TV Show Review: Tudors Season 2

The Tudors
Season 2
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!

  1. I made it through Seasons 1 and 2 and I hope to get season3 via Netflix over the holiday. I love the actresses that the have chosen so far and your are right the costumes are beautiful!

  2. Season 2 was incredible and I cried too at the end!

  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!

  5. Cortney - The actresses have been chosen for their queenly roles fairly well.

    Kelsey - that was one of the best acted scenes of this show.

    Irena and Tudor Daughter - Anne = Natalie Dormer ;)
