My Obsession

May 13, 2008 at 4:43 am (Napa Valley) ()

A place to lose your head.I have an obsession, and it’s called The Tudors.  It is by far my favorite show that has ever  been on TV, and since my college TV watching days of 90210, there have been some fabulous shows …Sex and the City, The Sopranos, Big Love, Rome, and the list could go on.

I know it is an obsession because:  1) the recorded episodes are never deleted, 2) I watch them repeatedly if I can find nothing else on, and 3) if a friend wants to catch up on episodes I tell them to come over and feel free to turn it on.  I love the acting and costumes, the historical context and embellishment.  And really, the storyline is so insane that one could believe it was actually made up…but it really happened!  One lusty king fell for one clever girl and because of it they brought down the entire Catholic religion in England- would that even be possible in modern day times?

I pray that they continue the story through all six wives, because I know from a lot of reading that it really does get more insane and even harder to believe that these things actually, actually happened.

And as a special treat here is a plaque at the Tower of London where Anne Boleyn lost her head…should be an upcoming episode.

    Hey Natalie! I just found your blog while looking for ideas for mine. You pop up when I googled Bocce and Napa. Anyway, my friend A’dell LOVE the Tudors too. That cracks me up that two people I know are so addicted to the show. If you’re ever bored check out her blog…www.jakethedog.typepad.com.
