The First Season
The Tudors: The Complete First Season may cover the same subject matter as the 1970 BBC series The Six Wives of Henry VIII, but in every other respect it is a different idea of historical drama. Sexy and violent, The Tudors envisions Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) as a young man of both passion and ambition, driven by boundless sexual energy and the desire to establish a legacy early in his monarchy. When he isn't sleeping with any available beauty--heedless of whose daughter or wife a lover might be--he's getting fired up about going to war with France. He is amenable, however, to alternative ideas, including the counsel of his Lord Chancellor, Cardinal Wolsey (Sam Neill), who wants his king to sign a treaty of universal peace with all of Europe. Henry's fiery temperament endangers such a move, but Wolsey persists in hopes of gaining France's support for his own, possible ascendance to the papacy. His ambitions are not to be, however, and his fortunes go downhill as Henry's desire to wed Ann Boleyn (Natalie Dormer) puts Wolsey in the position of petitioning Rome for a hearing on the legitimacy of Henry's marriage to Queen Katherine.

Henry's shrewd alliance with the king of Spain is also testament to his desire to have more influence over European affairs. But his even greater desire for another woman proves an obstacle there, too. Over the course of the ten episodes on The Complete First Season, Henry's confidence grows as a monarch while his self-interest undercuts his better judgement about making a difference to Europe's progress. While the series makes the historical events rich and captivating, it also makes Henry's love life a voyeuristic delight, full of candlelit flesh and romps in the royal bed. Some of the most fascinating characters in the show are those who figure out the link between Henry's libido and his exercise of power--including Boleyn's own father (Nick Dunning), who encourages Ann to keep up the good work. Sheesh. --Tom Keogh

The Second Season

Power, sex, delusion and tragedy were hallmarks of The Tudors: The Complete First Season, and they are all the more so in The Complete Second Season. The story of Britain's King Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), The Tudors is a dynamic history of a kingdom whose role on the 16th century world stage seems largely defined by Henry's narcissistic whims. Season two is very much taken up with Henry's determination to break free of papal authority in Rome and establish himself as head of England's church--all because he seeks to divorce Queen Catherine (Maria Doyle Kennedy) and marry Anne Boleyn (Natalie Dormer). Meanwhile, poor Catherine is kept locked away from court, unable to see her daughter Mary (Sarah Bolger) but refusing to relinquish her throne despite such punishment. As for Anne, she enjoys Henry's passion and commitment, but only to a point. When Henry marries her (in a union not recognized by Rome nor many British subjects) and she does not produce a male heir, his fickle attentions begin to wander, and a grand power play by Anne's father, Thomas Boleyn (Nick Dunning) begins to unravel. In time, Henry's focus shifts to soon-to-be third wife Jane Seymour (Anita Briem), whom the king sees as a symbol of his own redemption after the complications of his love life to date. Toward the end of The Complete Second Season, all the hints that Henry's lack of scruples is leading to a full-scale psychological breakdown begin to show, manifest in his many cruelties and--at the last minute--a clear sign of his notorious gluttony to come. Other stories woven into the colorful, lustful, intrigue-driven season two concern the fate of Henry's one-time mentor Sir Thomas More (Jeremy Northam), who refuses to cooperate with Henry's attempted separation from the Catholic faith and pays dearly for it. The pope himself (Peter O'Toole) turns up in sometimes near-comical responses to the king's intransigence, and the untimely fate of many interesting characters during Henry's wrathful sweep of his court proves a shocking development mid-season. All the actors are first-rate, even down to the smallest roles, and the show's spare but compelling use of nudity and sex scenes makes The Tudors powerful adult entertainment. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Series November 9, 2010
Format:DVD
It's a TV series made for entertaining you for 46 minutes a week. Did it do that? It did for me. Was it completely accurate? No, but it was close and sparked an interest in history that made me read up on the era. Good acting, good stories, good entertainment.

Very well acted. Excellent costumes. Wonderful sets. Close enough to historical accuracy for me. I thoroughly enjoyed each of the shows and will undoubtedly watch all of them again in a year. This set was a great addition to my library.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Ultimate "Tudors" Package!!!" September 14, 2010
Format:DVD
After four wonderful seasons Showtime's "The Tudors" wrapped up production in early 2010. Now on November 23, 2010 we can enjoy one of the most visually perfect television productions of all-time in a complete series box set. This set will included all 38 episodes along with an array of bonus features that were never available on the individual season sets.

Most critics have stated what a wonderful series "The Tudors" was, with everything from the acting, to the excellent scripts, to the fabulous costumes being at the top of their game. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers did a remarkable job in the role of King Henry VIII bringing both a strength and crediblity in his performances as week after week we watched as Henry would do anything for his country while at the same time trying to bed every young woman he could.

"The Tudors" follwed King Henry's life as King of England where he married multiple times and had various lovers, had dastardly political doings that were not favored by many, and he single handedly brought down the Roman Catholic Church.

In this 15 disc set the extra bonuses will include the following:

1. Hirst's Castle
2. Reviving History
3. Royal Manners
4. Poetic Licence
5. Henry's Wives Club
6. History of the Tudor Rose
7. Medieval Arms
8. Tracking The Tudor Dynasty
9. Wheel of Misfortune
10. Deleted Scenes
11. Bloopers
12. Tudors 500th Anniversary:Hampton Court
13. Tudors 500th Anniversary:Tower of London
14. Tudors 500th Anniversary:British Library

3.0 out of 5 stars Series compelling, but discs a bit of a problem December 30, 2010
By Susan
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
I bought the series at the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. Jonathan Rhys Meyers was an amazing Henry VIIIth. He is so regal so effortlessly that he brings instant credibility to his role. I didn't mind the poetic license used in some parts of the series (even though I am an English history buff).

My rating of 3 stars is because of the difficulties encountered in Series 2 and 3 with the discs. There was some flaw in those two sets that prevented the DVD player from moving on to the last episode on the disc. The last episode couldn't even be accessed by choosing it from the episode menu. After some experimentation, I found that I could access the last episode on the discs by using the scene forward button and getting to it from the second last episode on the disc. For shame, techno geeks. Other than that, the packaging is pretty and ingenious.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST.SERIES.EVER November 30, 2010
Format:DVD
Started watching "The Tudors" through Netflix and finished all 4 seasons in a couple weeks. Without a doubt, the best series on television. I know, I know, "M*A*S*H*," "Seinfeld," "Friends," "The Sopranos," "ER." They were all great, but I LOVED this series and it will be the only television series I own on disc once it arrives - can't wait to watch it all over again. AMAZING acting, beautiful costumes, and wonderful sets all combine to (loosely) retell the story of the reign of Henry VIII. This series sparked a true interest in the Tudors and Plantangenets and I am reading anything I can get my hands on. This series is a must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buyer BEWARE!!! March 28, 2011
By Qwkslvr
Format:DVD
LOVED this whole series and could not wait to watch it again when this boxed set came out. However, the last disc of the final season with the final two episodes cannot be viewed as there is obviously a manufacturing defect. Amazon have replaced my set twice and all three sets received had this same problem. I even tried the last disc on another DVD player in my house and it still had the problem. Obviously, my DVD players are just fine as they played all the other discs in the boxed set with no problem. As of today's date, Amazon still have no resolution for this problem except to keep sending out new boxed sets! VERY disappointing, particularly given the significance of the last two episodes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Collection! August 18, 2011
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of this show and this collection does not disappoint! From the content to the packaging, everything is terrific. It contains every episode PLUS a number of DVD extras not available on the individual seasons. It's a great addition to our Royal DVD collection. I was concerned with how long it took to be delivered, but then read about the postal strike in Canada. That said, it did still arrive within the estimated timeframe. Very happy with this purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb television, but where are the blu-ray and CC? January 15, 2011
Format:DVD
This review is on the four individually marketed seasons, not the boxed set.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series and wished it had continued on through Edward's and Mary's reigns. (There are many films on Elizabeth's tenure as queen.) Excellent costuming, fine performances, and close enough to historical fact to make it a good teaching tool (although not for high school given the nudity and excessive, if not historically inaccurate, use of the "F" word, particularly in the early episodes). It was a cruel and despotic era, and the series well depicts it within the confines of what is, despite the series' length, a short period of time. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers was incredibly good. Hard to believe he was the same man who portrayed Elvis Presley.

Those who criticize the series for historical inaccuracies all have valid points. As a historian, I can tell you that the mounting of the cannon depicted during the siege of Boulogne was absurd. Some pieces recoiled; others didn't. They were all mounted on an uphill slope, which means that recoil from firing round one would have sent them careening back down the slope, requiring hours of struggle to remount them for - well, one more shot that would have repeated the process. The proper procedure would have been to construct an upward slope behind the piece so it rolled back into position after firing. I was also annoyed that, given that the aged Henry VIII's obese form is so familiar, the film makers did not gradually fatten Rhys-Meyers. The 1970 BBC series Six Wives of Henry VIII did an effective job of growing actor Keith Michell from a lean, mean lovin' machine to a candidate for a fat farm.

Wondering the same thing. Thinking of purchasing The Tudors for a holiday gift but hesitate if the discs are defective. Is this still a problem?

Favorite Wife?
Anne Boleyn, then Anne of Cleves.
I loved Natalie Dormer as Anne, but thought Genevieve Bujold was fantastic as Anne.
