I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

TV Show Review: Tudors Season 2


The Tudors
Showtime
Season 2
2008
Rated: Mature Audiences

Tudors season 2 covers the period from King Henry seeking an annulment of his marriage to Queen Katherine of Aragon, all of his marriage to Anne Boleyn, and ends with her execution.

I have to say, this season was really Natalie Dormer’s spotlight. I have seen many people portray Anne Boleyn, and she is the one that I will always remember as this iconic queen. She is seductive, charming, determined, angry, pleading, and by the end someone who you can genuinely feel bad for. The final episode of this season was PHENOMONAL! The scenes leading up to her execution were so poignant and certainly made me cry. Another actress that I was pleasantly impressed with was Sarah Bolger who plays Princess/Lady Mary. I thought that she had a perfect amount of anger and determination for the character. This season also highlights the downfall of Thomas More due to the Reformation. Those are some amazing scenes as well.

Again, the costumes and setting were superb!

Onward to Season 3!

  3. Great review! I agree, Natalie Dormer became Anne Boleyn and she is my Anne now. I can't imagine anyone else in the role anymore.

  4. Great review Heather! Season 2 was my favorite of all and I think the most well done. Every actor and actress just stepped up to the plate and beyond to acheive this. Natalie is Anne and I will forever think of her as so. I cried my eyes out at the end!
