If you’re not watching History Channel’s Vikings then you deserve a batman slap. If you started watching it but didn’t care for it then perhaps you deserve an eagle on your back. Fans of the show will know what I mean.
Vikings blends two of my favorite genres, historical fiction, and fantasy, although the elements of fantasy are very subtle.
Really this is on Hulu now so there’s no excuse. Who doesn’t want to watch a bunch of dirty haired wild barbarians? It helps that a couple of them aren’t too bad looking. And I’ll admit to a teeny tiny girl crush on Legartha. Oh hell, who am I kidding? I want to do dirty nasty lesbian things to her. And I say this as a woman who is straight 98.9% of the time. She’s just that bad ass.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but I will tell you the end of season two took me by surprise and made me change my mind about several characters.
Just watch it, you fools.
