I too have seen the first two episodes on Showtime on demand (or whatever it's called) and wow. That guy really got around (I suppose thats why all his children showed symptoms characteristic of congenital syphilis)!!! But I'm pretty excited to watch the rest of the season partly because of Henry Cavill who plays Charles Brandon (and was also in the count of monte cristo) but really just the the way the whole thing is layed out; they make it so interesting, I suppose more interesting then it actually would have been (but whatever it's still good)!!

You can watch the first 2 episodes on the Showtime website. Sadly I don't get Showtime at my house
I'm guessing it will be out on DVD at some point.

They have showed ads for the series on the NYC subway and I love getting my eye candy every morning! But really, the series looks so interesting and I wish I had Showtime. I wonder if it'll be released on DVD? It'll be out rather quickly, I'd assume, considering the broadcast-to-dvd turnaround times these days.

Look for the Elizabeth I DVDs. The same producers and network did The Tudors. If they are already released, that should give you an idea of how long it takes, if they (the DVDs) are not, then be prepared for a wait.

Oooo, I can watch it on their website? Sweet! I don't have Showtime and couldn't find any friends who did.

On a different note, I found this review of The Tudors from Slate Magazine

If anyone gets The History Channel International, they are showing a four-part series called "Worst Jobs in History". Part 3 is "The Tudors", covering life in Tudor England. It should repeat again this morning.

As much as I whine about my 'modern' life, I would really be unhappy as a scullery maid back then!!

I'll be very honest about this mini-series: It's a piece of crap.

Why the producers even bothered with the script is beyond me.

So, is Showtime just casting Henry VIII as their latest historical stud?

Actually, dear members, according to the records, Henry was actually a bit of a puritan-if that is the right word. Of course in his day, he did come to the throne just before he was eighteen, he was a pretty enough fellow. something like six ' two" I think. Just an inch short of Prince William. Of course as he got older it all caught up with him. He, for dynastic reasons, should have seperated from poor Catherine-yes it was unfair!!!- years before he did and if Anne would not warm his bed early enough he should have-for purely dynastic reasons- gotten in with somebody else-on the right side of the blanket as it were. But then in movie land we are interested in looking at splendid horney drop dead gorgeous male specimens-not to mention luscious and buxom honeys as unclad as possible in the most compormising positions (preferraly with each other) they are entertainment and historic facts are a side show. Cheers.

I don't think Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is hot at all.

Plus he's too short to be Henry VIII. Back then, the average height would be around 5'4" and Henry was 6'2", so he should be one of the tallest, if not the tallest in his court.

Oh and Anne Boleyn has blue eyes... she was famous for her dark eyes that Elizabeth I inherited. So yeah...

I thought the same when I saw/hear about it.

Than who would better to play the film characters than the present cast?

Btw. in the other film about Boleyn sisters http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ht=boleyn+girl Henry is playing by Eric Bana.

I think the girl playing Anne Boleyn is cute/mysterious-looking enough. I think brown contacts would've made it better.

As for Henry, I do not know of any tall, hunky, redheaded actor to play Henry.

My husband and I have been watching the show and I like it as a drama but as far as history goes the show takes a huge liberty by making Margaret (the Kings sister) marry the King of Portugal. I read on Wikipedia that the show combined Henry VIII's two sisters (Mary and Margaret) to make a more interesting character. I wish the show would have focused on one of the sisters instead of making a new 'faux' Margaret.

Maybe the producers were too cheap to hire another actress to play Mary.

I think it was not a good idea to merge the two sisters into one character. If you are pitching it as history, at least try to be acurate
