TV Review: The Tudors Season 3, Ep. 1

the-tudors-season-3-episode-1-header

The Tudors Season 3, Episode 1 opens with King Henry marrying his most recent true love, Jane Seymour, in the hopes of achieving his long sought after male heir to the throne. All is not well in the kingdom, not that it ever was. The pesky Catholics are pissed their monasteries are being pillaged and that their holidays are being withdrawn by Thomas Cromwell’s reformation. Mary Tudor has been abandoned by The Emperor of Spain and the Church. It was sad what she was forced to do to regain the favor of her father, the king again. King Henry is so capricious it is absurd and he is descending farther and farther down the road of a joke, a dangerous joke.

Henry is already looking at other women days after his wedding though he is trying not to. I skipped the part of the beginning of The Tudors Season 3, Episode 1 with the scenes from the rest of the season. They are far too telling though simply cracking a text book would tell the curious of the events depicted. I hope Peter O’Toole appears in this season. If he does not we always have Max Von Don though, which is no consolation prize.

    One minor quibble with your write up. You write ‘pesky christians’. Shouldn’t it be ‘pesky Catholics’? After all, Cromwell is a Christian, as are all the Reformers. Reformers (ie Lutherans) are Christians, they just don’t believe in worshiping the way Catholics do…as in praying to saints and only preaching in Latin. I know this is a nit-pick, but it just bugs me a bit that the Reformers aren’t seen as Christians, when, in fact, they were staunch Believers.

    Teri, You are a very confused girl. If you watched the season you would know that the lutherans and reformers are false religions only started to take down the Catholic Church. The Catholic church is the only true church started by Jesus. You are going to have to answer to God one day for spreading false lies about the Catholic Church including the praying to saints and masses only said in Latin. These are our right lies and if you do some research you will find this to be the truth. Remember Terri even the devil believes in Jesus and he is not saved so the religion you are practicing is teaching you fasehoods.

    “Remember Terri even the devil believes in Jesus and he is not saved so the religion you are practicing is teaching you falsehoods.”

    What exactly do you mean?
    I’m sorry, but it seems you’ve jumped to some VERY serious conclusions about Teri’s world view from one sentence. Calling the Catholics “pesky” doesn’t warrant the abrasive rant that you showered upon her.

    You don’t really know what Teri believes. For all you know Teri might BE Catholic. Is she not allowed to criticize the political actions of the church hundreds of years ago simply because those men and women happened to be Catholic as well?
