I didn't expect to enjoy this series. I had an idea it was just an excuse to throw Jonathan Rhys Meyers in with a crowd of other pretty people, add some sex scenes and be done with things. 

Now I'm not saying The Tudors lacks eye candy or titillation or historical inaccuracy. But...I've sort of fallen in love with it regardless! Actually, I love the eye candy and titillation too because they give equal time to the intrigue and conspiracy and theology and politics and everything mixes together into this utterly addicting mélange. Yes, it's a soap opera, but I have been completely seduced. I would watch more soap operas if they were period pieces. 

And yet, where the hell is the fandom?! Doesn't this show have everything that you'd expect to inspire a large-ish fandom? Look at bloody Merlin for pity's sake! 

Personally I'd love to see some epic hate!sex between Brandon and Cromwell. Come on, look at these two. )
