    Same. Initial trailers looked good.

    Fantastic debut episode. The cinematography is beautiful, and the story is great, because it's taking on a traditional role in an untraditional atmosphere filled wtih anti-heros, like Rangar.

    This is definitely right up the alley of anyone who loves these types of historical dramas based on barbaric cultures like Vikings.

    Game of Thronies, for example, should probably give this a go.

    Yes I really think the storyline seems to be fantastic, you just can't wait to see how things are going to go down. Very well cast as well IMO, i like all the actors who seem to fit their roles perfectly.

    Poop. I didn't watch any of the first few episodes. I'll have to see if they'll re-air them, or if History channel has an On Demand function.

    They do have on demand, so far the show is fucking awesome IMO.

    I watched the premier and didn't think much of it. I'll give the 2nd episode a chance.

    Well I probably have a stronger interest in Viking culture than the average person since they were ancestors of mine but I think the show is great so far regardless of that, it's a show that anyone should be able to enjoy if you're interested whatsoever in history or even if you just like adventures with ppl going on the hunt for the unknown and use swords and axes killing each other etc.

    Nice little swerve last night with Rollo. I figured he'd flip on Ragnar for sure, since he's in love with his wife. Fastest way to her would have been to eliminate Rag and get him sentenced to death.

    I think it has gotten steadily better with each episode with the 4th being the best so far.
