I'm DVR'ing it along with America's Next Top Model and Stylista

I remember right before Prince Charles' Investiture Ceremony as Prince of Wales, there was a similar type special.

No, I don't get PBS on Direct TV without subscribing to certain network channels that carry it. I only get fox and one other network, so it is doubtful.

Hope someones recaps the highlights for those who can't or don't get a chance to watch it.

Wow, I just can't believe that you do not get PBS Shocked It is such a part of Chicago television history. So much local programming is shown on PBS here too. I have PBS kids on most mornings during snack time. I personally love Clifford the Big Red Dog Laughing

I could get it if I paid extra for it by getting more network shows. I really don't care for most network sitcoms so it isn't worth it to me. I use to have it when we lived in Texas and when we had regular cable. I use to love the music shows and of course BBC.

I've been lucky because all the cable systems I've had include our local and public broadcast stations. I know some systems make you pay extra.

Remember Hans Matheson that played Thomas Cranmer? He is in Tess that I am currently watching on PBS Masterpiece Classic. He plays Alec D'Urberville the villian in piece . He will also be in the upcoming Sherlock holmes movie with RDJ.

I wonder who they got to replace him on the show? I know he announced a while back that he was leaving to take the role on Tess but I don't think anything's been said about a replacement.

Woo-hoo, Amazon finally shipped my Season 2 DVD!

Tess is only a total of four hours though. It is over this Sun. He is also in the upcoming movie Bathory, starring anna Friel of Pushing daisies. So Perhaps he gave up The Tudors for several roles. I can't think that they will do away with the character.

Woo hoo! My Tudors DVD came Wednesday! Apparently on some of the DVDs, there is no Finale episode but mine was just fine.

Ha, according to the quiz, I am an actress.

Quote :
LOS ANGELES -- It was a simple question to Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who plays King Henry VIII on "The Tudors."
My question: "At some point are you going to start gaining weight?"
I thought he was going to say, "Off with his head." The actor, a two-time Golden Globe nominee for his dynamic work on the Showtime drama, has the royal bearing down. And, man, can this actor talk.
"I'm not going to turn into the Holbein painting," Rhys Meyers told me. "I think it would defeat the purpose of what I've done in the first three seasons. I played in my way, you know. Yeah, I could have gone down dying the red hair and putting on the extra weightage for it, but then that becomes something that's already done by other people. I think if you want to look at somebody who's closest to what probably Henry looked like I think Robert Shaw probably is the closest. He had that sense of
athleticism, but also you can see that the weight is going to come on in later years. I'm not that guy. This is not that show. We wanted to do something that had this historical backdrop to it with 'The Tudors,' which is a very, very fascinating period in time, but we are also making television, and it has to be entertaining. So we have to sort of mess with history a little bit. And in costume me as Henry you are going a completely different way. You are looking at a perspective, a certain perspective of Henry. I think the reason why that image of Henry standing there with all that weight survived so long, that image is so implanted into people's brains, is because Holbein was a great artist and it is great art and
that's why it lasted. There were other paintings of Henry when he was a younger man but these are not the images that are instilled into our mind. We have this, especially in school, I was instilled with this, you know, with this food-guzzling, beer-guzzling, womanizing rotund monarch, well, he was a tyrant, he was a bad politician. He was a lapsed religious man who was completely out of touch with his spirituality by the time his reign ended. And he went through a lot of turmoil within that reign, but I had to play him my way so, you know, maybe a few extra pounds but nothing to write on your computer about I'm afraid."

On that point, his majesty was wrong.
Executive producer Michael Hirst, who has written all 28 episodes so far, weighed in, too -- so to speak.
"It's not a documentary," Hirst said. "But the effect of it has been to absolutely galvanize the teaching of history in schools and universities, not only across America, in lots of other countries. I think, 'The Tudors' is now showing in about 70-some-odd countries, but we have it on records and lots of people write me e-mails about how people, students are really interested in history now."
Hirst said classes discuss what historically accurate and what isn't. "It's made history come alive for lots of people," he said.
Another way "The Tudors" will depart from the historical record: Pretty singer Joss Stone will play Anne of Cleves, Henry's fourth wife.
Anne of Cleves is "usually represented as unattractive, and that's why Henry didn't like her," said actor James Frain, who plays Thomas Cromwell. "The chances are that actually she was attractive. It's just that Henry didn't like her, so that's how it went down in the books."
Portraits of Anne of Cleves suggest she was attractive, Frain said.
"She was definitely one of the more attractive wives," Hirst said.

So how do you feel about JRM's take on the weight issue? Honestly, I think he is too vain to put on weight for any part, but that would'nt come off quite as artistic now would it? Wink

That's what I think it is too. He's right in that Henry was a handsome athletic young man when he became King and that he wasn't always the fat bloated monarch we think of today. But by the time he married Jane Seymour, he was heavy. However, I think TPTB don't want Henry to be unattractive, so even if JRM wanted to either gain the weight or go the fat suit route, I doubt if they'd let him.

Oh I bet he's vain. But PLUS it is on Showtime and it is supposed to be sexy. So really I don't think they would show a overweight naked leading man. Everyone knows it is not totally accurate. I do disagree with him about Robert Shaw . I think Ray Winstone is probably the closest in looks. I do like the red hair though. And they don't even let Baby Elizabeth have red hair.
I wonder when red hair started to be like you know sort of a curse? Because the Tudors were red haired.

Is he naked on the show??! DAMN! Too bad I don't get Showtime! Evil or Very Mad

I love red hair!! Too bad they didn't keep The Tudors with red haird. There have been lots of gorgeous red headed actresses! There doesn't seem to be as many red haired actors I can think of.
