So, I spent yesterday holed up on the couch with the cable OnDemand watching Showtime's new series, The Tudors. All I can say is...wow. There's a lot of buzz on this series that will premiere on April 1st. Here's a preview of what you have to look forward to...
Yummy little Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who most people know from Bend it Like Beckham or TV's Elvis, for which he earned a Golden Globe, but I've been a fan of since Velvet Goldmine.
The buzz about this series is it features the young, virile, studly Henry VIII and not the fat, beaded guy who ate whole turkey legs that we see in so many portraits of the time. The first two episodes really showcase Henry's tenacity to be remembered after he's gone...to go down in history as someone famous who left a mark on humanity. He also had a voracious appetite for the ladies.
Check out the Showtime website for details, history, bios and everything about the show. It's really quality television. They've really done a great job promoting it.
What other TV shows do you plan to check out in the spring/summer as replacements are coming on? I admit, I'm watching the same favorites: America's Next Top Model, Everybody Hates Chris, Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty and a new favorite with one of my favorite people, Eddie Izzard, The Riches.
Let us hear what you're watching!
