My Current Obsession

Is nothing related to beauty or fashion, but is very much pop culture! I can't stop talking about this show. Seriously, it's some of the best television I have seen in a long time. I adore historical drama, and this period in history is one of my favorites. I doubt there is anything in modern times than can rival the pure deliciousness of the drama of King Henry VIII. Britney, Paris, Lindsay, and all the modern eye candy have nothing on the royalty of the Tudor dynasty, and this Showtime series brings it to life in a way that modern people can understand. Stripping away the older English dialect certainly helps, as well as showing us the more human side of these amazing people. Written by the same author as "Elizabeth" with Cate Blanchett, he brings us the Tudors in all their royal, and personal glory.
It isn't for the faint at heart, though, or for children. It was a violent time, and Henry certainly had some questionable ethics in dealing with women. The sex scenes are fantastic, and let's face it - Johnathan Rhys Meyers is just hot. Natalie Dormer, who plays Anne Boleyn brings a depth to the character that you don't normally see in film adaptations of the period.
So, if you're interested in some incredible historical drama now that Rome is off the air for the season, give The Tudors a watch. You'll be glad you did.
