LOL SM & Madeleine :p
it is a nightmare and it is super hot today....And yep it is 110 degrees here in boiling hot Australia. It is so hot that we have our doggies inside or else they'd perish in this heat and thank God for A/C's. I also bought my dog, Barney a baby pool so when he does go out for his toilet he loves jumping in his pool for a splash :p ...H'es a black lab and a real goofball.

And to Susan...There are so many good performances that it is hard to name just two...I thought the actor who played Thomas Boleyn was also very good and Maria Doyle Kennedy was an excellent Katherine of Aragon...Then of course there is James Frain..Sam Neill...But I did find that as the good actors had to exit the show went down hill, unfortunately and series 4 was painful to endure. But I suppose others loved it!

Yep series 4 was pretty tortuous at times, I just treated it as a comedy which sort of worked for me! Hope you and your doggies are keeping cool OK.

After enduring Season 4 of the Tudors I got the impression that even JRM was tired of the show and once all the good actors left, there was no saving it. I bought Seasons 1--3 of the Tudors but I wont buy season 4...I simply cannot endure the torture of it and all that incessant giggling!

As for the temps..It's in the 100's again today :( ...I am not venturing outside or else I'd feel like a chicken on a rotisserie...and yep my dogs are staying indoors.

I just finished season 2 today and watched the first episode of season 3. I noticed that BBC America has the first episode of season 4 coming up. I will DVR it and will bear in mind the opinions people have of season 4 when I watch it. ;)

I'll look forward to reading your views on Season 4, Susan.
