Trivia

The soldiers of Wessex are wearing helmets of a period 700 years later than depicted in the story. These are burgonets of an Italian style, more at home in Renaissance Florence than England. Moreover, the kite shield was not introduced into England until c.1000, just before the Norman invasion. Other English troops are seen wearing padded leather jerkins of 1200/1300s, so are also completely out of period. The Swedes are seen wearing helmets used by Anglo-Saxons in the 8th century, not by Swedes. See more »

Goofs

Athelstan is often seen with a cloak held together by strings and wearing a pin on the coat. The purpose of this pin is actually to hold a cloak together so wearing it a coat with strings is superfluous. See more »

Quotes

Ragnar Lothbrok: So have you returned to your faith, renounced ours?
Athelstan: I wish it was so simple. In the gentle fall of rain from Heaven I hear my God. But in the thunder I still hear Thor. That is my agony.
Ragnar Lothbrok: I hope that some day our Gods can become friends.

Something a bit different and very enjoyable.
11 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There have been one or two negative reviews posted about this show and I have to say that after 2 episodes, I really like it... nit pickers may say that there are historical inaccuracies, but there are also many myths dispelled ... and with the appearance of Valkyrie on the battlefield at the very beginning of ep1 to take fallen warriors souls, unless you are deluded and believe in that being factual it was clear from the very outset that there was always going to be some dramatic license used. Others say the show is too Hollywood, this has to be the case to some extent but by no means is this another mass produced piece of garbage, unless you want the show cancelled after the pilot it must appeal to a mass American audience as entertainment it isn't a documentary. I personally feel that the show DOES have a European feel which is absent in many historical dramas, the locations are beautiful, the cast has been well selected and act their parts fantastically well. The good guys are instantly likable where as the bad guys you just can't wait to see them get whats coming to them, that is always a good sign as far as I am concerned as i want to see what happens to them and am looking forward to the next episode. So don't be put off by the pedantic armchair historians out there give vikings a chance.. it is what it is.
