Sure, The Tudors may deviate from history from time to time but known other historical television program has been as powerful as this in quite some time. Despite knowing what grim end the men were set to face I was still on the edge of my seat as if the plot was unpredictable.
The Tudors also has an absolutely incredible cast with a plethora of well-skilled actors and actresses who allow the viewer to briefly forget what year it is and feel like they are watching these infamous events transpire before them.
Jonathan Rys Meyers and Natalie Dormer give absolutely phenomenal performances that are as good as they are real. When I think of King Henry I think of Meyers, so that is a big testament to his ability.
