Vikings - History Channel Original Series


Sledgstone
  • History Channel's new original series Vikings. It premieres tonight March 3, 2013 at 10pm. If you haven't seen the multitude of commercials for this show over the past week, then check out these videos. If the production quality of this show is as good "Hatfields & McCoys" then History channel might have itself a potential hit series on its hands.

.

I might watch the first episode tonight, but unfortunately its on at the same time as the talking dead. Depending on who they have as a guest on the show, I might skip it to check out Vikings.

I dunno if I want to watch this. Im leery of History Channel making actual tv series. If it was like a "Story of us" documentary I'd be sold. I think History should do more of those, They are very well put together. I don't want History to become like MTV...

I figure its only a matter of time before all tv channels to turn into crap. :crap:

 

This reminds me of AMC.. before it started making series it was a channel dedicated to classic movies.

If History channel can make a successful series about some events that actually took place in history, I'd prefer that over them making more Ancient Aliens episodes.

The Storm Is Coming ... eeeehhhh sounds like ... Winter Is Coming from Game Of Thrones. 

 

Good production values and visuals. I'll check it out.

Yes! I was able to catch the repeat at 11pm. I liked it. I think this show has some good potential. I'll keep with it and see how the plot goes. ^_^

I didn't know what to expect of this show and I'm pretty surprised how quickly they sailed west, killed some monks and came back already. I was half expecting the journey to last half the season. lol. I'm not used to a series that actually time skips boring months long sailing trips. I kind of like that. :P

Well what has me worried is that in a Historical sense, the King's land he is currently raiding is the king that had him executed. lol I hope this series goes on for more than one season.

 

Spoilers! O_O Thanks for ruining the ending. :crywithno:

 

lol. j/k. :P

 

I hope the series makes it to at least 2 seasons. But with how they time skipped the ocean voyages, I wonder if they plan on time skipping after his eventual death to show the exploits of his sons.

He probably escapes and goes an attacks the other 3 kings, and in the end they all team up together to bring him down :P I doubt they will be entirely accurate. Him and that King will probably long standing rivals throughout the series' seasons. Hell, he might not even kill him.

I'm thinking this season he will spend more time fueding with the Earl until they clash and he takes him out. By the series season preview from the debut ep, it looks like they do battle with each other. While he does this, they will probably plant the seeds for season two and Ælla.

The preview for tonights episode looks like a lot of sh*t is going down. I didn't hear anything about it being a mid-season finale or anything, but the preview looks like a major plot change is going to happen at the Viking village and Ragnar looks like hes going to be killed. O_O

I doubt he dies. The whole season preview after the 1st episode showed him fighting the Earl with axes and swords in front of all the village people.

That was a good fight. I was half expecting a three shield fight like in the movie "13th Warrior". I loved what Siggy (the Earl's wife) did as soon as her husband was killed.. She grabbed a blade and killed that disgusting bastard that her daughter was forced to marry. Haha. Good for her. :D

Best episode yet of the series IMO.

1. I think Rolo's life will be short lived now that he accepted baptism. Floki is right about this one. He might still last into next season, but If he tries to turn on his brother for Siggy, Odin will be on Ragnar's side.

 

2. How terrible for Ragnar's wife having a miscarriage. I'm still not sure on Siggy's intentions, but right now she seems true to her word.

 

3. Floki is definitely becoming one of the most dynamic characters of the series. I feel like he is closer to Ragnar than his own brother.

I like Floki. He is creepy and crazy. lol. I definitely like him better than Ragnar's brother. I like how the show time skipped again. 9 months later, they now have multiple boats that can sail west and they sped right through the pregnancy. This episode was great just because of the amount of action in it. The one thing I want to see more of are women vikings. There were a few at the beach battle, and while they held their own, they were minor characters. It sucks about Lagertha's miscarriage.. I'm hoping she'll get back into the fighting though. Shes a strong female lead and I'd rather see her bash more people to death than rule them from a throne.

      Tuesday my favorite festival of all time for GW2 comes back. I'm more hyped to play than I have been in a very long time. I was a n00b when this festival first debuted, and I'm sure a lot of nostalgia boosts it's memory for me, but even then, I remember feeling that Halloween and Wintersday paled in comparison. When the year spun back around and it didn't come back I was disappointed. Labyrinthine Cliffs is going to be much easier to traverse without the need of the aspect crystals, but the Dolyak Race should still be funny. I'm looking forward to the additions they've made, and I'm ready to grind out Boss Blitz. I hope they've scaled up the bosses properly and made the rewards worth grinding so it doesn't become a ghost town if people go back to Istan.

      Ordered some Corsair Void Pro headphones for Prime Day. I've been putting off a new headset for PC for way too long. I have my cord duct taped and wires are coming out of the ear pieces. Its hard to give this headset up because its lasted me 15-16 years. Its just some cheap ass standard Microsoft headphones i bought at target years and years ago. The ear cushions look like cloth because the fake leather coating all fell off or deteriorated. Even with all the wires falling apart, it still works without a hitch. I don't really need turtles for PC, but the Corsair's were on a pretty decent discount, so I went with it.

      So I finished watching the first season of My Hero Academia tonight and you were right DX I absolutely love the show. I think most of that has to do with my absolute adoration for All Might but I could be wrong (but I'm sure I'm not, you can't hate the man he's just fucking perfect).
      Gotta say for a shounen series it certainly has a lot going for it. Great humor, awesome character development and characters , a good story (I only say good for now as it's only S1 that I've finished, I hear it gets a lot better), and a pretty kick ass soundtrack. Not going to say I don't have any problems with the show (it suffers from some of the things I hate about shounen series) but those are greatly overshadowed by everything I said before.
      I'm honestly looking forward to starting S2 tomorrow (thank god I'm on vacation) and hopefully starting S3 before I go back to work (if I don't get lost in the myriad of other things I have to do this week).

      I completed my 6th world completion on Guild Wars 2. It will probably be my last. Mounts definitely made this one much easier to complete, but it still wasn't much fun. My first two runs were done the old school way with WvW map requirements. My third, forth, and fifth were done post HoT with gliding, and elite specs providing me with more mobility and power. This last one took less than half the time, but the hearts are so tedious, it's too much. The Beetle is cool for zipping around the map and unfogging everything. You may pick up a few WP and POI along the way, but if you were to move from heart to heart, half the time you'd just get your boost meter full and you'd be at your destination already. The raptor is still the best for these scenarios. The best thing the Beetle is for is getting to an event fast before it completes. Also the skimmer made maps dominated by lakes and ocean so much faster. With 10 gifts of Exploration, I doubt I'll ever grind out the Gift of Mastery track 10 times to go with it. I kind of wish I would have bought more than I did before that change occurred.
