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

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.

      The season finale just ended this past monday. I started this series and gave it a couple eps. I almost dropped it, but by the third ep shit started going down and I got sucked into the plot. This was a surprisingly great series with excellent acting. Its so refreshing to see a 1 off series like this. I don't think there is going to be a season 2 and if there is it would probably ruin the experience. This played out like an anime in a sense. It started and finished the entire plot. There was no filler episodes and everything tied in together. I hope this inspires AMC to make more stand alone short series. Hell, I wish more of america tv would follow this direction instead of endless reality shows or drawing out a series so long that it gets canceled without a finale. This show proves its possible for US tv to actually give us a story in a complete season. Well done AMC.  I can only compare this to Stephen King mini series, except better. Now I wish all those old Stephen King mini series were actually given the full season treatment like this.

      This is without a doubt the best thing I have seen on tv this entire year. 4 series in a massive justice league / captain America civil war style plot spanning 4 episodes and it was amazing. I really hope they make another crossover special next year. Superheroes versus the ultimate Nazis. The episodes are online if anyone wants to watch:

      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.
