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.

Travis Fimmel is the perfect leading man for this series. His acting has improved so much over the years. I am so sad to see the TV show "The Beast" with Fimmel and Patrick Swayze come to an end in the spring of 2009. After battling cancer, Swayze died later that year (September) ... in my opinion the show would NOT be the same without Patrick. The two men did an excellent job kicking "bad guy" butt in the 13 episodes in S1. So glad to see Fimmel get another shot at a multiple season show in order to show us, the audience, how much range he is able to do as an actor. Long Live the Vikings!
Viking ruthlessness slams you in the face from the get go and may offend more sensitive souls but this is history. Not the gory B movie garbage but the way these people fought and conquered so long ago. If you want to watch something different, I highly recommend Vikings. I save them up and binge watch when I'm guaranteed alone time to fully enjoy without interruption.
It's seems like forever each year waiting for the new season to start. My husband laughs as I count the months, weeks and days. If they cancel this series I and many more will be devastated.
It's not just a reenactment of historical events either but excellent plot, mystery, superb acting, complex characters, thoughtful directing that pleases the eye, scenes you have to rewind and replay just for the aesthetics. Man, this series has everything. Miles above your average TV series quality.
I really can't say enough good things about this series. Thank you History Channel for this wonderful experience.
The one and only negative thing I could possibly mention is the 'Blood Eagle' episode. That was too disturbing for me but it may not bother everyone.
Other than that, I enthusiastically recommend Vikings for high quality entertainment.
