The Tudors Obsession!!!

Back to another one of my random rambling and I'm going to ramble about a new obsession of mine...I know that the show's really old and that it ended some time ago but my need to watch it is new so I was sooo glad when I found it!!!

Here's a guess...Take a look at the picture below to figure out what I'm rambling about!!!

If you guess the Tudors then well done and if you couldn't figure it out, what are you still doing here??? I mean seriously, go and watch it now because how can you not know what show I'm talking about!!! It's clearly written on the poster!!!

What I love about this show is...everything...Okay, let me break it down slow and explain the reasons why I think you should and MUST watch this show...

a) The costumes are amazing!!!

b) The actors and actresses are so incredibly talented...
c) The love stories revolving in the entire 4 seasons
d) Henry Cavil

e) All the above!!!

Frankly I love Henry and Anne Boleyn together because I found the love story most compelling to watch as it blooms slowly yet full of passion well that is until she loses her life in such a tragic twist of fate..This entire show is based on Henry VIII and his six (I'm not kidding!!!) SIX wives so yeah,there's a lot of love and not much love parts in this show but that was the 15th century!!! Allow me to elaborate, King Henry is married to his older brother's (deceased) wife, Katherine of Aragon and after many years, they only had one daughter, Mary Tudor also known as 'Bloody Mary' for certain reasons although I don't blame her for what she did because of being ill treated all those years so Henry is tired of the Queen which results in him taking many mistresses to entertain him...Of course, there's always one who's different and it turns out to be Anne Boleyn who is requested by her own father to be the King's mistress...How sick can that be??? Her own father asking her to sleep with someone when she's not even married to him!!! Times sure has changed...What kind of father would do that??? Right, those were the times where you sleep around freely without any consequence and it was an honour to be known as the King's mistress...
I loved this part sooo much when they first meet!!!

Anne starts playing with Henry's love and pretty soon, she's got him hooked around her finger and demands that he marries her if he loves her and so, the fight begins between the Queen and the future Queen...To be honest, I don't blame Anne for barging in that marriage even though it is morally wrong but the King was already unhappy plus she was only doing what her father wanted which was to pull her family higher up the social ladder plus I think she was in love with him...I hated the part when she's condemned to death for something she didn't do just because she could provide him with a male heir (see how terrible life was because everyone was pushing for a male heir???) but she did provide him with the greatest monarchy after Henry which was Elizabeth but Henry was long gone by the time she came to rule England or else he would be eating his words!!! I almost cried when she died because it was just wrong!!!
Look how sweet they look together!!!

The show is also packed with some action with the war going on and there's a lot of ambitious people around who uses their influence with the King to step on other people and they end up losing their heads literally speaking...

Lady Mary is also such an amazing character in this show too!!! She's as strong headed as her mother plus she has such a strong belief even though she turned out to be named 'The worst monarchy in England's history' but I really loved her in this show.... Too bad she turned out terrible because I just can't imagine her turning all crazy in this show!!!
Isn't she pretty???

The character that I hated the most was...Katherine Howard actually...I mean she was just plain annoying and childish!!! Plus that marriage was a sham from the beginning because she was only 17 years old and he was 40++ years old!!! Urgh...I can't imagine how she could live like that just for all the money and title because I would have ran far away even if he offered me a million bucks!!! I was actually glad that she was killed because it was her fault that she decided to cheat on the King right under his nose plus she was not as she claimed she was so what do you expect when you mess around with the King??? Her speech was touching because she was in love with the man she had an affair with who was beheaded but she could have waited a few more years!!! I mean come on, he's pretty old and she's young so why couldn't she just wait for him to pass away then run away with the man she loves??? That way she gets the guy and the money!!! I guess I can't blame her though because she was basically a pawn being used so she never did get the upbringing that the other wives had...
Epic Speech!!!

Those were the times when killing a person was alright so thank heavens for the law!!! I can't imagine living in those times where you would see public execution as a norm and heads were spiked and placed on the gates of the Tower of London like decorations and honestly, they were wondering why the black plague took place??? I mean look around, you have dead heads as decorations, public executions where blood splatters everywhere, urine poured from the windows and no proper drainage system so yeah, BINGO!!!!

Anyway, that's about all I wanted to ramble about this show so if you love flying heads (Kidding!!!), chopping heads, love stories and Henry Cavil, you would watch this show because Henry Cavil looked so hot in those tight pants...Ah, at least there was one good thing about those times!!! Hehe!!!

Did I mention how hot Henry Cavil was???
