The epic cluster-frock that is Showtime’s “The Tudors,” featuring the improbably cast love-child of an elf and a meth addict Jonathon Rhys Meyers as the golden god that was Henry VIII in his prime. Costumes by six brain damaged monkeys — sorry, Joan Bergin (who we are sure is a lovely person but DAMN). There’s not much nice to say about the first episode of “The Tudors,” but we say it anyway.

This was so much fun! I hope you do more live-casts again.
CAN WE DISCUSS THE LACK OF NECK ARMOR ON THE MEN WHEN THEY JOUST?!? “let me put metal on ALL of my body EXCEPT MY NECK!”
Right! WHY WOULD I NEED ANYTHING PROTECTIVE THERE??!!
Tell us when to start the movie next time to play it in sync with your comments. Fun, fun.
Hate watching The Tudors is a pastime of mine. Seriously though, that last headpiece on Katherine of Aragon is a shitty Ren-fair thing. I think it’s a bad interpretation of an interpretation of a late Elizabethan headdress. I see that shape done over an over again by people who should know better. Pro-tip: don’t get your inspiration for your costume from other people’s shitty Ren-fair costumes.
