  • Henry has a hard time

    8.5
    It's time for Henry to find a new wife and he cannot waste any time. So he confides in Wosley to find the best one. But too bad Wosley has his own interests because he sets him up with a woman who he cannot find any pleasure at all.



    On the other hand, Anne has a hard time too since she is afraid and with a good reason, that she might be executed if she doesn't please the King.



    I think Wosley is slowly losing the King's favor. Poor Princess Mary. Here is when she realized she might not get married, she was getting old and still couldn't find a husband.



    Next week, season finale.moreless
  • A good show, with ups and downs just like history. And finally some loooove again!

    8.0
    I am the first to admit that the biggest reason I began to watch this show was to witness historical love. What is better than love and intrigues set in other parts of history.

    That and the history lessons, close... But love comes first. :)



    It is a difficult show to understand, the politics is difficult to wrap ones head around and there are many countries and names to remeber. But somehow one manages to understand fairly well what is happening.



    But I do admit the first and especially the beginning of the second season was my favourite. Natalie Dormer/Anne Boleyn is not to be underestimated! Ah such love! And that was also part of the history! I truly did love it.



    Since the years seldome are mentioned (if at all) everything seems to happen in a month and some things are just hurried over (For instance Jane Seymore) but to be fair to history, Anne was more of an influence and was around longer. But still, time reference would be nice.



    But now, ahhh, here comes Anne of Cleves! The one I, personally, know the least about, when it comes to Henrys wives.

    Now we're getting to the end of Henrys reign, or atleast very much closer. But I still look greatly forward to the rest of the show. We might know the ending but the picture that the Tudors paints is much more beautiful and interesting than the one drawn in the history books.moreless
  • Protestant Anne of Cleves

    Protestant Anne of Cleves was a perfect episode of The Tudors because it had a lot of character and plot development. I must say that I don't think this actress was worse looking than she who was Anne Boleyn. She has a different facial structure but still pretty and fair. It was interesting to see The King react the way he did. The Emperor makes a statement by having supply ships go through the English Channel. Cromwell is definitely starting to lose favor and he knows it. I thought it interesting how he started all the clapping when Anne of Cleves arrived at Court. This story had many great aspects. Anne had some good points about King Henry such as the sore on his leg oozing puss and blood with a foul smell. It was funny that he was so against her when he himself was not perfect. I enjoyed seeing how different life was in these times and what people had to endure and go through. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!moreless
  • Good episode.

    8.0
    For all the hate I have spoken about Season 3 of The Tudors they go and give a mind blowing episode like this. Strong acting by Jonathan Rhys Meyers really drove this hour of television that ended up being one of the best eps of the season. Seeing King Henry VIII completely disrespect Anne of Cleves was excellent, even if Joss Stone is not horrible looking in real life. Despite knowing what happens I cannot wait to see the show's take on things next week in the epic finale.



    More importantly the show did not have too many of the hard to follow side storylines that often take up way too much time. If they insist on focusing on people other than King Henry then they should cast actors who have unique appearances and do not look exactly the same as each other.moreless
