Well I'm done watching it. It started here last night, and it was just awful.
BTW, If Buffy wasn't real, who broke Angel's heart? Wink

Sharon I have to say I admire your guts for watching the whole episode, 5 mins was enough for me. What a lot of Bullplop!
I could overlook a few issues such as the accent, actually that's the only thing I can overlook. But not everything else. Convent upbringing I don't think so. She did stay in a religious house, when she was little in Scotland.
Inchmoholme it was called.
Sometimes these producers seriously need a kick up the arse. People are going to watch this crap, (although Sharon and I won't watch it) and believe that this is actually what happened. I do wish that whenever they want to portray a historical event, that they do at least stick to the true story even if they spice it up somewhat.
The Tudors had faults, such as no Mary Tudor no marriage with France, and Margeret marrying the King of Portugal, and Lard arse not growing into a fat stinking lump of lard, who had to be carted around everywhere on a sedan (loosely worded) chair, but for the most part they did stick to what we know of Lard arse they just sexed it up, rather outragiously.

Since I learnt that one of Mary's 4 attendants was called Lola..I now have a pair of conflicting earworms..

And with Lola's love interest being named Colin I really feel for you Anyanka.

Can't believe I used up good space on my laptop with a download of this. So many shades of wrong I lost count.

Well I watched ep 2…there was talking, dancing, running around in dark passageways, talking about diapers(nappies), a traditional game of ice hockey, more talking…a sudden outbrust of baseball, 2 women bitching about thier dishwashers…possibly lola and Colin eating McD's…,more prancing in passageways..

THe writing just didn't hold my attention at all. And I'm sure the Tracy Brothers and Lady Peneolpe were far less wooden actors than those staring in Reign.

So far I haven't found any fanfic …though I'm sure it is being written …

Anyanka. Are you ok? I seriously advice you to seek medical attention, as soon as possible. Watching this reign series can damage your mental sanity. LOL. The five minutes I was able to stomach of the first episode, certainly make me think I was sickening for something, actually strike that sickening yes for something no.
As for fanfic, there is bound to be someone who is going to rave on how wonderful this series is etc.. (Someone possibly with a straight jacket and an iron mask on)

What period did you think the dresses were from? I thought some where between Disney's Cinderella and the 60's hippie style.

Definately a pseudo-medeaval feel to the costumes..some looked more like Stuart or even Georgian in style than mid-era Tudor. Though I must admit I know very little about French clothing of the era.

Hmm I would say that most of the dresses came from Primark or Marks and Sparks. The shirts were from the 80's, you could possibly pick them up from any good charity shop. and the jewellery was a the plastic stuff you buy for little kids to play with for dressing up. Now I'd better go and lie down for an hour I have a headache coming on, from having to skim through 2 minutes of the episode.

I don't think I can stomach any more of this mindless diatribe Barnett. Like I said the first 5 minutes was enough for me. I wasn't well for a whole 2 days.

That the beauty of DVD's Bella that way you don't miss them. I'm right now watching all 4 series of the Tudors, again for about the 4th time, and have the White Queen all ready to go, in the player. If I could afford it I'd have one of those multi disc players I wouldn't have to get up and change the disc, well not for a while at least :) . But I rather think Dinosaur would scrag me, he hates my historical DVD's.

What a relief to read these posts. I was seriously doubting myself after trying to watch the 1st episode more than once trying to complete it. What an embarrassing piece of entertainment.Surprised

This is late, but the show is literally crazy! I actually DO find it entertaining, but at the same time extremely stupid.. The strangest part to me is that Francis is portrayed as handsome and fit/healthy/maybe in 20s, but historically, he was about 13 and sickly. Which makes it really awkward that Mary is aware of his 'past' with women..
The whole weird sorcery in the woods subplot is also strange, and who on earth is 'Bash'… if it were entirely fictional/fantasy like Game of Thrones, it would be entertaining enough, at least for me, but it's literally shallower than Mean Girls. And the wardrobe oh my goodness…

Having only watch 5 minutes of the first episode before falling into a coma I'm glad chkylie has given this decription of what is happening in the mindless pap now. If I had of continued to watch a few minutes more I'm convinced I would have been declared brain dead.
LOL chkylie, Have you booked an appointment to see the shrink yet? or are the little men in white coats champing at the bit to come and take you away anyday now… LOL

I totally agree with you, the inaccuracies are enough to make anyone with even a hair of knowledge in Tudor history want to rip their face out, and all of that aside it's just so juvenile.. I would do anything for a period drama with some actual history in it, right now

It certainly makes me wish The Tudors were back on TV. With all of its inaccuracies, it was so much better than this tripe. I love Game of Thrones.

well…I PVR-ed this weeks episode. I didn't realise how little story there actually was until I had to skip over the ads. I swear there was only 30 mins of actual programme…
