Had a couple people ask me what The Tudors was:
This superb and visually lush Showtime series provides a look at the world of the Tudors in the days when King Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) was a handsome, charming, athletic 25-year-old. Inheriting absolute power at a young age, the king indulges his voracious taste for ladies-in-waiting, hangs out with his entourage of young nobles and makes momentous political decisions. The stellar cast includes Jeremy Northam and Sam Neill.
That was the summary for season one. Here's the summary for season two:
Excellent show! The costumes, sets, and locations are a feast for the eyes! The political maneuvering and consequences are entertaining and complex--doesn't matter a whit that you know the eventual outcomes. The acting has been superb across the board! Showtime has really been stepping up and changing its old image. (I am a complete Dexter fan, too!)
A grey day--minus 2 degrees. Might get above zero today. :)
