Is it me or is Henry getting more Irish with every ep of season 4? Last week I fell about laughing every time he spoke - nothing wrong with the Irish accent, it's lovely - but just so out of place especially as he only had a slight lilt before. The execution scenes were well done though, and the best thing about the Tudors is that it doens't have great crashing waves of music during the dramatic bits - in fact, it often goes for complete silence; much more powerful.

I couldn't put my finger on what was wrong, but yes, you're right!

I still haven't seen season 4. :o
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I thought it was the weakest season, but you'll decide for yourself.

And they tried to get him to age his voice over the last couple of episodes. That made me laugh!

Now I am curious how they tried that.

Not so far as I know. He did get a beard though.
