    Vikings

    This is by the same person who wrote Elizabeth and also created The Tudors.

    Looks like it will be a very good series and I am looking forward to it

    One girds oneself for some serious hammer time when an opening fight scene of History's compelling and robust new drama series, "Vikings," delivers all the expected gore and blood spatter.
    Yet, beyond its blunt-force trauma, "Vikings" turns out to be an adroit and even elegant surprise, simply by aping some of the basic skills of a successful cable drama. The care shown for its dialogue and acting gives it "Sons of Anarchy's" sense of scope, while the 1,200-year dial-back lends it a dash of "Game of Thrones's" medieval mood. And a relatively modest budget keeps "Vikings" honest, in a "Spartacus" way, as a caution for those tempted to take it too seriously.
    But what I was most reminded of while watching the first five addictive episodes of "Vikings" was HBO's much-missed "Rome."
    "Vikings," created and written by Michael Hirst (who wrote the film "Elizabeth" and created Showtime's "The Tudors"), isn't that grand, but it possesses that show's same air of confident storytelling.

    It looked cheesy as hell. But so did Hatfield and McCoys and I heard that was great, so what do I know?

    I dunno.

    it's okay, definitely satisfies my itch for Game of Thrones.

    I'd just say check out the first episode and see what you think, theres currently only like 3 eps out right now.

    Yes, i am watching it and i am really enjoying it. made me google to find out if these were real people and events. yes, real people and places... With poetic license, of course hahaha


    Like jay said, i started watching it to curb my game of thrones itch, but now i really look forward to watching it. i would love it if they made this a real series, as ragnar and rollo had some really interesting adventures. ragnar is based off the real legend, and rollo is based on the conqueror of normandy, and he is the great great great grandfather of william the conqueror.

    I'm trying to binge-watch season 1 right now. It's pretty good. It's interesting to see the story from the Viking's POV, isn't it?

    I'm almost finished with Season 1. I started backwards, having watched Season 2 first, and got curious to see how it all started. Season 1 was better, particularly with the great Gabriel Byrne as the cruel chieftain. Season 2 is watchable but I have to see where it goes with Ragnar and his family.
