I've always been intrigued by this point in history and love reading about it. I've heard about this show for quite a while and I loved the Other Boleyn Girl. So I bought the first two seasons on DVD and I'm halfway through Season 2. I got to say I'm really enjoying it. I do realize not all of it is very historly accurate but I do some googling to find out how much is or to get some back story about a character. I'm watching right now 100 Days of Anne Boleyn and am watching Mary Queen of Scots next.
I wanted to see if anyone wanted to discuss their thoughts on the show or even other movies or books about The Tudors. And really how great JRM is at playing Henry VIII. He sure is good looking!

So I googled it to see how much was true and it seems pretty accurate, although I'm sure they go overboard on some stuff.
I think JRM does a great job as Henry and I don't remember him being that hot in Bend it like Beckham!! LOL
I am addicted to this show.
I thought that this season wouldn't be the same without Ann Boelyn. I loved her, however, It's still good. I'm excited for Joss Stone to come in as his 4th wife.

Calia- I liked Elizabeth and the Golden Age. She was truly a remarkable woman and it's so intriguing to watch her transformation. Her life must have been so exhausting- constantly worrying about some dude trying to dethrown her.

It is very similar to Ann Boleyn's biography (I have a read a few but Alison Weir's is my favorite author, her Elizabeth I biography is also great) - also a good read is Mary Queen of Scots (Henry VIII's first daughter by Queen Katherine - season 1) by Antonia Frasier. Because the books are of course non-fiction they're kind of hard to get through, but they really are great... and it helps to watch to the show to actually know what's going on and who is who!!!
And it totally helps that JRM is so darn HOT!
