It's nice to have some quiet down time. I'm all caught up on Lilyhammer and so now I'm watching a different TV series, the History Channel's Vikings. The story, soon to start its second season, follows the life of Ragnar Lothbruk, a viking farmer and warrior who becomes an explorer leading raids across the ocean to the west. It is also the story of his family and friends and what happens to their culture as it comes into contact with new civilations across the sea.
It is a violent program that shows how short and brutal life was in these times. I've been fascinated by this excellent production and highly recommend it.
