  1. Guess I'm going to have to start watching this series, You and a couple of others keep saying how good it is.

  2. Vikings really is a good program. The History Channel went to great lengths to make it realistic, and the story line is very much aligned with actual historical events.

    There aren't many shows I watch on TV anymore but this is one I am looking forward to.

  3. well Harry, my supposedly good friend - THAT is just plain out mean! we have to wait for shows to get on Netflix and can you imagine a show that we would love more than Vikings??? for the love of all that is holy our favourite movie is The 13th Warrior and our favourite book is Eaters of The Dead. and there you are all high and mighty talking about season 3 of the Vikings when we haven't even seen the first season!!!!

    you do know that Norse tales and mythology from the early 900's speak of Vinland and Markland ( the land of meadows and the land of trees) and that my island, cape breton island, claims to be both of these places? if not, look it up. you will love this kind of history.you will also love to learn that the Mi'kmaq, the native aboriginals of my island (of the Algonquin family) tell many stories and sing many songs about the blonde giants who came here and married many Mi'kmaq wives. my island is steeped in amazing history about blonde giants marrying and interacting with the most peaceful people on the planet! it is an awesome history here on the island. one day i hope to tell the story as it has not yet been told!

    but anyway, back to bragging about season 3 - we haven't even seen season 1! but we are the poor 99% don't you know! bahahahahah!

    much love always from us to you and yours! your friend,

    1. Kymber, there isn't enough good program on Direct TV to really justify the expense, or I'd say get the show that way. I am sure it will come on Net Flix eventually.

      I've read a good bit of Norse history and enjoy it. I've read a couple of translations of some of the sagas and though it makes heavy going I found it enjoyable as well. When the Norse reached North America they had some run in's with the locals and called them "skraelings" which roughly translates to "worthless ones." I thought that was pretty funny.

      Vikings and The Americans are probably the only series I will still watch, although I'll watch Tyrant when it comes on again as well. Longmire didn't get renewed by A&E, though I hear a new season is appearing on netflix, but I don't get netflix. The Bridge was cancelled and Hell on Wheels just wasn't very good and I quit watching.

      I hope all is well up there. It's warm here today and I am about to go for a walk to the waterfall with the dogs.

    1. Be sure you start with season one, Rob. It wouldn't make a lot of sense without following it chronologically.

  5. I guess I would need to see the first two seasons first.

    1. That would be my recommendation, Lisa. It is a very complex story and if you don't get to see it laid out step by step a lot of it would not be easy to follow. It's also definitely not a show for children.

  6. I KNOW! I can't wait ! With King Ragnar it should be another awesome season. However, I don't know how they could ever top last seasons finale..I still have it on the DVR and go back and watch it from time to time...

    2. My wife tapes so many shows from QVC that I can't record series, or I'd go back and watch some of them too.

      I look forward to a new season. There's so little on tv now that is worth watching, it makes a good show all the more entertaining.

  7. I am hoping we can see it. We don't have cable or satellite so we stream on our Roku which has the history channel. You can only get to certain things but last year we could see it.

    1. I don't know much about the Roku thing although I have heard of it. But if you could watch it last year, I'm sure you will be able to do so this year. History Channel makes money off the advertising so the more viewers, the more they can charge advertisers.

  8. With no cable, satellite, or netflix, I feel kinda left out. ;)

    1. Well, I am hoping that at some point History Channel will stream the shows for free on their web page, because it's a great series and everybody ought to be able to watch it.
