Trivia

It is speculated that instead of making the vikings in the series one nationality, the producers chose to make them a collected "scandinavian" people. Thus, the locations representing Kattegat strongly resembles Norwegian landscapes, the accent spoken is clearly Swedish, and the plots are based on Icelandic sagas about Danish heroes, kings and battles. The idea is also supported by the name of the settlement "Kattegat" - in real life, this is not an area, but the sea connecting Denmark, Sweden and Norway. See more »

Goofs

The Viking Age government is shown to be theocratic. In reality, the government of the Viking Era was an elective monarchy. The Norse had the legal and religious right to dispose of their kings which were elected in votes and had the legal right to oppose a royal policy at a thing. See more »

Looks like a good voyage for History Channel's VIKINGS
6 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Viking era is an exciting one. I'm glad to see this series because too often of late, we are getting our history from film, not books, so perhaps a new generation can come to know this culture. We are getting a glimpse of a very unique, if savage way of life that helped shape Europe.

The series itself has a wealth of legend to draw from and fill several seasons. The series opens in 793 AD, however, Ragnar's fate is beyond that. Like Spartacus, he is a legendary figure and the writers of this series have a lot to play with in what was Europe's Dark Ages.

So far so good for this series. The first episode, Rites of Passage, is a good introduction. I am hoping that since it is the work of the History Channel that we will get some authenticity in this series and not just entertainment. Like I said, so far, so good.
