We don't quite know how "The Tudors" can possibly work in a verse or two of the Herman's Hermits' classic "I'm Henry VII I Am," but we do know that this season is the last possible opportunity for the show to do so. Season four of the acclaimed program is going to be its last, and that means not only is the final opportunity for a Herman's Hermits song approaching, time is also growing short for Henry to produce that all-important male heir.  Anyone who has picked up an English history textbook knows whether or not he will succeed, but that hasn't made this series, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, any less compelling.

    Thus endeth the reign of Henry VIII... on Showtime anyway.  We don't know that the final episode in the series will actually take us through the end of his reign, but this is the final episode and consequently we're calling it the end of his reign.  The road hasn't always been a smooth one for Henry (or, perhaps, it's never been a smooth one), but it has been quite exciting to witness.  We feel like we're living history, we just keep expecting Walter Cronkite to pop up after every major moment and say "and you are there!"

    The third season of Showtime's "The Tudors" reaches its end.

    Don't worry, fans of faux historical soap operas, Showtime has renewed "The Tudors" for another season. That's the good part. The bad part? The show's fourth season will be its last.

    So savor Jonathan Rhys Meyers and company while you can.
