This is one of my favorite adaptations of Henry VIII and his wives. The actor playing Henry is in my opinion of of the best actors ever to play the role. Also all the actresses look like they could have have been the queens they are playing.

How many of you have seen this series and what did you think of it?
My favorite is Katherine Howard, I found the way the situation was played out was quite interesting.

I am currently re-watching Katherine of Aragon's part and they just introduced Anne Boleyn. She is kind of a (words).

I really want to see this series! I've seen clips of it on youtube, and I believe episode 5 is posted in it's entirety, but the others aren't. I checked my library, and they don't have a copy and neither does my local video rental stores... : ( Do you find this valuable?

Netflix has the entire series. They used to have it on instant view, but it was recently taken down. They still have the DVDs though.

As for the series, I agree. It was SO different, but I absolutely adore it. I watched it about four times on Netflix before it went off instant view, and I just fell in love with it more each time. I'm currently trying to get up some cash so I can buy the DVD set for myself.
