    The song for the opening credits makes me laugh my ass off, too. But I still like the show.

    Wasn't yelling. I accidently hit my caps twice but didn't want to fix the whole thing. I'm a lazy bitch. I have no problem with you not liking the show or him. That's your preogative. I do think he is a great actor and there is no bias. WE don't all like the same things. He sucked at first/ His first role was a tarzan thing and he sucked....he was great on the beast and as i said...i feel this is his role.

    Why do you laugh? Curious. ;p;


    If I had a heart by Fever Ray is an excellent song.

    Ok so some random thoughts on Series 1. It was a good yarn, I was entertained, didn't mind the smirking too much. They managed to put couple of hundred years of history to 1 year but oh well that's storytelling. But beware, the bitching starts now.

    - the candles. in every fucking room there were shitloads of candles to burn. Candles were expensive, but in this show the poorest of the poor had like 4-5 candles burning in every room all the time, even when you could see through the walls that there was sunshine outside. which brings me to next subject
    - the see-through walls. Clearly the peeps who built the sets had never set their feet in Scandinavia. Every building in this show was a fucking barn. The meekest summer wind would tear those shoddy walls apart. In Scandinavia its fucking cold, the snow and rain comes sideways.
    - People living in core family units. Um, no. Man, wife, two kids and a dog in a two bedroom house is a modern invention. Not to mention that they lived in a farm, so there would be need for workforce in feilds. There would be grandparents, aunts, etc extended family + servants and slaves. If you owned a land, you will need men to farm it. One dude who is away raiding is not going to be enough. There would be one girl at least slaving in the house and one or two men working in the fields.


    There were other stuff that bugged me but I'll ignore it now. I loved the raids in England, that was the best part of the show. It was exactly as I imagined it to be. Bunch of tall blond pagans with axes riding in raping and pillaging and Brits going just wtf just happened.

    forgot to add that WTF that you mean that Vikings did not know that England was there? There was trade, ships went front and back god knows how long. Romans loved Baltic amber, Tacitus wrote about Baltic seas, do you really think that Scandinavians had not heard of the brits before? I mean, Shetland and Orkney Islands are right there, next to Norway. You just sail south from there.

    BeantownBitch and Sassiness like this.
    People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.

    OMG Ragnar is so fucking hot. After Sons of Anarchy ended I was so depressed I wouldn't get a Charlie Hunnam fix anymore but Ragnar makes up for it. The plot lines are ok too. lol

    Edited to add: Yeah I think she peed on him. That Princess chick is hideous/crazy.

    I keep meaning to binge this. I've seen a few random episodes, and what I've seen has impressed me - but also confused me, because that's generally what happens when you start a show 3/4 of the way into the second season.....

    the ads for season 3 look amazing.

    I just binged Season 1 and I like it quite a bit. Huge inaccuracies, but I'm not really watching it to learn anything, just to be entertained. Ragnar has creeper eyes and is not doing it for me and I hate his smirky acting. Every once in awhile he looks kinda hot, then he turns around with that smirk and i go off him again. I think Lagretha and Rollo are the stars of the show and Rollo is smoking.

    I really hate that bitch Aslaug.
