The Vikings show on History Channel has been excellent. I would highly, highly recommend it. Start at the beginning. This disc is the first half of the 4th season because History split the season into two halves separated by months, which is annoying. The show still is good, has intrigue, lighting, well made but starting to show its age in that some stories are played out yet they keep going back to them. What made the previous seasons so good was that whole new story lines or locations would come about, but they are stuck on some of the characters and stories now, and they really need to move onto some new people/stories/adventures. This seasons is still good, and I recommend watching it, but if they intend to go to a fifth season, they need some new material. The DVD disc works fine, and picture looks very good for DVD. Very convenient format for watching on your time, and unlike digital copies, you can lend it to your friends when you are done to get them into the show. That is how I got into it - a friend was praising it and lent me the first season on DVD, and I was hooked.
