Vikings Comes to History March 3, 2013
I was very excited to see that we are getting the series Vikings here in Canada on History, and wow I'm going to have to FIND The History Channel because I don't ever watch it. But I will now! Who can resist a series on Vikings?
Here's a series description if you want to know more:
"The word “Viking” has been synonymous with brutality, terror and mystery ever since the first Norse warriors appeared along the coasts of England and France at the end of the eighth century. Their notoriety for barbarianism without pity was an important part of the mythology that grew up around them. And while Vikings are still characterized as such in popular culture, the reality is much more complex, visceral and powerful than their reputation suggests.
The extraordinary tales of the lives and epic adventures of these warriors are told in Vikings, a new nine-part scripted series premiering Sunday, March 3 at 10 e/p on HISTORY. The drama portrays the world of these Dark Age raiders, traders, explorers – not from an outsider’s view, but through the eyes of Viking society."
Vikings stars Travis Fimmel, Gabriel Byrne (In Treatment), Clive Standen, Katheryn Winnick, Jessalyn Gilsig and Gustaf Skarsgård and the series premieres on March 3, 2013 at 10pm ET on History (US and Canada).
