Vikings: Our Thoughts + Emotions

Last night, I caught S1E3 of The History Channel’s first scripted drama, Vikings. I think it’s still too soon to tell for this one (kind of a cheap rip on the Game of Thrones-y vibe? Just.too.violent.? Or genuinely cool concept plus good execution?)…. but here were my immediate thoughts and emotions after catching all the raunchy barbarism.

1. Jesus christ, Travis Fimmel is a perfect specimen of man.

2. Boy am I glad there is a zero percent chance I am descended from these violent, violent people.

Blonde and Bloodthirsty, all of ’em.

3. Where are all the viking hats?

Give me silly horns or give me death!

4. But I guess really cool braid situations are a decent alternative to never washing.

I’ll definitely be tuning in next week, because I really am hoping that the Lodbrok fam – priest threesome takes place (or something like it), and because I want to see what that bitch who is manipulating the king (?) is up to (there’s always a devilish female behind a brutish male leader, DUH). And also to continue judging when Travis Fimmel’s eyes have been CGI’d or when they are really just that startlingly brilliant to which I can only say …

  2. 3. Where are all the viking hats?
    Probably in Valhalla with all the other myths. No sane person would take a horned helmet to a battle, because if you wore it and somebody hit you on a head with e.g. a club, the sheer force when the club slides to a side and gets stuck on/hits the horn could break your neck. Not to mention it would make a nice handle if somebody tried to slit your throat.
    Viking warriors wanted to get to Valhalla, but they didn´t insist on getting there sooner than necessary.

    Oh yes, I absolutely agree with you.
