The Tudors Recap – Season 3 Footnotes Episodes 5-8

Hello, and Welcome to the CanuckMom (1) , and Pusher 7 (2) Footnotes page for The Tudors Season 3 Episodes 5-8.

1: I swear I will finish The Witcher…by 31st December 2020.

2: You know who you are…I don’t, but I do know that you want me to finish The Ten Commandments. I swear I will finish The Ten Commandments…by 31st December 2020.

Well, I’ve stuck it on the footnotes page for half a season. It should be pretty hard to sidle out of that commitment. Harder than actually doing the work? I guess we’ll find out just how Henry VIII I am (I am).

Oh, and I think I’ve found an easier way to do this.

That’s it. That’s the introduction to the second half of season 3 footnotes page.
