Trivia

The carved beast heads seen on the prow of the viking longships were there to scare the spirits of hostile lands. Vikings were more than willing to fight the people but did not want to suffer at the hands of hostile spirits, nor did they want the spirits aiding their enemies. Although not shown in this series, they were not always dragons - they could be wolves/ravens etc. They were also removable and would have been taken off when approaching home so as not to scare the friendly spirits as this could bring ill health, a bad harvest or other such bad luck. A more modern equivalent would be a battle flag carried at times of war but not of peace - if you saw a longship approaching with beast head in place, you knew their intentions were hostile.

Goofs

The role of the Seer would have much more likely been held by a woman (a völva) in actual Norse society. See more »

The Gods Heard Me!
4 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

I've been looking forward to a viking film or TV series for many years, and when my wishes were finally granted, I was very worried that this production was going to be total crap. After viewing the first two episodes I do not worry about that anymore. Thank you, Odin:-)

As a person of some historical knowledge of the viking era, I can point out numerous flaws - but they don't ruin the story for me, so I will let them slip. Historical accounts about those days are, after all, not entirely reliable.

Happy to see Travis Fimmel in a role that totally suits him. A physical and intense character, with that spice of humor that is the viking trademark from the sagas. Gabriel Byrne plays a stern leader, that made me think of him in "Prince of Jutland", and Clive Standen seems like he's going to surprise us.

Been pondering the Game of Thrones comparison, since I love that show too, but in my opinion Vikings has its own thing going on. Way fewer lead characters to begin with, and also a more straight forward approach. Plenty of room for more series with this high class!

Can I wish for more than the planned nine episodes, PLEASE!!!
