Trivia

"Loðbrók" is not a family name but a nickname meaning "hairy-breeches", presumably from a habit of wearing fur leggings. Vikings often acquired colorful nicknames derived from personal habits, characteristics or traits. The sagas and histories of Vikings are populated with such figures as Helgi the Lean, Ketil Trout and King Harald Finehair (formerly Harald Shag-hair). See more »

Goofs

King Aella could not have reigned in Northumbria at the time of the Lindisfarne raid, in 793. His reign begun around 863 and ended in 865. See more »

Thanks, History Channel!
5 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

I've watched the two first episodes of the series and I can say that I'm POSITIVELY surprised.

I didn't know if this would be any good but I'm most certainly intrigued. It's well written, exciting and charming. The show is very enjoyable, especially if you're interested in Scandinavian/European history.

I love Norse Mythology and I am very happy that this show aired, I just hope it continues going in a good direction. :)

All in all I can't wait for the remaining episodes and if you're considering picking this show up I'd definitely recommend it.
