    The History Channel Vikings

    Any other fans of the Vikings show on the History Channel?
    Last season in progress.
    I have enjoyed it from the start.
    Good drama based on some historical events.
    They just killed off Lagatha the most fierce shield maiden

    I've watched every episode, but I feel this final season has just wandered about. The show lost its momentum when Ragnar died.

    The first season was good, the second lost my interest.

    I'm not well versed in Viking history so I thought there was entirely too much 'modern' philosophy put into it. Maybe the Vikings were centuries ahead of the curve though? At least in societal roles.

    I’m a Swede and the wife Norwegian, we battle every day.
    Good show, OV is right, wandering plot and doesn’t follow the true history of Ivar.

    Not a true historical drama, just based on events and some characters.
    Better than the Hollywood movies of the past.
    I think they doa pretty good impression of what life was like back then

    Not really thinking it's even close to what life was like, maybe what events transpired though. I'd be surprised if they all had good oral health, good hygiene, or a good diet. But, as I said, I'm no history scholar. I still don't know what the Indians used to wipe the hind ends.

    They live in Wisconsin, I saw one working in the public electric department. Vikings all over the place up there, Polish and German too.

    Great place to live, loved it! Wonderful food, they do bread and beer right! 👍🏻

    Same here, and I agree with OV.....

    Agree, I've started watching it only because of Travis Fimmel and once he's gone it just lost its charm for me. I felt the same with GoT and Sean Bean's death in season 1.

    So few decent stuff on TV now days. Not a perfect series but I find it entertaining and lots of action.
    Also Shield Maidens are SO HOT!

    I saw the History Channel was coming out with a 3 part mini series on George Washington on President weekend in February.
    I hope it is good and not a lot of revisionist crap.
    Not too sure about this one, I saw Colin Powell was one of the people being interviewed. He was such a disappointment.

    Well thanks alot was going to watch it but I'll just wait for Kilted Cowboy to let me know how it ends. Bet you tell the kids they shoot Ol' Yeller when the movie starts.
    Those are my principles, and if you don't like them.....well, I have others.
