This is a great follow up to the first series, and although I thought that was great, I think the second series is better and has grown up. I think it is faster paced than the first series and less sex and violence for the sake of it, I felt sometimes that the first series put it in there for shock value. This series, you begin to really understand the characters, their plotting and way of thinking. Not sure how they can keep it up for all his wives, they may have to kill off 2 per series now! Also, not sure how Jonathan Rhys Meyers will turn into the fat king he became in the later years, however looking forward to finding out!
Even though I watched this on TV, bought the series as well, as this is one I will definitely be watching again. Looks especially good in HD, so if you get the chance, this version should be the one you purchase!
I loved the first series, but found that several characters had changed purely to freshen things up. In addition, the storyline is incredibly depressing, everyone getting killed off (not just his wives!) and wouldn't stand up to repeated viewings. Certainly watchable, but all the interesting scheming of the first series was replaced by homosexuality, divorces and miserable characters.
