    Ooh, thanks.
    Is this an intelligent or unintelligent programme?
    I'm still watching it though.

    love this type of historical drama and liked this first episode, not jumped right in with all action just to try and impress you. Potential for a good story and characters to unfold in future episodes.

    On my weekly list for now anyway

    seems like starz spartacus done with vikings without the sex , nudity , vulfar language and over the top fights so far.


    First ep isn't to bad I'll give it a few more eps and see if it gets going

    I didn't enjoy it, perhaps I wasn't in the right mood.

    Just watched the first two episodes.

    Interesting premise, but considering what a bunch of *******s the vikings were, it's kind of hard to root for them.

    I remember when Iplayer first launched there was a drama series about vikings on their which I remember being almost the same as this but better as far as I remember

    I don't think it was entirely from the vikings perspective though like this seems to be

    my google skills fail me though and I cant find it, I'm not even sure if it was made by the bbc or not

    It wasn't bad but I didn't think it was great either. I will give it a couple of more episodes before deciding.

    That all said I remember watching the first episode of Game of Thrones and just thought to myself at the time BORING ! :p now it’s one of my fav series :)

    nearly everyone thought spartacus was crap as well, some shows just grow on you if you give them the chance

    It's worth a watch if your into history stuff

    It feels more like a docudrama without the narrative than a proper drama series though so far
