Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Tudors is one of the most compulsively watchable TV series in recent memory. It's (mostly) true to history and shows the undeniable power, corruption, enormous appetites, and drive of King Henry VIII. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is a vengeful, lustful king, who does nothing without carefully considering the consequences--unless, of course, it involves women, wives, and mistresses. In season three of The Tudors, Henry has dispatched with bothersome second wife Anne Boleyn and has his eye set on the coolly lovely Lady Jane Seymour (Annabelle Wallis), who dies suddenly after the marriage. Henry then, mired in a giant battle with Rome and the Pope (Peter O'Toole, splendid as always), agrees to wed Anne of Cleves, in an attempt to gain Cleves as an ally in his battle against the Catholic Church. However, Henry does not find this Anne attractive (a little hard to buy, since she is played by the lovely and winsome singer Joss Stone). Much of this season weaves in the story of Henry's trying to figure out a way out of this politically important wedding and finding a new love interest. This season also finds rebellion in the north, as devout Catholics react to the king's demolition of their churches and statues. Henry, never one to take much personal responsibility, decides the rebellions are the fault of his loyal henchman, Thomas Cromwell (the coolly calculating James Frain), so fissures begin to appear within the king's inner circle as well. Into this cauldron of chaos wanders the lovely young wench Catherine Howard (Tamzin Merchant). Her beauty is bewitching, and what the king wants, the king gets. Rhys Meyers is riveting as King Henry, conveying entitlement, rage, calculation, regal vision, and venal lust in equal measure. He's still a handsome, trim specimen of a man, in a departure from history--and though the camera dutifully records his famous festering leg wound, its fetid stench is never mentioned, nor does it seem to inhibit young lovelies like Miss Howard. Meanwhile, Henry's daughter from his first marriage, Mary (Sarah Bolger), is already setting up future conflict in her devotion to Catholicism and her insistence on her birthright. For any fans of history, deep drama, and a powerful protagonist one can admire if not like, The Tudors is a must-watch, and season three one of the best of the lot. --A.T. Hurley

From the Studio

Twenty seven years into his reign, Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is at the height of his powers. Not long after the execution of Anne Boleyn he takes a third wife - Jane Seymour (Annabelle Wallis), a woman with inner beauty and noble character whom he clearly loves and who has a calming effect on the King. But while her influence is welcomed by her new husband, her Catholic background causes disquiet and discomfort for Thomas Cromwell (James Frain), Henry’s most senior courtier and the ruthless driving force behind the English Reformation. Cromwell has one aim: to confiscate the moral authority and worldly goods of the Catholic Church.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tudor season 3 uncut edition. Jan. 5 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Tudor season 3 is excellent as usual.Acting/drama continues with same high quality as we have come to expect. However this DVD version appears to be missing the subtitles, which were helpful in the previous 2 seasons. Have no idea why they are missing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tudors - 3rd season - the saga continues Feb. 7 2010
Format:DVD
Whew, what an intense saga, ever since we watched Season 1 we have been hooked. The machinations of King Henry's court are unreal. It is so convenient to say someone is committing treason then have them eliminated, oh if things were only so easy.

From the moment it starts you are gripped again with the ways of the world in those times, weddings weren't for love they were to seal a deal or an alliance, love played in sometimes if you were lucky.

The church is just as bad as the king, maneuvering as needed to accomplish their agenda and amass more power.

The cinematography in this series is fabulous, the scenes, the castles, the clothing. the jewelry, the pomp and ceremony, the treachery and violence, gives one an insight into the times that brings books we read to life.

Only complaint was the cost of this season were high when we bought for Christmas, probably cheaper now. This season will not disappoint.

Kudos to the producers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Successful Third Season! Jan. 2 2010
By Jason
Format:Blu-ray
Though Season 3 of The Tudors only consisted of eight episodes, the cast and story held strong. Jonathan Rhys Meyers just gets better and better! Though, I must say, I do miss the Boleyns this time around, as they were such an important part of the story throughout the first two seasons. My only criticism is the third season felt a bit rushed...but it definitely left me excited for the final season!

Regarding the Blu-Ray element of this product, the picture quality is beautiful and the menu screens are quite lovely.

Format:Blu-ray
This Tudor series is of incredible quality - well worth the $s. I saw an installment on Canadian broadcast TV while circling Lake Superior in a Canadian built Road Trek RV - (a Mercedes Sprinter), in October. I was very impressed both with the marvelous production quality, and the acting and writing in this series. I was also struck by the freedom you Canadians have in what you are permitted to broadcast. If the episode had aired on broadcast as opposed to cable TV in the US, our Public Broadcasting System would have been fined $500M for indecent exposure for a brief view of a breast. We residents of the lower 48, have a terrible phobia about the cataclysmic things that might happen if a breast is exposed; never mind that all mammals - male and female alike have some mammary tissue. Phooey on our superstitious puritan USA ancestors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Amazing Dec 29 2009
Format:DVD
This third installment of this amazing franchise is sure to hit every Henry VIII lover in the world. Showtime has done a phenominal job keeping viewers intrigued with the drama that surrounded this era in history. Although slightly over exagerated in certain historical references, this epic journey is well worth taking!
