    Ragnar Lothbrok continues to rise in fame and stature. Strained relationships with his brother Rollo, son Bjorn and wife Lagertha are addressed in season 2. The driving force in this must watch series is the performance of Ragnar by actor Travis Fimmel. He's just fantastic. You can't take your eyes off his character. You must watch Season 2 for one particular episode, "Blood Eagle" In this episode the Viking we all love to hate, Jarl Borg (played by Thorbjorn Harr), finally "gets what's coming to him." And boy does he! This episode isn't for those with a weak stomach but man is it good. The dirge-like music, Harr's riveting performance and Fimmel's focus on revenge and justice will keep this one on your mind for a long time.

    Season two is even better

    I jumped on the Vikings bandwagon right before season two came out. I bought season one (awesome) and binge watched it over a weekend. I was going to watch season two as they came out, but life happens and I missed the first few episodes so I waited for it on BluRay. Once I started watching season 2, I couldn't stop. Another binge session and now waiting for season 3. I'll rewatch it again a few times before season three, because, well it's a great series. The only thing that could make it better, would be if it were on HBO or Showtime instead (go watch Game of Thrones or Sparticus and you'll understand why I say this), although Vikings is one you can watch with your kids...for the most part.

    Vikings is a period scripted drama set in medieval Europe that follows the Vikings as they leave their home for raids on England and political conflict at home. Wonderful scripts and good character development allows for a well rounded viewing experience. The show itself is a stark contrast to the usual fare available on TV today of vampires, weekly solve the crime police drama and the utter waste land of TV the genre known simply as "Reality TV". If you liked shows such as The Tudors, Reign and the White Queen to name only a few then you will likely be pleasantly surprised and captivated by the offer of "The Vikings". Be sure to view both seasons of the show.

    Co-produced by The History Channel & The Discovery Channel, this series shows how the Vikings lived, loved, pillaged, and fought! Is it bloody? Yes, very much so. Does it portray the real life of a Viking? Indeed it does. Showing true, historic aspects of everyday life including religious rituals, mores, and death, that gives the viewer an insight into the most feared (at that time) and unholy plunderers ever to sail the seas! p.s. No horns on their helmets! This is an historically accurate portrayal, not Hollywood's version of that era!

    WHERE IS THE SLIPCOVER?

    Although the show is very GOOD I am wondering where the slipcover is. I own over 1000 blue ray's and am very precise about the packaging. I have purchases movies from CANADA, EUROPE, and JAPAN as well as the US. The picture showed the slipcover and I was very excited about receiving it. But I have also learned nothing is written in stone, and the show still looks GREAT, so in retrospect this is a minor flaw. I look forward to doing business with your company for years to come. THANKS!

    Interesting story based on actual historical characters. Getting a glimpse into what life might have been like for the people of that area and time caused me to do a little research into those times and sure enough, many of these characters appear to have actually existed. The History Channel has done a great job of bringing these times to television with spectacular locations and great photography. I am really looking forward to Season 3.

    The second season is even better as we continue the upward climb of Ragnar in the hierarchy of this Viking tribe. History Channel has spared no expense for the costumes and locations. The writing is superb with some sense of medieval history and religion included as well the fun dialogue. There are certain themes to each story that build to an even greater end point so you just can't stop watching this show.

    I had watched 1st season on air and was excited to pick up the second season on Dvd. The writing for this series is first off first rate. The episodes are good and build on each other. It takes you in completely different directions and always keeps the watchers interested! Cant wait for season 3! Go ahead if you liked season 1 and buy this set. You will not be disappointed, promise!
