Late to the Tudor party
I was hoping to have something scintilating to post today but instead I got caught up last night in a television marathon of The Tudors.
Of course I've heard of this series and I even caught a bit of it once, but I never bothered to find out exactly when it was on. But I was channel surfing and saw they had three episodes back to back to back last night. I'm not sure where they started - whether it was at the beginning or not but it was early enough on to make sense of it. It wasn't until the third episode that he met the Bolyen sisters.
They showed it 'uncut' and that was rather eye opening. Quite the randy bunch they were!
Now that I've seen it and know when it's on, I think I might keep watching - at least for a while anyway. I love period dramas - no surprise there *g*. I'm sure I'm not the only romace reader to love this genre of movies, but I'm not so sure when the hero - isn't! I loved history in school and English history in particular, so I know Henry VIII - while not a bad king, was NOT a nice person. Jonathan Rhys Meyers sure does make a compelling Henry though doesn't he?
What I did get a kick out of while watching last night though, was the birth of Henry’s son whom he declared Henry Fitzmorris. Of course I thought immediately of Blood Ties, one of my favourite shows (before the #
%#$*^% cancelled it) the Vampire hero Henry Fitzmorris, the bastard son of Henry VIII.
Very Interesting I thought!!!
