Sunday nights have continued to be powerhouse TV nights and that sure is the case with Vikings on the roster. Tonight we have the season 1 finale of the brutal (but beautifully designed!) show at 10pm on History.
If you are new Vikings, or missed any of the episodes, you have a chance to catch up before the finale as History.ca is airing the entire 9 episodes marathon style starting today at 2pm EST and then all the way straight through to the finale staring at 10pm. I'd be tempted to tune in on the hour every hour simply for the gorgeous music that accompanies the haunting opening.
I'll be curious to see how they bring Season 1 to a close, and I'll admit the show is a bit challenge to watch due to it's brutality but I find myself drawn back in time and time again for the layered storytelling, compelling characters and fantastic performances, particularly by Travis Fimmel, Katheryn Winnick, Clive Stranden, George Blagden and Gustaf Skarsgård. Plus the design, oh my... this show is gorgeous whether you are seeing braided hair or blood on the beach they always find a way to make it heartbreakingly beautiful.
Vikings has been renewed for a second season which will air 10 episodes in 2014.
