Beautiful & Intense!
One episode and I'm hooked! The production quality is outstanding and the cast is perfect. I hope History snobs don't drag down the ratings, by hunting for historical inconsistencies. This is entertainment!! Beautiful, gritty, intense entertainment.
Take caution in watching any of the previews though, I think they give away too much. ;) You don't need a preview to tell you if this is your mug of mead.
Yes. Yes. Yes.
Socio-political, religious, and mythological, issues are all touched on here, backdropped around historical facts. The mythical Viking character NEEDED this series, and it pays its tribute in cinematic gold. THANK YOU HISTORY, and I now forgive you for Ancient Aliens...
This the best thing the history channel has ever put out. Best ever
