Vikings: Season One Blu-Ray Review
 


Synopsis: 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. Includes 9 episodes with extended and alternate scenes.

Review: The History Channel is famous for many things, including great historical documentaries and specials and more reality based shows like Pawn Stars.  Now, they've decided to join the dramatic cable TV craze and delved into their first scripted series, Vikings.   This nine episode first season is full of action, drama and phenominal production values.  The show is dark and complex with well developed characters and a story that far outweighs other historical dramas.  Obviously it isn't completely factual by any stretch, but I never thought I'd be into a series about Vikings...but I'm sold.  This is a must have.  It would also make a great Xmas gift.

Interest Range: Drama, Action
