We're really enjoying the series, though it can cause a mental tug of war. As I was saying to Nin last night, I feel terrible for the people being raided, but can't help but admire the Viking guy (it's way too soon in the show for me to remember anyone's names!)for his sheer outrageous belief, and then he goes and proves he's right. Also, I stem from both the raided and the raiders, it's where my family came from over the centuries, so yeah, there's some admiration there. Also, Viking Guy's wife is awesome! Their marriage is one of my favourite aspects of the show so far. And last night's ep had this scene that tickled me immensely (Probably not the scene you're thinking of either :D).

ETA: And I can't help but giggle whenever the mention Loki, or Thor, or Odin. I'm sad, I know. So sad, that I'm changing the icon! Because.

I know. It's kind of upsetting, how much I love the protagonists. This is why I've never been particularly interested in Viking history—it's hard to root for the invaders. But, damn, they are mashing all of my buttons, and the actors playing Ragnar and Lagertha are incredibly good, and smoking hot. Plus, Athelstan already has my heart. Not fair!

They are doing a good job of letting the Vikings be sympathetic even while you know they are pillaging and raiding things. I am highly amused by the show.

hooray! I heard about this, and told Tivo to get me a season pass, but I have yet to watch - glad to hear that it's good!

I'm liking this show too - and adoring the wife!
