I started ordering The Tudors through Netflix and I would like to know how many seasons there are in these series. Thanks Amelia

Tudor's for me have been over for about a year or more. Actually the Borgia's has ended season 1. I hated the way The Tudor's treated Catherine Howard; she is my least favorite queen, but she definitely deserved better than the Tudor's gave her. Essentially an idiotic skank who couldn't tell you what color the sky was. I also felt the show did a disservice to Katherine Parr, her story was too rushed and her personality wasnt elaborated enough. On a shallow note, I hated that the shows refusal to age Henry made Katherine appear too old.

I do not care for The Tudors at all. It is far too fictionalised for my taste. However, the Borgias series is brilliant and I look forward to the next series.

I liked The Tudors mostly for the gowns and hairstyles. Jonathan Rhys Myers as Henry was just too laughable for me to watch. To be honest The Borgias is kind of boring, maybe because I am not Catholic and don't know a lot about the family. But so far I am just waiting on pins and needles for Juan to disappear and The Pope to die. Also his attraction to his new mistress makes absolutely no sense to me. The stories aren't as consistent and the lines connecting them aren't as smooth as they were on The Tudors; the motivations of some of the secondary characters just don't make sense to me.
The costumes are ok, not as great as The Tudors, at least not yet.

There are actually four seasons. The fourth is not brand new, either, as you posted this in December 2011 and I downloaded all four in the summer of 2011. The fourth came out on DVD in October.

Back to the shows, does anyone know when Juan dies? Is it a few years after his dad becomes Pope and if so will it be this season or next season? And how did Cesare get a jericurl?
