    Vikings

    Good series on the History Channel; based on characters and events from The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. Same Ragnar as the one played by Ernest Borgnine in the 1958 film The Vikings.

    I've tried watching it a few times, but got in trouble because the kiddos were in the room. I then DVR'd it, and tried watching it after the kiddos were in bed. I finally gave up because it was too graphic for my wife. The story line seems pretty interesting though.

    It looked interesting though.

    Yes it was. If the series stays true to the narrative of The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, it shouldn't end until Ragnar dies in the pit of snakes and his sons take vengence on Aella by conquering the Kingdom of Northumbria. We must wait until next year to find out.

    I'm sorry. I thought everyone was familiar with The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle.

    It was pretty crappy about the whole brother thing, although the fighting was great.

    The part when his kid had to chose was pretty sad though.
