The tween, Mads, finds it hard to fit in. Having feelings for a girl in class and a clumsy farther who is a teacher at his school doesn't help. By an uforseen chance of events, Mads becomes somewhat of a hero, but will he win the girl?
well i didn't see the whole series (it would be too painful), but i think that i saw enough episodes to make a review. the story is simple enough, it goes around the old northern/viking gods, and northern mythology. in my opinion it is really stupid and misguiding, and sometimes even shitty, because of one fact. they Didn't read the source material, northern mythology. that means that the story is full of really really big flaws you easily spot, if you know about northern mythology. the biggest disappointment is the final fight, ragnarok, having read about it in the mythology i was excited, but what we got was really anti climatic, i don't know how they could make it worse. if you look away from the flaws in the mythology, the story is quiet decent. the acting from most of the cast isn't that good, only two actors play their role really well, martin brygmann and peter frödin, probably because they are professionals. they don't use so many effects in this, so there isn't really something to comment on there. so all in all 3/10, only because martin and peters acting, and the fact that they set the focus on northern mythology, which is an important legacy for us Scandinavians. sadly they didn't read the mythology that well, or else it would have been a lot better.
