Vikings (3)

So apparently, my recent lapse in only watching Doctor Who has led me to miss out on a great show. About Vikings. According to James Francis, not only does it have a gripping storyline, it’s about as historically accurate as an Asterix book as well.

Which is something I kinda dig, meaning that I’ll be looking to grab the DVD boxset when it arrives. Here’s what you’ll find inside those high definition discs.

Vikings follows the adventures of the great hero Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), a Viking chieftain seeking to fulfill his destiny as a conqueror, alongside his ambitious brother Rollo (Clive Standen) and loyal wife Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick). Throughout his quest, Ragnar faces a path of betrayals and temptations to protect his freedom, family, and life. When Ragnar teams up with his boat builder friend Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) to craft a new generation of intrepid ships capable of conquering the rough northern seas, the stage is set for conflict.

Looks like an interesting show. No clue yet when this will reach us locally, but seeing as how it’ll be out October 15 in the States, it should be here in time for the holiday season. Thanks to James for the link.

  1. Is this an adult series? I believe it’s by the history channel, so no naked ladies methinks…

      No nudity and the violence is gritty, but not flashy. Not Game Of Thrones level and certainly nothing approaching Spartacus. But it’s well made and written. The season peaked a little early imo – about two episodes from the end, but it’s still worth the journey and certainly up to that point. I’m keen to see what season 2 will bring.

      Gets a big thumbs up from me as well. Great series. It’s more adult in tone than it is in explicit material.
