I started watching the show after receiving free movie passes to see Elizabeth: The Golden Years with Kate Blanchett. I loved that movie, researched Queen Elizabeth, and found information on the whole Tudors family. Then realized that The Tudors was on Showtime.
Thanks to Comcast's On-Demand service, I was able to watch the episodes of the first season that I missed while waiting on the 2nd season to start.
I loved the 2nd season even more! And can't wait to see how many seasons they will get out of the information on the real-life Tudors.
