As if people looked that good and were that clean back in that time.
True, True. One of the great missed opportunities of comedy is that Monty Python never ended up doing a send-up of that era. Can you imagine how good it could have been? Michael Palin as Ann Boleyn, John Cleese as Katherine of Aragon, Eric Idle as Jane Seymour, Terry Gilliam as Ann of Cleeves, Eric again at Katherine Howard, Terry Jones as the last one, and Graham Chapman playing Henry?
Rowan Atkinson's Blackadder shows were a pale shadow of what the Pythonites might have done with it.
