***Plus, King Henry VIII was quite handsome in his younger years. It was only after a severe leg injury that prevented him from playing sports that he turned into the morbidly obese man who's portraits people are familiar with.

** It especially strange as the show had no problem recasting Jane Seymour.

*** More jarring than rewriting history and promoting other minor existing, or inventing completely new, characters to play 'Biff the Understudy' to Norfolk and Cranmer?

*** They couldn't really write her character out of the show, from a historical perspective...

* It bugs me that the show indulges in the "Sex equals ratings, so let's show as much sex as possible!" pandering often. Another point of contention I have with the show is the way they handled secondary characters. Aside from Wolsey, More, and Cromwell (who the audience actually gets to know), I couldn't care less about the advisor(s) of the seasons. Often times, they just disappeared into the ether without warning.

** If I recall correctly, Jane Seymour was only in one or two scenes at the very end of one season before being cast for the next. I didn't even notice this the first time I watched it. On the other hand, recasting characters with as much prior screen time as Norfolk and Cranmer would have been very jarring in this kind of polished costume drama.
