Seemed like an unnecessary take on Henry VIII. Its been done to death.

I thoroughly enjoyed this underrated two-part British television miniseries. Great cast selection. I thought Ray Winstone was excellent as the gruff and bellowing Henry. Helena Bonham Carter made a dignified Anne Boleyn. She's a magnificent actress -- nice to see her in a non-ghoulish role. Mark Strong (whom I've yet to see play a good guy); a righteous Sean Bean; a nubile 20 year old Emily Blunt (rrRROWWRR!!)... Rampant high treason and the inevitable resulting head-rolling. FIVE STARS.

Among the things I most enjoyed about this TV-series retelling of the familiar story of Henry VIII's six wives:
1. Ray Winstone's version of Henry (borders on street thug)
2. Fabulous two-sided cat-&-mouse games between Henry & rebel leader Robert Aske (Sean Bean)
3. Interesting beheadings of Anne Boleyn (Helena Bonham Carter) & Thomas Cromwell (he got way more than he deserved.)

Henry VIII (playing cards): "How did you find that card? ...I thought I was the only man allowed to have four queens..."
