Just came across this, 3 seasons on Netflix. Anyone watch it? Think I'm gonna start it this weekend. 8 episodes each.

I've not heard of this. Looks interesting. If I had nothing else to watch I'd probably check this out, but I've got plenty to keep me busy at the moment.

Did that show get any better? I watched the first season but forgot all about it.

Almost finished season 1. This show is enjoyable.

Far better writing than the more recent Viking seasons.

Show is pretty amazing. Its one of the few that I legitimately care about the characters. Every battle, my heart races and there is a sense of panic at the chance one of them will fall (and believe me, some have already).

That speaks volumes.

And season 3 complete. No word on whether we get a season 4 (tho rumors say 4 and 5 are coming - based on the availability of the source material (books)).

This is far and away one of the best shows Ive ever watched. I dont think I can say I've ever been this committed to characters. There were times I legit shed a tear or two and was screaming at the tv for one reason or another. The writing and acting has been superb and the actions sequences (while not at GOT level) are awesome and heart pumping.

This show needs a 4th season...tho...if this was it, it was a satisfying ending, tying up current story lines.

I recommend this to ANYONE who wants a quality story filled with gripping characters and emotion.

When someone throws a head on your doorstep in the first 5 minutes you know you're in for a ride.
