DVD Review: THE TUDORS Season 2

The Tudors Season 2 DVD

As some of you may know I am a big fan of Showtime and their shows, and one of my favorites happens to be THE TUDORS. And so of course I was very excited when Season 2 of The Tudors was released on DVD and I got my hands on a copy.

When I first heard of The Tudors I didn’t think it would really be my cup of tea, so I didn’t watch Season one, but when it came out on DVD I decided to take a look. It only two 2 episodes to get me hooked. I then of course watched Season 2 and it just kept getting better.

And now with a chance to watch Season 2 all over again, it got me excited all over again and ready for Season 3 (which premieres on April 5).

Season 2 is all about Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn’s story. If you know a bit of the history of Henry VIII, then you already know how all of this ends, but for those that don’t, I won’t spoil it. All I will say is that Natalie Dormer is great as Anne. I don’t know how she does it, but I loved watching her. And of course The Tudors would be nothing without Jonathan Rhys Meyers who plays Henry brilliantly.

The great thing about The Tudors is that even though period shows might not be your thing, it has so much drama, cunning, and sexy scenes, that I think it can appeal to a really large audience.

If you haven’t caught up to Season 2 yet, now is the time.

In addition to getting all the episodes of Season 2, the DVD also has some extra features, including a featurette that looks at the descendants of Henry, and another featurette in which Natalie Dormer takes us to the Tower of London and relives the last hours in the life of Anne Boleyn. I found the latter one particularly interesting.

You can get Season 2 of The Tudors on Amazon.

And for some extra fun, Showtime has come up with a fun website, Who The Tudors Are You that tests what your life would have been like if you had lived during the tudors times. How did I do? Well, let’s just say I’m not very high on the ladder. But the question is, how did you do?

And finally, don’t miss Season 3 of The Tudors starting April 5 on Showtime.
