Vikings

Post by Billy's Little Trip » Fri Mar 15, 2013 12:13 pm

Now History is getting in on the show series action. They've done it before, but not with a show like Vikings.

I watched the first episode this week. Holy hell, it's pretty violent. It's like 300 without all the CG blood spatter. I wasn't expecting that from the History channel.
I couldn't help but notice how the characters seem scripted just like The Walking Dead cast. But I guess that is just standard story scripting.

I won't get into too much to avoid spoilers, but I have a feeling that a lot of people are going to be offended by this series. Thought?

I think if you are into homoeroticism, you should just watch some high quality gay porn and not pretend that you are interested in "historical drama".

Ha. Maybe they'll use that song on the show, literally.

Beginnings
Premiere Date:March 03, 2013 - 08:00-10:00PM

Noah endures God's wrath; Abraham reaches the Promised Land but still must prove his faith in God; Moses leads the Israelites out of Egypt, and his faith in God is rewarded when the Red Sea parts to allow the Israelites to escape Pharaoh's chariots; Moses delivers his final message from God–the Ten Commandments.

Homeland
Premiere Date:March 10, 2013 - 08:00-10:00PM
Joshua conquers Jericho; Delilah betrays Samson as the Israelites battle the Philistines; Samuel anoints David king, a move that could throw the nation into civil war; Saul is consumed with jealousy when David defeats Goliath; King David ushers in a golden age for Israel, but is soon seduced by power and lust for Bathsheba; God forgives David, and his son, Solomon, builds God's temple in Jerusalem.

Hope
Premiere Date:March 17, 2013 - 08:00-10:00PM

The Jews are enslaved in Babylon; Daniel is thrown into the lions' den, but when his faith endures and God spares him, the Jews are allowed to return to Jerusalem; the Angel Gabriel tells Mary she will bear a child; Joseph takes Mary to Bethlehem for the census, where Jesus is born; the Holy family escapes Herod's order to kill Bethlehem's male babies; Judea comes under the ruthless rule of Pilate; John baptizes Jesus, who is now ready to take on his mission–and his revolution.

Is this supposed to look like a giant spliff?

Yeah, The Bible. It comes on before Vikings. It's alright.

I didn't know there were drama programmes on History, are the important scenes like the red sea parting, Mary's chat with Gabriel, and David v Goliath entirely accurate to how they actually happened or do they add in a little bit of fiction to enhance the story?

Episode 1 of the new season yesterday. I don't know why, but I just love this show. It's as if for the first time in my life I can see the things I've read about and how evolution, other than christian beliefs, started and where they tie into our own history. If anyone isn't recording this show or planing on netflixing the series, you really should.

Speaking of vikings, I was just at Icon Grill for my cousin's 40th birthday party, and the bathroom here has Flight of the Valkyries playing on an endless loop. It makes peeing into an EPIC EXPERIENCE.

Now I know what I'll do if I ever wire up every room in my home with background audio.
