    I think that’s Photoshop. But let’s just pretend it isn’t. In fact, let’s pretend all the actors went on strike in front of George’s house’s at two in the morning wearing those shirts and chanting, “No more deaths! Except for Joffrey! No more deaths! Except for-”

    Sorry….been playing Skyrim a little too much again lately….

  • Ashe

    There’s such thing as too much Skyrim?

  • Alice Ruppert

    Is Vikings really awesome and should I start watching it?

  • Moriah Davis

    I haven’t watched the whole season, just the first few eps, but it’s really good! Being from the History Channel, you do kind of find yourself learning things on top of being entertained.

  • Vian Lawson

    Not so far …

  • Lapin

    Every time I watch Vikings, I just keep thinking about how I would gladly marry either Lagertha or Ragnar. (Hot vikings! Who are great with swords! Swoon.) I love the show, and that poster is awesome.

    Er, it’s not always reliable, though. But I agree, generally it gets things better than most viking portrayals. Just don’t take their view of Uppsala as gospel :) Medievalists.net actually did really good run-throughs of each episode, they can be found here if you go back a few pages: http://www.medievalists.net/category/tv-shows/

    Lagertha!! Oh, kickass Viking queen of awesome badasses, I’ve missed you. :D You are the reason I’m so excited for Vikings S2 (well, you and Athelstan being bros. Ragnar lost a lotta points in my book near the end of S1).

  • Hannah Elspeth

    It’s okay! It starts off very well, and Lagertha is fantastic. I didn’t like the end of the first series but looking at the mythology it very much seems like Lagertha will continue to be awesome!

    I should really take another run at Vikings. But. Gah. The dumbass Jarl. And their dumbass geography. >_<

    I hear ya. Who in the hell wants the weak-ass daughter of a Viking badass, one so weak-ass she has to have bodyguards, instead of the Viking badass you married? You sure as hell don’t see Lagertha with bodyguards.

    I get that they are following history, but dude! Such a dumbass! And Rollo. I can’t wait for him to get his comeuppance.

    Yes. It’s low rent Game of Thrones-esque, but they do a good job! Lagertha is awesome. And there are other women just as compelling, but they don’t all fall under the “shield maiden who can kick your ass” category, like the Jarl’s wife Siggy.

    But seriously, when Lagertha was told by Ragnar that she couldn’t go on their first trip to England, her response was to ambush his ass to remind him who saved HIS life.

    Oooh, and more Floki. Never enough of that crazy awesome shipbuilder.

  • Julianna Condor

    His comeuppance where he goes to Normandy, kills a bunch of guys, and ends up being the ancestor of William the Conqueror? :P

  • http://www.aeryllou.tumblr.com/ Aeryl

    Not the same Rollo. Ragnar’s brother is fictional, the Rollo that allegedly founded Normandy is a different guy, though the show has hinted, with his “baptism” that he could be that guy, I don’t buy it with how they set up the end of last season. Unless Rollo is again playing the long con on Ragnar’s behalf, but I don’t think so this time.

    That Lagertha poster is giving me life. Especially so after looking at all the X-Men: Days of Men Future and Men Past In Mostly Terrible Outfits.

    The show is good, as long as you don’t mind the random priest having infinite plot armor. It’s worth watching in GoT off season time and the female characters are way above GoT.
