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.
