Vikings is worth your time to watch. you can watch complete episodes of it off the history channel website: http://www.history.com

in the first episode, after an intense battle with the dead lying around, the leader, Ragnar Lothbrok, as a vision of the Valkyries lifting up a fallen warrior. you’ll see symbols, like ravens flying around (symbols of the valkyrie), a vision of odin and other norse mythology... the story itself is an intriguing drama. and of course, i’m rooting for Ragnar’s wife, Lagertha, who is a ShieldMaiden, a female warrior, strong and independent. She can lift any size sword and hold her own in battle and kick the ass of men bigger than herself. she rides along with the Vikings in their longboat as they raid england. i’m impressed that they got that part right, showing norse women joining the viking men in raids...

those of you that argued about religion on these forums will love the clash of religions in this series. the arguments between christians and the norse about which religion got it right, Christianity, Jesus on the cross, or the beliefs of the Norse in Odin, Thor, Freya...

Vikings continues to be the best I've watched in long time on history channel. haven't missed an episode yet. thinking about the religious debates on this thread, episode 8 (sacrifice) that aired last sunday touches on that. the Vikings go on their pilgrimage to Uppsala. lagertha and ragnar are struggling with the loss of their unborn child and pray to odin, thor, freyja... very moving. their thrall, athelstan (former English monk), is struggling with his own christian faith. i was moved when he was stumbling around the grounds of Uppsala one night high on some herbs given to him and he falls and a Viking helps him back up to his feet. athelstan says he'll fall once the Viking lets go of him. the Viking tells him he won't fall. the gods will hold him up. and he doesn't fall...

you can watch it here: http://www.history.com/shows/vikings/videos

i also love the opening intro of Vikings, the music is awesome:
