One of my new favorites

Since becoming a Netflix subscriber, I've had the opportunity to get caught up on several shows. I am currently watching the Showtime original series The Tudors. In short, two big thumbs up from me so far.

I have always been a huge fan of historical dramas. HBO had several of these - Rome, Deadwood and even a mini-series event, John Adams. All were awesome in my opinion. But I have to say that The Tudors may be my favorite. Great cast, great writing, great direction, great wardrobe, great score, great stories - just overall greatness, OK?

Highly recommended.

Awesome series! And from everything I've read about the period, it's pretty accurate.

Why do we have to wait until 2009 for the show to continue :(

Like the poster, I too am a historical drama lover (fanatic actually). I am a Tudor’s junkie, I love the accuracy, the costumes are unbelievable, the sets are beyond my expectation, never fails to leave me in awe. This is my favorite Showtime series ever (I watch most of them and Dexter rocks also).
JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS...there could be no other actor for the part. He lives the part, the off scenes interviews depicts that. NATALIE DORMER is so perfect it's hard to imagine any other playing the part.
I can't wait to see who they will cast for Jane Seymour and Anne of Cleves in season 3. My only complaint about this series is: why I must wait so long to have "my fix" of season 3. With attention to detail and accuracy, I expect it would take an inconceivable amount of time and effort to put forth such an amazing series. I am so hooked on The Tudors; I pray it comes back for many seasons to come.
Thank you Showtime!
