Yeah it is pretty decent but it really is a bit slow.

I actually like the show it has a game of thrones type of feel.

It does have GOT feel but I feel that GOT is more exciting than this show. I'm interested in Vikings but it's a little slow.

I have been. It's entertaining. Not sure what else to say although I have a funny to go along with it. I happened up on an episode of Sponge Bob and they were talking to a Viking and Sponge Bob asked him what Viking's do for fun and I said, "Well, apparently they have sex based on the show!" It made me laugh.

LOL It is so true. Pillage, burn and rape is pretty much the Viking motto. But I feel there are a few things that I don't believe to be that accurate.

One is the idea that this Earl or Jarl is willing to kill off children. I always thought from my readings that they felt the children and other Vikings were far more important than others. *shrugs*

And that moment when the Jarl went to share his wife I was just protesting but I know that Vikings would share their slaves or thralls but never their wives. But that turned out to be a ploy.

I don't really know a lot of the history so I can't say much on accuracy, but that part where he offered up the wife bugged me and last night's with him taking the credit for killing the rapist ticked me off.

Yeah. Have to see though. There are a few things that are bugging me but I haven't decided that I should write the show off so...
