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.

      Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

      BoTW took Game of the Year award and its well deserved, but I'm also glad NieR: Automata got best musical score, because its very well deserved.

      Bestbuy and Amazon had some good deals on movies yesterday. Got 9 recent releases on blu ray for about $50. And I got a 4tb western digital external hard drive from bestbuy for $79.

      IFC had a Three Stooges marathon on Thanksgiving. After we ate, we watched that the rest of the day. I haven't laughed that hard for that long in a long time. Good stuff.

      My PC had an update and restart only option last night. I had no idea there was another 'creators update' for windows 10. It was the 'fall creators update'. Damn thing took over an hour to install and reset numerous times. And apparently I have a 'windows feature update' that I still have to do. I guess I should check my nvidia drivers and update them today too. I've been having some windows 10 crashes lately so hopefully this update will fix that.
