IMHO the best show in television smile.gif I don't record many shows these days, but I do record VIKINGS. If you have not been watching, you are missing out smile.gif Here is a recap done through the Christian Priest character Athelstan's eyes. He is a stranger in a strange land and brings a unique perspective to the land of the Pagans smile.gif

If I had that channel I'd be an avid watcher for sure.

I'm assuming Athelstan is a Saxon, with that name.

It reminds me of Bernard Cornwall's 'Warrior' series of books, which also feature a young Saxon taken in by Danes. Also features the Lothbrok family too. Great stuff.

Go the Pagans!

Its a really cool show. I still have the second season to catch up on but the first season was brilliant.
the best docu-drama Ive seen. If you watch it and dont immediately want to be a Viking, you've not watched it properly cool.gif
Also it has Lagertha wub.gif

smile.gif For those not familiar with the Ragnar story, LAGERTHA is his main squeeze smile.gif She's also a full on, sword carrying "Shield Maiden" viking. Total badass chick smile.gif

Here she is kicking butt and taking names with her hubby Ragnar smile.gif

AGREED!! Lagertha is just freaking AMAZING. What a Badass Chick!!! Reminds of me of STACEY D but with Blonde Hair and a Sword instead of a guitar!! smile.gif

FLOKI is a great character as well smile.gif Just crazy as a bag of cats but wads of fun smile.gif

All of this is based on ACTUAL HISTORY which is something many folks don't realize it seems. The legend of Ragnar is very real smile.gif Any NORDIC land folks who knew of him before this series?
