliant. The sets and costumes are lush and beautiful. You almost feel like you were transported back 500 years ago! The storyline moves along very quickly and at the end of the season, really left me wanting more - I was completely hooked and cannot wait till 08 to see season 2. There are however, factual errors in the script that I won't detail here - if you didn't notice them while watching, then I won't disappoint you by pointing them out now. If you enjoy period movies and television, then you will ADORE the Tudors.

I am not looking forward to the second part. the history of the plot is rubbish!! who ever wrote the series needs to go back to his history books. as for adoring the tuders. I think I will stick to my history books.

I agree with you. This is just a mini porno series. Very vulgar, bad performances and so boring. Why is the BBC showing it?
