    I think the show is indeed entertaining But I'll add a slight slant on it. I do study Norse and other versions of Paganism. I am a pagan. I also having no problem saying a Christian prayer before a meals and saying Amen afterwards. I see it as if it is important to the prayergiver and others in attendance, I can show them respect for allowing me to join in their meal. I see the various beliefs as spokes on a wheel. We all start on the outside and find our own path to the center.
    The series does show the how's and why's of Norse mythos and lifestyles. Our memorial day and Veterans day celebrations harken back to norse beliefs of honoring those who have given their lives to fight for our country. The Days of the week are named after the Norse. Monday is moon day, Tuesday is Tewes day (Tewes is anglisized Name for Tyr), Wednesday is Woden's Day, Thursday is Thor's Day, Friday is Freya's day, Saturday is Saturn's day and Sunday is Sun's day.
    So once you understand Why the Norse believed as they did, you see their actions follow that belief. This last episode however did not paint Christianity is a good light.

    The wife watches every episode and what I catch is pretty good. The show has already been green lighted for a 2nd season.

    Peacemakr40 gives brings great perspective and historical knowledge but is agree that Christianity takes its fair share of shots in the name of cinimatic creativity. I respect all religions myself as I see an interconnection between them. The Pageans mocked the Preists, as anyone would if they were thrust into that time period when magic and mysticism were believed to be "real". I found the resolution to the boy born to the married couple who were unable to conceive very "progressive" for the time period. Don't know that it would have go e down that way but I thought it was a good example of control through the use of a belief system.

    Hump day is named for the lazy sloths who had nothing better to do that chat up their buddies why the real men worked and played with their Viking Women...thus humpday came to be known among the Christains as Good Friday or TGIF...or something like that.

    It doesn't paint paganism in a very good light either. Northumbria was eventually over run by the Viking and was known as Daneland until the Vikings were driven out by William the Conqueror who was from Normandy who were Vikings to begin with who spoke French.....oh, forget it. Enjoy the show. By the way, Northumbrian dialects are the core of modern English.

    This is the stuff I'm looking for! I once read or heard somewhere that the Vikings fathered so many children that most of us of European decent have some of that DNA. Any truth to that?
