The Tudors—Showtime Original Series

Here's something I'll definitely be following in the future.

The Tudors is a new series starting April 1 on Showtime. It chronicles the early reign of Henry VIII, who back then was not pasty and corpulent, but apparently was Jonathan Rhys-Meyers (Velvet Goldmine, Bend it Like Beckham). I highly approve.

Click here for a preview from Showtime. Warning--some adult content, as young Henry seems to have been a bit...oversexed. There are also a few more previews over at Showtime's official site, along with additional information about the series.

This looks like a good one.
