  • Don't cross the king!

    Intrigue, treachery, infidelity, beheadings! It's all here in another fun filled episode of The Tudors.

    Actually, it's taken a little bit for this show to grow on me. But it has me hooked. In this episode, King Henry the VIII continues to expect everyone to kowtow to him. This includes Anne Boleyn (in a surreptitious way), his many lovers, all his subjects...he just wants all the power.

    It's on this last point that Thomas More will perish. All the kings subject are to swear an oath that the church is led only by the King and not by the Holy Catholic Church. Needless to say, he pays for it with his head, though the King has a conscience. He will feel guilty for this for some time.

    Stay tuned...
