Set in 790AD, Vikingane features the daily challenges of people living in a small Viking village, from power struggle, brother rivalry, gender equality, to betrayal and friendship. "It's the story of people from our time, but living during the Viking era. Of course everyday choices have far more dramatic consequences and that makes for great comedy material.Written by
horrible histories style vikings with adult humour....perfect
I just stumbled across this on Netflix. I clicked expecting a knock off of Vikings. Something to fill the GOT void.
Instead I got an interesting surprise, a Viking comedy. So the gritty look of history channels Vikings but actually a lot of humour. Some dark humour and some base humour(which fits the Viking idea very well). It reminds me of the kids show horrible histories, but this is definitely not one for kids. I can see the comparisons between this to Monty python but I actually don't find Monty python funny where this I did.
The humour may be down to personal taste but I found myself genuinely Laughing at the antics, which is something I don't do often enough with the mainstream comedies.
In regards to one review saying about the accents....really!? I think the accents actually help make it feel more genuine. Also, these guys filmed in both Norwegian and English that deserves serious kudos. Personally, I massively prefer the accents over dubbing and subtitles.
This is one show which needs a second season.
