continuing to watch The Tudors  
I know, but I've got the whole first set of DVDs out from the library.

There's a point, in one of the episodes, at which Henry says to Anne, "I love your neck."

In another episode, Henry reprimands Thomas More by saying, "You're not a saint."

...Yeah. Oh, the subtlety.

Also, I know I have seen Perdita Weeks (Mary Boleyn) in at least two other things, but I can't remember what they are. I only remember this because every time I see her, I have the same reaction: "Heavens, that person looks extraordinarily like Honeysuckle Weeks! ...Oh, right, she has a sister who's also an actress."

The trailers weren't that subtle either: "It's good to be King...." (Smile)

Yeah, my favorite thing about the Tudors (which I like for purely lolfaillol reasons) is that Henry is SUBTLE LIKE A BRICK. XD

It is remarkably like watching the adventures of a sixteenth-century frat boy. :)

Frat Boy not Rock Star?
Have to laugh. He was supposed to be a sixtheenth-century Rock Star according to back stage interviews and hype about the show. And they actually were counting on those who recalled Jonathan Rhys Meyers portrayal of the Young Elvis as a draw and comparing the performances.

Re: Frat Boy not Rock Star?
But real rock stars have...magnetism, and talent, and things like that. JRM's Henry just has money and petulance. Therefore, frat boy it is. :)
