Vikings are among the most vile people ever to inhabit the planet. To see them portrayed as noble heroes defies logic. The only viking show I would ever watch is one which correctly shows the vikings as the merciless, vicious fiends that they truly were.
I have watched the first two series and it does a reasonable job of portraying Viking life reasonably realistically. Very bloodthirsty people but that's what they had to do to survive. I enjoyed it. If you like game of thrones you will probably like this.
No , but my husband ,who watches very little TV , other than football, news, and Alan Kohler's finance segment on ABC does .... He loves it. I think it satisfies all his primal desires....plunderous bloodletting and conquests all in the name of capital and territorial expansion !!!...Ohhhh and not forgetting the ravishing of beautiful maidens!!!
