The Tudors, showtimes original series (2007-2010), is now available on Amazon Prime for free and on Netflix. If you have not seen this series, we highly recommended it for it’s beautiful period customs, sets, music and acting. The only downside to this show (for some) are the mature scenes which could have been left out. These are quite common in the first episodes, but get less as the series progresses. It is still a great story on the Tudor Dynasty and mixes historical fact with a bit of fiction.
The Tudors present the rarely dramatized, tumultuous early years of King Henry VIII’s nearly 40-year, omnipotent reign (1509-1547) of England. In addition to his famous female consorts, a 20+ year marriage to Katherine of Aragon and the infamous dalliance with Anne Boleyn, the series delves into Henry’s most notable political relationship and the deconstruction of the Roman Catholic Church in England.
Four seasons are available with about 10-12 shows per season. Your image and understanding of King Henry will be forever changed after watching this series!
