The Six Wives of Henry VIII

I've only caught a couple of episodes of THE TUDORS but despite the big budget and pretty new stars I doubt it will ever hold a candle to the 1970 BBC mini series. There is just something about those British actors...when they get going they knock the blocks off the rest of the world and here we find a stellar array of character actors to bring this classic tale of England alive. While there isn't a weak link in the lot special mention must be Keith Michell in the lead and the make up department who transform him into Jenry through the different stages of his life. All around great stuff and a must see for those currently addicted to said TUDORS.
