Trivia

The episode features archaic languages: Old Norse, spoken by the Vikings and Old English spoken by the Saxons. Only Athelstan, Ragnar and Ecbert are able to speak both languages. Ragnar and Ecbert are both taught by Athelstan. Athelstan usually translates. But Ragnar and Ecbert are able to communicate independently with the other language without a need to be translated.

Quotes

Floki: A creaking bow, a burning flame,
Rollo: Tide on the ebb, new ice, a coiled snake,
Floki: Sons of a king, an ailing calf, a witch's flattery.
Rollo: No man should be such a fool as to trust these things.
Floki: No man should trust the word of a woman.
Floki: The hearts of women were turned on a whirling wheel.
Rollo: To love a fickle woman is like setting out over ice on a three year old colt or sailing a ship without a rudder.

bugger me i love his show
22 February 2015 | by philverheySee all my reviews

did you read my title? good..

review done! now I must meet the minimum lines requirement.. did I say that I normally hate history productions? I do enjoy the premise of their version of TopGear, OK it's not Jeremy, Richard and Mr. Slowly .. but Tanner is a hoot and the other two grew on me... outside of that, I don't do cable productions (example:Anything from SciFi or however they spell it now), there was one other production I watched on History and it was "battles BC". An old professor from the Royal Canadian Military Academy is featured on it, so I kinda was self-obligated to watch it, now days you can see it on youtube, it takes the bible out of it's religious context and puts it into a strictly military context and does a marvelous job at explaining it all FACTUALLY with disclosures of SPECULATION, it also has many parts that are NON-BIBLICAL also, such as Hannibal...

to conclude...Did you read my title yet??!?!?!?! OK, disclosure, My family has a history with Charles I and Charles II many many MANY years after the Vikings invaded (look up "Sir Jordan Crossland" If you give a hoot.. but growing up with this and the conflict it involved I do LOVE seeing conflict In ye Olde England.. it spurs on all the imagined battles of my childhood...

and that is where I truly conclude.. With all the conflict and history of the old world, most every family has a storied past like mine, and it really is a reason to love something made to entertain.. live vicariously and enjoy the outstanding acting, the hardships, the story.. oh wait.. did you read my title yet?!? NO REVIEW HERE.. it's UP THERE ^
