The most impressive thing however was the look of the show. All in all if you want entertainment mixed with history it is a great show. Photography, art direction and just whole look is so lush and rich looks like a feature film. It looks like the west cost of Norway but the Village is called Kattegat. The first episode, Rites of Passage, is a good introduction. Some things are right, but every 5 minutes I am chocked about the failed facts about everything about vikings and Scadinavia. Vikings follows the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok, the greatest hero of his age.
And Scandinavia is used as it was one place. The trouble with too many shows today is they try to appeal to men and women, which is definitely and unfortunately, the case here, with the women just, argh, being annoying soap opera women.

As the Vikings come together to sacrifice and give thanks to their gods, Athelstan discovers just how strong his Christian faith still is. The dialogue has a thick accent spoken in English. In order to impress the pope and to be acknowledged as the holy Roman Emperor of Europe, around the year 772 Charlemagne took a great interest in converting the heathens to Christianity. The only thing that bothered me was the pilot when they desecrated the church. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode---all that lush eye candy for a novice historical student of the Viking culture! The series tells the sagas of Ragnar's band of Viking brothers and his family, as he rises to become King of the Viking tribes. Like Spartacus, he is a legendary figure and the writers of this series have a lot to play with in what was Europe's Dark Ages.
Kattegat is the Sea between Jutland and Sweden. I have read a lot about vikings and I can see the makes really went to great lengths to bring the true viking ways to the screen. Like I said, so far, so good. It's well written, exciting and charming. I'm glad to see this series because too often of late, we are getting our history from film, not books, so perhaps a new generation can come to know this culture.
Ragnar, the first great Viking leader, a man of both history and myth. If we insisted on only ever watching historical drama that was 100% accurate I'm pretty sure we would be watching none at all.

The story itself is really exciting, and I just want to watch more.
Way fewer lead characters to begin with, and also a more straight forward approach. I don't know so much about the Ragnar Lodbrok character, but Rollo Gangarolf is a very famous character in the Norse sagas. Happy to see Travis Fimmel in a role that totally suits him. Season 1 proved to be historically inaccurate but taken for what it is, entertainment turns out it being on the History Channel means nothing , it was good. Ragnar, pulling farther away from his wife goes to make peace with the death of his unborn son.
Similar to Beowulf and other related Viking dramas. It is a great show. The writer has no clue about Scandinavians and Scandinavian Landscapes! Great show, a solid nine out of ten.
