    Amazing Finale Season for an Amazing Show!

    The first season of The Tudors was great, but it was beaten up by Season 2 (my personal favorite beacuse it focuses more on Anne) which was absolutely incredible. Season 3 dissapointed the fans a little, but definitely Season 4 make up for it.

    Even though it is sad that the series have ended and that they won't continue the story with the rest of the The Tudors (Mary, Edward and Elizabeth), the finale episode is heartmoving, for it brings back from the grave the first three wives, among them our favorite (and I think I speak for everyone when I say this) Anne Boleyn, portrayed by a great actress yet not so well-known Natalie Dormer.

    If you haven't watched the series, watch it right now. I recommend to read something about the subject or read the differences between the show and how history turned out (they are not that big differences).

    One thing is certain. Once you watch The Tudors, you will adore history, if you don't love it already.

    This Season should have been nominated to more Emmys, not just in the technical aspect. I'm talking about the performances: JRM best actor, Natlaie Dormer best guest role, and some other actors...

    See it despite its blatant flouting of actual history.

    Creator Michael Hirst does warn us..."Showtime commissioned me to write an entertainment, a soap opera, and not history ... And we wanted people to watch it." He added that some changes were made for production considerations and some to avoid viewer confusion, and that "any confusion created by the changes is outweighed by the interest the series may inspire in the period and its figures." Hm...for anyone who loves their history, the major entertainment in watching The Tudors is discovering its historical inaccuracies. This is esoecially true if one is watching with a friend or significant other who is oblivious to the major liberties Hirst takes with what really happened. (Sample scene at my house: "It didn't happen that way! What really happened was...") If Hirst wanted to "avoid viewer confusion", he failed; people who watch the series with little or no knowledge of the actual events will probably stay blissfully unaware of the departures from reality his version of the story creates, and may walk away thinking they have learned something. (But hey, it was worth it right? As long as "...the ...series may inspire [interest] in the period and its figures." People who do know the facts walk away confused as to why Hirst felt he needed to rewrite so much of history. Now all that said, I love the series despite its flagrant disregard for the truth. The production design and costume design is stunning, and the acting is flawless. I enjoyed every minute of it, and my SO, after getting used to me indignantly hitting the Pause button to explain that Henry Fitzroy died at 17 and not as an infant; that Charles Brandon, the Duke of Suffolk, was far from a supporter of Katharine of Aragon, in fact she despied him and he hated her, often bullying her mercilessly on Henry's behalf; that Brandon was close to 50 when he married Catherine Willoughby, who was about 14 when she married him, although he looks a youthful 30 or so in the series; need I go on? But watch it anyway. It's a sheer delight if you can get past these issues (I did).
