    Default Vikings (tv-series)

    So apparently there isnt a topic for this great tv show

    Its actually one of the only series that i have followed, ever. Thats how good it is.

    I couldnt find a trailer that does justice, so ill just post the first episode here:

    And the producer talking about the first episode(will have some spoilers in it ofc): http://www.history.com/shows/vikings...=518971d79ac04

    So anyone watch this show? If not, you should! Its currently on season 2 episode 9(coming today/tomorrow depending where you live), so it makes a good vikings marathon for those who havent seen the show already :P

    I'm a fanboy of this show. Rarily more than a day goes by before Ive seen a new episode when its released.

    There are some minor aspects I dont like much about it (Athelstan's visions for example in later episodes), but overall its entertaining and interesting and the actors (especially Ragnar imo) do a great job.

    Yes if you're not watching, you should. It's a great show, it's historically (as much as possible) accurate and takes the Vikings, their society and religion seriously. This doesn't hurt either.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Pff, he's a total wuss! Ragnar is much more badass.

    .. Although Lagertha trumps them both in terms of badassness.

    Perhaps but Rollo is going places. Literally. Like Normandy.

    This is one of the main reasons i like the show so much, it helps to bring out parts of the history that the evil christians tried(and for the large part succeeded) to take away from us. And the reason why i say us because finnish mythology is really similar to that of vikings, and well lets just say that we share history(and genes up to 50% in some parts of finland) with them, except that finnish history was repressed further by christians and svedes who later invaded finland.

    Ps. Rollo is said to be(not in the series but in old norse sagas) descended from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fornjót if someone is interested. Also when it comes to norse vs finnish mythology, maybe this sounds quite familiar:

    Meh....despite this being one of those 'must watch' shows on my list. Its only just started here in Oz, after 4 episodes I'm pretty lacklustre about it. Clearly good casting, nice depictions with costumes, scenery and all the rest of it. But something about it just shits me in that can't be bothered watching it kind of way. I'm keenly interested in folklore and history ordinarily. I think its the testosterone leaching out of my iPad....

    Yes, although I'm afraid this is why I like it as much as I do.
