The series documents the colorful reign of England's King Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), who had annulled his marriage to his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, at the end of Season 3.

I love it when TV can be both very, very good as well as good for you. Such is the case with a logjam of terrific historical dramas competing for attention this Sunday. Two of them had me fighting back tears (and occasionally losing the fight), and then theres Showtimes The Tudors, that stimulating royal tonic of sex, religion and other courtly intrigues. Not a lot of boo-hooing while watching this Henry VIII romp, but rarely a dull moment, either.The quality honors this weekend go to HBO and PBS. HBO for concluding its remarkable John Adams miniseries with an episode of quiet, pained humanity as the nations second president (Paul Giamatti) goes into retirement with about as much gracewhich is to say, very littleas he conducted himself in the political arena. Grumpy, discontent, impatient to the end and convinced hell be forgotten by time, John never lets up. Theres a terrific scene in which hes invited, in his 90s, to view the portrai...
Jonathan Rhys Meyers by Jonathan Hession/Showtime
Jeers to Jonathan Rhys Meyers for his one-note performance on The Tudors. No, make that two-note: As King Henry VIII, he swings between pouting and rage with nothing in between. Such a limited emotional palette suited Rhys Meyers fine when he played a shallow sociopath in Woody Allen's Match Point, but it quickly grows dull to watch on a weekly TV series. (And does anybody else think it's historically improbable that Henry is prettier than any of his wives so far?) In the bodice-ripper's second season, the truly regal presence of Peter O'Toole as the pope, no less only makes Rhys Meyers look more plebian. His work's unfit for a king.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Natalie Dormer, The Tudors
In The Tudors' (Sundays at 9 pm/ET, Showtime) steamy second season, Henry VIII becomes a royal pain for Anne Boleyn — and the pope.King Henry VIII is all grown up and has politics — and sex — on his mind. In the second season of Showtime's bodice ripper The Tudors, Jonathan Rhys Meyers relates to the monarch's new maturity. "I like growing older," he muses, sitting in his trailer at Dublin's Ardmore Studios, puffing on a Marlboro Light. "I just turned 30, and it does inform the way I play Henry, who is much more mature and less erratic. I've changed over the past year."
Ask him how, and the angry young man reemerges: "It's none of your business." True, Rhys Meyers had a rough 12 months, including a drunken brush with authorities at the Dublin airport, days before the death of his mother. And The Tudor
