TV show description:
Created and written by Michael Hirst (The Tudors), this TV series takes place in the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore (and raid) the distant shores across the ocean.

Ragnar’s ambition puts him at odds with local chieftain Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byrne), who insists on sending his raiders to the impoverished east, rather than the uncharted west. When Ragnar teams up with his boat builder friend, Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard), to craft a new generation of intrepid ships capable of conquering the rough northern seas, the stage is set for conflict.

Aside from warfare and bloodshed, the series also tells the story of family and brotherhood; capturing the love and affection between Ragnar and his wife, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) — a respected warrior in her own right.

Other characters include Ragnar’s brother Rollo (Clive Standen), a fierce fighter who simmers with jealously; Earl Haraldson’s wife Siggy (Jessalyn Gilsig), a dutiful beauty who may be less than loyal; and monk Athelstan (George Blagden), whose Christian morals clash with the Vikings’ pagan society.

Only one thing I can honestly say I truly hate about this show.
NOT ENOUGH EPISODES!!
This show I believe will run it’s course, however long that may be.

This is one of the best shows that I have seen in a long time. my wife and I are big history buffs and this show for what we can tell looks and feels very authentic. We just started watching the show a few weeks ago and are caught up in it and can’t wait to see the next episode.

The Vikings is one the top television shows in years.
In addition to watching the show, I will buy the blu-ray of the third season when it comes out.

This is a fabulous show with an authentic feel from the wardrobe to the fight scenes. I find myself waiting anxiously for the next episode to air. It is the one and only show I watch on the History channel.

Please, please, please, don’t ever cancel the very best show I’ve ever watched! I wish it would go on forever, but at the very least for many seasons to come.

Vikings; without question one of the best shows on TV! The premise is true to history and new to an audience sick to death with nitwit sitcoms or the cheapest of all to produce, the reality show. The contest of a set of people that will make any sacrifice, preform any humiliation for their fifteen minutes of fame. The Vikings script, production and acting captivate even the audience that are just spending time surfing the channels hoping to find something of interest.
The History channel has hit on a winner, not only entertaining, but may actually spark some of the younger viewers into an interest in history itself.
There is; as normal one glaring fault; the greed of the network as the show itself is overrun with commercials. This is pervasive throughout broadcasting, two minutes of the show then four minutes of commercials. Going so far as one minute of the show, then back into four minutes of commercials. Great acting, a story that keeps the viewer coming back for the next week’s episode, what more can a TV network ask for? Don’t be so dam greedy cut a commercial or two and the History channel will reap the rewards of the top rating’s for this time slot!

I want to appeal to your artist design and respectfully ask that you keep the foul language out of the series.

Very captivating. The best portrayal of the Viking lifestyle I have ever seen. Can hardly wait for the next season to begin.

We look forward to the next episode. It is one of the best series on TV. Most of tv is for twits and boring or supposed to be funny and isn’t. Vikings is so different; please don’t cancel it ever!
