I have to respectfully disagree about Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as Henry. We've seen him go from a younger and more playful king to a man obsessed with his age and fading virility, and he has been directed well. He's shown moments of humanity -- the moment that especially sticks with me is when Thomas More was executed, and the beautiful montage they made of that. He is changeable, stormy-tempered, and everything I could want in a Henry.

ETA: Also, studmuffiny? In earlier seasons, sure. But he is playing older and looking much, much worse than he could. (That, and putting him next to healthy, vibrant Henry Cavill and all these beautiful young women makes him look old and tired and probably sicker as season four goes on -- I've been busy getting my first year of graduate school done so I haven't had a chance to watch the last three eps or so.) They are not idealizing him to the point that I think you think they are.

And of course they're fudging the history. But I find it much less an egregious offender than say, The Other Boleyn Girl.

But I agree totally about Tamzin Merchant. I love her as Katherine and am so disappointed she's not going to be Dany anymore.
