  • The Undoing of Cromwell

    10
    The Undoing of Cromwell was a perfect and very entertaining episode of The Tudors as King Henry annuls his marriage with Anne of Cleves and makes her his sister instead and is quite generous to her, Princess Mary falls for a Protestent The Duke of Bavaria, and Cromwell meets his fate for displeasing the King. I thought this episode had a great mix of drama and intrigue as well as character and plot development. It was funny how even the righteous Princess Mary fell pray to human emotions and developed feelings for a Man against her beliefs. The King is introduced to a distant relative of Norfolks, Katherine Howard, who charms him with her youth, beauty, and playfulness. I look forward to watching the next episode of The Tudors!!!!!!!moreless
  • Season 3 Finale.

    Fun fact: Lord Thomas Cromwell was actually privately executed, not publicly as seen in tonight's episode.



    The Tudors has altered history a few times, but they get a free pass because they are only doing it to create more compelling television. Seeing Cromwell get beheaded truly was an epic moment as it was something where you knew that it had to happen eventually but could not believe it when it did as James Frain has been such an integral part of this series. I must say that I really enjoyed this finale despite it not being as good as the first two.moreless
