    History Channel's Vikings

    Started last night. It looks very promising. Odin and the Valkyries were represented in the first 5 minutes. It's bloody but I am hoping it does ok and explores more about the pagan side of things.

    I wish I had cable just so I could watch it, I have to see if they are going to put it on Hulu...

    I was also looking forward to it, because of the pagan side. I am glad they mentioned some of the gods multiple times. Particularly Odin and Loki.

    I've seen it on Hulu - I haven't watched it, but I plan to. It looks interesting, although I haven't seen so much as a trailer. I have a soft spot for Odin so it is something I'm looking forward to.

    What's nice is my hubby is asking questions about stuff. He is supportive but not interested.

    Re: History Channel's Vikings

    Wow, I just saw it. I have to say, I can't recall seeing Vikings portrayed on television quite like this. At least not in any other movie or television show. It takes liberties, sure, but it does manage a real sense of historicity as well.
    If you want to be thought intelligent, just agree with everyone.

    I haven't watched it, yet... but I don't have high hopes.

    I missed the premiere but have the encore and the rest of the series set for recording. I'm excited! Sounds promising.

    I've really been enjoying the show. I'm glad it's been picked up for a second season!
