Storyline

With his new boat completed, Ragnar recruits a crew and prepares for departure in a few weeks. His wife Lagertha wants to take part in the great adventure but Ragnar says one of them must stay behind to care for the children. She's definitely not pleased. Earl Haraldson has his spies and is soon aware of Ragnar's plans but is convinced there are no lands to the west and they will never be seen again. After several days at sea Ragnar and his men attack Lindisfarne Monastery on Lindisfarne Island just off the coast in Northumbria, England. Many of the monks are killed and the others enslaved.

Poor writing ... especially dialog.
23 March 2013 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

The second episode of the series, as often happens, does not match the quality of the first which itself was hardly spectacular. I'd really like to see a well-made Viking series. Unfortunately, this isn't it. The production values are adequate and the acting is usually adequate but the writing, especially the dialog, seems amateurish. I find myself constantly wincing at the dialog thinking: that's not how people talk. Also, conversations often seem to lack sufficient context and feel unsatisfactory. The writing lacks sufficient nuance to enrich the story. This story would have more value if there were better connections to the back-story. Generally, this is pretty basic, low-level hack writing. I'm going to try one more episode - #3 - and if it doesn't get any better, I'm gone.
