Editorial Reviews

Journey to a thrilling ancient world in this epic new series about history's bravest and most brutally fearsome warriors...VIKINGS. Ragnar, a would-be Viking chieftain, longs to fulfill his destiny as an explorer and conqueror, alongside his ambitious brother Rollo and loyal wife Lagertha. But as Ragnar leads daring raids in distant realms across the ocean, treacherous forces in his Norse homeland conspire against him. Faced with shocking betrayals and the temptations of a mysterious seductress, Ragnar must wage war on the battlefield -- and within himself -- to protect his freedom, family and life. Includes 9 episodes with extended and alternate scenes.

After scoring blockbuster ratings as well as multiple EMMY nominations for the dramatic miniseries "Hatfields & McCoys," the History Channel is forging forward with its first ever scripted series in "Vikings." I don't know about you, but a series about Vikings seems perfectly attuned to a television market that is currently enjoying a plethora of dark and complex adult dramas on cable networks! Created by Michael Hirst, this nine episode series was shot in Ireland and looks absolutely terrific. One of the things that most surprised me on checking out this endeavor is just how expensive the series looks in terms of period recreations, sets, locations, and effects. It shouldn't be too surprising, Hirst has worked on a number of noteworthy historical dramatizations including Showtime's "The Tudors" (which he created) and "The Borgias" (on which he is an executive producer). As with any fictionalization, though, you should expect some liberties to be taken with the subject for the purposes of storytelling. I don't think, however, that this will be too distracting unless you are a scholar of the period expecting exacting detail.

The show basically revolves around one Norse clan. Travis Fimmel plays Ragnar, who in the early episodes is constructed as a family man who yearns to break free from the oppression of his tribe's leader (Gabriel Byrne as Earl Haraldson). Setting on his own course, he recruits a small band of brothers to attempt a victorious raid to the west in defiance of the Earl's express wishes. There will be numerous repercussions to this decision as the various parties jostle for power and any grasp on true leadership is tenuous at best.

Being raised in Iceland we started learning about our history at nine years old and we read our history as far back as Ragnar Lodbrok, we also learn to read Edda in its original writing, but that depends more on how long you stay in school. Lot of the knowledge also comes from archeological dig sites and artifacts. We are proud of our heritage so our history is relentlessly drilled in our heads. I know these characters fair to say, pretty well. Although a lot of the history of the Vikings was word of mouth until the 13th century, when the history of the Early Vikings- Icelandic- and Norse- saga was chronicled, mostly by the Icelandic historian Snorri Sturluson, it is fair to say that History Channel did their research extremely well, from the script down to detailed props on the set. The story in the first season, I have seen are accurate but of course, since this is not a documentary some fictional drama is woven masterfully into the story.

The actors are ALL great and convincing, the show is well produced and I really appreciate the work the History Channel has done. Absolutely no Viking stereotyping. Characters and their beliefs, their religion called "Asatru" (not Pagan) their way of life are treated with respect in this show. Even though we don't know everything about these characters historically, real or fictional, they are true to the culture of the time and therefore depict real people. When you learn the history of these people from this time period it's really impossible to separate their religion from their daily life. It was ingrained in everything they did, small or large. It is also true that women were treated with more equality, and it traditionally remains so, in Nordic culture today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Norsemen (and Shield Maidens) rule! April 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
For far too long, history has condensed the story of the Viking people into a comic book saga filled with primitive characters raping, plundering, and wearing funny horns, breastplates, and flaxen braids. Thanks to the History Channel, we have the opportunity to appreciate an engaging, well-acted, fairly accurate picture of these intelligent, spiritual, self-disciplined, and hardy craftsmen, clansmen, and seafarers whose skills and civilization in the 8th and 9th centuries was more advanced than that of much of the European continent. Consummate shipbuilders and navigators, Vikings managed to traverse the deadly seas of the North Atlantic (in open longboats!) to discover North America centuries before Christopher Columbus was even born. They settled much of Ireland, England, Greenland, Russia, and Iceland. The Norsemen didn't manage to accomplish all that they did by being rage-filled, crude, undisciplined savages. This show capably demonstrates the high degree of cooperation among their clan, the rules that governed their communities, their work ethic and egalitarian spirit, strong sense of loyalty, and the abiding sense of justice that is still deep, deep in the Scandanavian DNA right up to today.
During the first millenium, there was lively trade between Scandanavia and Germany, Spain, what is now Russia, and even North Africa. Norsemen were justifiably famous for their craftsmanship in building homes, barns, and other dwellings, for painting and needlework, and in fashioning arts from silver and pewter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Show
I recommend this show. It is pretty good with an interesting story that very very slightly follows history, mostly to the point of using the names of historic Vikings. Read more
