    Vikings (IMDB)

    Anyone else watching this?

    I'm up to episode 6, and after an indecisive first couple of episodes, it's grown on me a lot.
    Ignoring the often cheesy accents and CGI, it's developing some strong characters and plot lines. The most obvious comparison is Game of Thrones, and whilst not up to GOT standards, it's worth watching.

    Now off to watch ep7.

    I've heard good things. Really must check it out, be rude not to.

    Other way for me I'm afraid. Gave it three episodes but found it progressively harder to swallow and have bailed.

    I nearly bailed within the first three episodes but stuck with it.

    No, I doubt it. It is fictional, more of a Viking soap opera, but slightly better than a usual soap.

    Wow, Vikings are a popular theme it seems.

    Yeah, I've watched loads of Viking programmes and never know whether I've seen them or not because they're all called bloody Vikings!

    Thanks for the tip about Vikings. Can you let me know when it's on TV please. The 2013 Vikings, not the 2012, or 2011, or 2010 or...

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    watched it all over this weekend, it did start a bit slow - but I enjoyed it more and more as the series developed. Very good, they are making season 2 so will look forward to that.

    Yeah this was a pretty good series, will be watching the second series.....although the nordic accents were pretty ropey i thought.

    Well yes, there's normally two people in a couple, and three people in a threesome.....

    Threesome - captured slave monk = couple hence they ;)
