Vikings - History Channel Original Series

40 posts in this topic

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. 


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Well, I watched the first ep... pretty good. I'll keep with it.

 

FYI, they replay the episode immediately after its over, so you wont have to miss talking dead. :P

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

I'm glad that an ax was put through that fat troll that was always doing the Earl's dirty work. That dude was so annoying, I've been waiting for him to get killed.

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 loved this cartoon when i was a kid. The animation looks good, the music is great, the voice actors are a good match. I'll watch this.

      I watched the first 3 episodes of this tonight and I'm loving it so far. Unlike the movie where everyone is stuck in a grocery store, the bulk of the cast is trapped in a mall, while others are in a church or on the road trying to avoid getting killed. Spike has done a good job with this. Depending on how they treat this series it could be their own Walking Dead kind of show. No zombies needed here with the amount of monsters ready to kill everyone.

      It looks good to me, except for Iron Fist. Even in this trailer he has to say "I'm Iron Fist". I hope the guy that wrote Iron Fist isn't part of this production, because if he is, I'll expect to hear Iron Fist say his own name again 100 more times in the show.

      This came out on netflix last week and I finished it up about a week ago. Its the fourth series in the Marvel/Netflix deal leading up to the fifth series called "Defenders" that will have Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in it. Those first three series were highly enjoyable and well made. I don't think I made a topic for each one but perhaps I will. The special effects, characters, plot and abilities of the heroes and villains in each of those series were well thought out and executed.. But then we have Iron Fist. Honestly this show was a huge let down. From what I remember in the comics and cartoons, Iron Fist was a smart ass guy with a sense of humor.. and is supposed to be the best fung fu master on the planet worthy of the power of the Iron Fist. In this series Danny Rand aka Iron Fist is a complete mess. He was raised by monks in a monastery for 15 years and instead of becoming an amazing kung fu master in full control of his body and mind he is a psychological mess with constant PTSD issues. wtf. The actor also appears to have done all his own stunt work which includes yellow belt kung fu lessons and no full length leg extensions on kicks. wtf.
      I was expecting some Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee action considering they are/were kung fu legends in my mind. Instead of amazing fight choreography like I'd see in either of their movies, we get the equivilant of a guy looking homeless half the movie getting into random fights with minimal kicking. Its not just the fights that are bad, but the acting and characters are worse. They repeat everything. I heard "I"m the Iron Fist" at least 5 times per episode.. I'm not kidding. Every character counterdicts themselves. One episode they'll talk about honor, the next they're doing illegal activities. One minute Danny Rand wants to get control of his father's company, the next he completely abandons it. One episode a character is emotionally torn about Danny, the next episode they betray him.. again.. and again, like a game of tennis. I don't know who was in charge of this show but it was horrible. The worst part of the entire series was the emphasis on the multi million dollar corporation he somehow still had legal rights to after being declared dead over 15 years ago. At least half the series was focused on board rooms and the fate the company that overall had no significant impact on the actual series. Imagine a Batman movie where half the movie was Bruce Wayne and, alot of screen time on his associates, making business decisions about Wayne Enterprises. Who needs action and kung fu in an action based kung fu series when we can instead sit here and watch people squabble about the price of the drugs they're manufacturing and whose in control of the company. Ehhhhh. Daredevil had a bit too much courtroom drama with the lawyer aspect of it, but in the end it kind of worked since it was a build of Punisher having his own series. In Iron Fist, I suppose this boardroom crap and the lack of a single major enemy throughout the series for Iron Fist to fight against was more of a build up to Defenders than a standalone series.

      Netflix is making the equivilant of Mythbusters 2. Yay. I've been needing a mythbusters fix and I'm glad these 3 are coming back to entertain us.
