Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]I love costume dramas, I love history, I love literature, good writing and acting, but if you love any of these - avoid this series. I wanted to enjoy it, and can overlook a lot if the writing or the performances are good, but this is just dreadful on all fronts. Watch "Cranford" instead which is a delight. The writing/script for the Tudors is puerile. Think of how an adolescent boy's fantasy of being Henry VIII might be like and this is it. Women drop their drawers and strip off every five minutes to get a jolly good rodgering by Henry. Between these episodes you get a bit of history over simplified and over explained for the uneducated morons the writer assumes us to be. The only enjoyment is to be astounded at the ludicrous dialogue and the hammy cardboard performances. What utter utter rubbish, what a disappointment. I'm just surprised they didn't cast Posh as Anne Boleyn!

A Good YarnBy a customer from St Andrews, Scotland , 17 Feb 2009This reminds me of Braveheart. Lots of myth and legend, some questionable historical fact mixed in with some decent historical data less widely known. If this was an Oscar or BAFTA nominee would not even get a look in, but for enjoyable watching just great fun. Looking forward to future episodes.

The TudorsBy a customer from Mauchline , 06 Jan 2009Sex, violence, politics. Not the BBC version? Not strictly ballroom? Who cares? Fantastic entertainment.
entertaining historyBy a customer from bathgate , 23 Dec 2008This is the best way to learn about Henry VIII and his passion for England, women and his fall out with the catholic church which changed Britain for ever.
