The adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok, the greatest hero of his age. The series tells the sagas of Ragnar's band of Viking brothers and his family, as he rises to become King of the Viking tribes. As well as being a fearless warrior, Ragnar embodies the Norse traditions of devotion to the gods. Legend has it that he was a direct descendant of Odin, the god of war and warriors.
Whilst Vikings may be based as much on myth, as fact, its core understanding of the world they lived in, makes it inherently watchable. Vikings were conquerors, traders, settlers, and politicians. All elements, that can be found blended in intricate and intriguing ways, in this series. Its helped too be decent acting, direction, fantastic sets and rich visuals. I do feel that said this series needs to come to an end soon as its really reached its potential and much more, will simply start to feel a little repetitive. A great watch. 9/10.
