I didn't watch this show at all while it was actually on television. I watched the first two seasons on Netflix over the weekend. (YEP....ALL of them!!).
I haven't watched Season 3 (think that is the last one) since they don't have it so you can watch it online yet. You have to order the disc. Guess I could do that instead of waiting for it to be available for instant online playing.
I really enjoyed it and was surprised I never watched it before. They could have left some of the sex out of it, but I guess it added to the show in some way for lots of other people. I also think the tv version made Henry a much more likable person than he probably was in real life. The thought of him ending up so obese he had to be wheeled around in a mechanical devise is hard to picture.
I agree with those who don't think they will continue with the historical story line.
