Libris Interruptus...Phillippa Gregory and "The Tudors"
Waiting for the warmer weather to arrive, and finding that A Room with a View is somewhat on the boring side, I've turned to watching back episodes of Entourage on HBO (hilarious if you've never watched it) and I've also picked up the first season of The Tudors, a great series on Showtime about King Henry VIII and his wives. As a complete devotee of Phillippa Gregory and her wonderful books about Henry VIII, I was very excited to watch this series, and so far I have not been disappointed. The guy who plays Henry (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is HOT. The scenery and costumes are gorgeous. Sam Neill is beyond evil as Cardinal Wolsey. Plenty of sex, intrigue and action. Who could ask for more?? The new season starts up on Showtime this coming Sunday at 9pm ET. Check it out!
