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
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 FosterSee all Product description

I love this series with its lavish production values and superb acting. Rhys Meyers continues to give us a complex Henry - getting older almost visibly in this series, and starting to exhibit more of his famously capricious and terrifying temper.
While this does continue to take some artistic license with documented history (most obviously in the cases of Henry's sisters), there are moments where it is also subtly true to the sources: the scene, for example, where Anne wears yellow to celebrate the death of Catherine.
At the heart of this series is the fate of Thomas More, and the fall of Anne herself. Anne is treated throughout in a fairly hostile fashion but the final episode redeems her in an unexpected and poignant fashion.
So, yes, another brilliant drama that remains, despite some deviations, true in spirit to the times and the story.
