The Tudors: Season 2 (Disc 1 of 4) back to product details

A Little Less Trashy, But Suspension of the Critic Reflex is No Less Key

The second season of The Tudors feels slightly less glaringly soap-operatic than the original, and actually does a pretty good job telling the tale of the dominion and subsequent fall of one of history's most pivotal women, Anne Boleyn (though the nascent rise of Jane Seymour towards the end of the season does feel a bit rushed). Nevertheless, this season requires no less suppression of one's sense of historical accuracy and tendency to critique dialogue and acting than did the first, especially in watching Jonathan Rhys Myers' pouting, wooden portrayal of King Henry VIII. If you can do that, season two of this Showtime series offers no fewer fun, trashy, and melodramatic hours of entertainment than the previous one.
