Product Description

From the Studio

For four seasons, The Tudors went beyond the history books to reveal the intimate story of the most powerful man in history, Henry Vlll.  Henry began his reign as an idealistic king, but ultimately became a ruthless monarch who stopped at nothing to have everything: the crown, sex, a heir and absolute power.

This show is addictive. Although there are some historical innacuracies and some fictional characters throughout the series, it does a wonderful job at portraying both the tyranical mind of Henry the eighth, and what life was like at the English court in the 16th century. The show does not claim to be completely historically correct, but as a history buff, it is one of the closest T.V. or movie depictions of The Tudor dynasty. The show is vivid and colorful with characters that come to life through the dialogue of the time period and the beautiful and elaborate costumes. I find it extremely interesting how difficult life as a woman at court during that time would have been. The show is not full of surprises or overflowing with action, but the story is captivating and will still keep you on the edge of your seat. I highly recommend it. Thanks again Amazon for your quality product and speedy delivery. As always, I was extremely impressed.

I buy lots of movies to watch when I have time and thus I have shelves of unwatched movies - but once I started watching this box set of 13 CD's - I HAD TO make time every night to watch a few episodes. I anticipated each scene as each was better than the one before. I appreciated how Jonathan oozed the character of Henry into the 21st century so to make his life better understood and his rationale perfectly logical considering the stress of his position and tension of the times.

I enjoyed breaking from the magic to see the actors interviewed a certain intervals in their real persona vs. the roles they played as it proved how great they played their roles. I have been a fan of Jonathan for a number of years but will be watching for whatever else he does as this was so enjoyable.

p.s. While I know 'sex sell's - I thought there were just too many raunchy sex scenes and were a little too much as it would be too embarrassing for me to watch this series in the company of other family members.

This series is a must for drama history lovers. I saw the TV version and it does not compare with this uncut and uncensored version. Many scenes were new to me, and I couldn't stop watching! I also enjoyed the interview with Michael Hirst and the actors.
The Tudors Royal Collection is well worth the price and I would recommend it to anyone. "rat lover"

A series full of lots of drama and excitement about the life of King Henry VIII. I am always surprised (as with the series Rome) that this kind of budget could be allowed for a tv series. It was filmed to attract even the youngest of audiences and they did a great job capturing a bit of history and adding the excitement and drama that anyone would appreciate and enjoy. I strongly recommend this series to anyone who is unsure of whether it is worth the money. I have watched it 3 times now and find it was well worth the money.

Let's get straight to the point : there are many inacurracies and there is gratuitous sex. Lots of it.

However, this is as entertaining as can be. I find it a tough call between Rome and this one, and wouldn't risk declaring one as better than the other. You'll be riveted to your screen. You'll always want to see the next part. The only downside? Too short. This is just like a book which you don't want to end, just because you have so much fun reading it.

Seriously, amazing work that even got me to do some research on that time, which I think hugely compensates the few names and events that have been changed for the story's sake.

Definitely worth it.

On the Amazon part : got it 2 days earlier than the planned delivery date, which is always extremely nice, but I came to expect that of Amazon. Very smooth transaction. This is just one more great transaction with Amazon, and I've never been disappointed so far.

The Tudors: The Royal Collection series is amazing.The show itself is phenomenal and one of my favorites. I know so many people who love this series as well, who normally are not into this genre of show. The best part is the set up of how the DVDs are inside is set is perfect. Plus it is not bulky and take up the space or two maybe 3 DVDs put together. Plus buying this through Amazon was the best experience ever. It was my first ever purchase on Amazon.ca, (also my first online purchase ever), and honestly I am going to try to shop exclusively with them for all my online needs. The packaging this came in was super protective and secured the delicate item inside from bumping/sliding around inside. The shipping time was fantastic and much faster then I expected. My over all love for this series motivated me to make this purchase. The ease of buying this from Amazon has made me an online shopper!!! Overall I strongly suggest to buy this DVD set!!!

One of the best series I've ever viewed. The only change I would have made would have been to switch actors between Henry and Brandon. Henry Cavill would have made a much better Henry than Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Otherwise, it was excellent. I particularly liked Anne Boleyn - Natalie Dormer played her so well.
