I remember this show so well. I had an intense interest in the Vikings before this show appeared and became my favorite. While the other 12-year-old girls were mooning over the tall dark and handsome type, I was daydreaming about Jerome Courtland as Leif Erickson. I never missed an episode, except for one horrible, horrible time when my father watched a special about I think the Civil War. I didn't see the movie The Vikings when it was in theaters, so I didn't know the show was inspired by that. However, I did see the movie years later on TV, and loved it. Now that we have all these old shows on DVD, I'll be sure to get the whole series if I can. I'm so glad I stumbled onto this site! Also - this isn't old TV, but I also enjoyed The 13th Warrior, which is loaded with Leif Erickson types and has the added attraction of a youngish Antonio Banderas.
