Good stuff

Last week my eyes were glued to the screen watching The Tudors - you know how I love a good historical story, even if the facts have been changed to make a better adaptation to television.
At first I thought this was a mini-series, as there have been a few about Kings and Queens in the past, but at that point I had watched 5 episodes and King Henry VIII still hadn't divorced his FIRST wife. lol Then I realized it was a series, with seasons; season two is coming up but Henry has not been able to marry Anne Boleyn yet.

Portuguese television was kind to present us with all eleven episodes in four days, sometimes up to the three hours watching this...I was beginning to talk like anyone in the Court, your Grace, my Lady, my Lord ;)

Even though the plot is a little slow to develop, I enjoyed it very much. If I had to choose a word to describe the show, it would be: sexy haha.

Recently,when I was in UK,visiting cambrigde,our guide repeated in verbatim, the entire content of one of the letters Henry VIII wrote while courting one of his wives.Oh--it was so so so passionate.No wonder he managed to seduce so many!

Chrispito: Don't despair, I'm sure it'll come to a TV your way soon, or you can always download this off the internet, if you have the patience. :)

Day: I agree ;)

Holychaos: It's a great way to lose yourself in something far, far away.

Niall: lol I don't have the vocabulary to respond to that, I'm afraid.

PS: hehe that's true. He was very devoted apparently. :)
