So for all of you who have been watching Vikings from the beginning how exciting is this?
The King is back ! I am so stoked. For those who have not been watching this series let me give you an insight:
The series is inspired by the tales of the trading, exploring and raiding Norsemen of early medieval Scandinavia. It follows the exploits of the legendary Viking chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok, his crew and family like in the 13th century sagas.
I found some brief plots and synopsis online for each season to give you an insight:
Hot blooded and young Viking warrior Ragnar (Beautiful Travis Fimmel) who longs to discover civilizations across the seas with his friend, the gifted craftsman Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard), he builds a new generation of faster ships and challenges the local ruler, Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byrne), a man of little vision, to allow raids into unexplored North East England. His brother Rollo (Clive Standen) who really fancies Ragnar’s wife Lagertha (Kathryn Winnick) helps with all the raids. The first raid is in Northumbria. Not only do they return with Gold but a slave who infact is the monk Athelstan (George Blagden) .
I cannot give much away except that it is full of some mean & nasty sword fighting, lots of love & lust and it gives an insight towards how people of different cultures and religions can come together.
The acting is exceptional I mean for a while you think that this is actually taking place in this era and you are witnessing it happening, it really has you hooked and come on just look at the actors faces
(I love the bald look)
So as I am up to date just want to say this time around I’m really excited to see Rollo and how he is going to deal with his ” unrequited love” or shall I call it lust? This princess Gisla is a proper diva but she’s French so I’m loving all the French dialogues ❤
(oofff get a load of him)
(she’s not happy – bless her )
Floki honestly I don’t know what’s up with him he’s acting like a dirty little rat.
I can’t wait. Feb 18th tonight and buzzing !!
(Frankly we both dont like waiting so.. yno )
Come on Bring on the RAIDS !
