I've been having some back trouble lately and I finally allowed myself the luxury of lying down in the afternoon about an hour before time to start dinner with a heating pad , a cup of tea, and Netflix . Through the magic of Netflix instant I discovered The Tudors. This series was on showtime starting in 2007, and continuing in 2010. Not having cable TV I had never heard of it. I do love a historical drama and I have watched many many but I have never seen such lavish sets and costuming. Oh the costumes! The jewels! The Castle! See the red dress in the picture? I literally gasped aloud when she came out in this dress. There was also a cream one dripping with pearls that she wore to her coronation (this is Ann Boleyn by the way) that was gasp worthy. I don't think I've ever enjoyed a series quite so much. At least seasons one and two; I'm not enjoying season three as much; too much politics and fighting, not enough dresses.
Oh yeah, there's a lot of sex and nudity too.
My back is all better, thanks.
