The Tudors Season 2 Ep 5 Review

Anne miscarries, Henry fornicates, More is executed and there is symbolism overload. Despite all that this was dull.

Cranmer has so little to do, I'm not surprised the actor isn't returning for season 3. Where is the Duke of Norfolk? The sanctimonious More was like Catherine of Aragon, too eager to martyr himself. Anne's reaction to cramps was to stick her hand up her skirt? Not exactly Queenly was it? Henry having random sex with forest wenches, ick. Mary Boleyn has married William Stafford and is kicked out of court. There is foreshadowing of Cromwell's fate. The grinning extra at Fisher's execution was very noticeable. The cameo of Michelangelo and the Sistine chapel was hilarious. Papa Boleyn's reaction at the miscarriage is to scream at Anne: "What did you do to kill the baby?". Charming, the Tudor version of Steve Wilkos.

Fashion Notes:
Anne's tacky green tiara.
Margaret More's headdress and veil.
