I've decided my goal is to be all caught by the time the show comes out for a new season, which I'm thinking will be next January. Haha, so the pacing hasn't changed a bit. It's interesting how all the Oprah shows seem to go under the radar. It seems like Soap Opera Digest would be a good fit for the show. But it's been nice as you say as I've not stumbled across any spoilers except for when I accidentally play the wrong episode and the "previously on" spoils things for me. I love English history too so The Tudors was "spoiled" for me long ago. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed the series and was sad to finish it up last night.
