Trivia

Gustaf Skarsgård assisted some of the other actors in the pronunciation of certain Scandinavian words. According to him the word the English speaking actors found most difficult was the name "Knut", which is often anglicized as "Canute" in history books and fiction. In Swedish and Norwegian Knut sounds like "Knuut". See more »

Goofs

Borg is portrayed as being seen as unstable by his peers for communicating and asking the skull of his dead wife for advise. But in pre-christian Scandinavia, there was an extensive cult of the dead and communicating with the dead and even interacting with them was common. Modern ethnic groups like the Torajan people still has such practices. There are even myths of Odin communicating with the head of his dead teacher, Mimir, so Borg's action would not have been seen a deviant behaviour by Norse pagans. See more »

Thanks, History Channel!
5 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

I've watched the two first episodes of the series and I can say that I'm POSITIVELY surprised.

I didn't know if this would be any good but I'm most certainly intrigued. It's well written, exciting and charming. The show is very enjoyable, especially if you're interested in Scandinavian/European history.

I love Norse Mythology and I am very happy that this show aired, I just hope it continues going in a good direction. :)

All in all I can't wait for the remaining episodes and if you're considering picking this show up I'd definitely recommend it.
