Woman With a Red Dress on

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.

Oh my gosh, I LOVE The Tudors! How have you managed to get hold of season 3??? Netflix tells us it will be a long wait for the first two disks of that season, and we're not willing to watch them out of order. At first, I felt as though the actor playing Henry was a bit of a weak link, but he has rubbed off on me over time. (I like his friend better.) I have an old friend who lives in Ireland now, and I can't remember exactly where she was traveling at the time, but she saw them filming some of it. What a lovely way to enjoy the afternoon. Glad your back is better now. :)

Is it not the best! I've been waiting to find someone else who's watched it. I hope we can get together and talk about it some time. I guess I just got lucky with Netflix because it just got skipped over once. I've got one more disc from season 3 then it's over until season 4 comes out. The afternoons will be so empty.:(
