I’ve been looking for a decent new TV series for some time now but most of what’s out there have left me indifferent.
However, last night i watched the first episode of Vikings, a TV Show which is being shown on the History Channel(!). Although i can’t say i was terribly impressed, i can definitely say that i am interested in watching more. As the title of the series indicates it is a show about Vikings. Once again, a well known film actor is on the show. Gabriel Byrne. I will have a better opinion after a few more episodes.
“Vikings follows the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok the greatest hero of his age. The series tells the sagas of Ragnar’s band of Viking brothers and his family, as he rises to become King of the Viking tribes. As well as being a fearless warrior, Ragnar embodies the Norse traditions of devotion to the gods, legend has it that he was a direct descendant of Odin, the god of war and warriors.”
