I caught a bit of it the other day. Not bad...but if it gets anywhere in the ratings...I'll be shocked.

It is almost too close to Game of Thrones...you know, without all the good stuff and Dinklage.

4.5 million viewers, not bad for a cable series. On par with Game of thrones ratings.

I've liked the first five episodes. The relationship between Ragnar and Athelstan is compelling to me.


"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

It's pretty darn good..  The song that accompanies the opening sequence has me humming gutterly for hours, after words..  :)

 

I thought the resoloution between Ragnar and the Chieftan was a bit anticlimactic and Deus Ex Machina..  But the cinematography is top shelf, the scenery is breath-taking, and the acting is not too bad at all!  I'm surprised there hasn't been more comments on this show.
