Liked the gore and the romance. Everything else was rather bad.

What do you think about the combat scenes?

Anyway, it inspired me to reinstall my mod for Baldur's Gate 2.

I don't know, but I actually thought it was half-good. You can watch it online. It's not all-good, but it's kind of in between reality and the usual hollywood shit. Kind of like say, HBO's Rome or Deadwood, only a little more low budget.

The first episode in particular had a lot of cool features I liked, a 'thing' (assembly), the use of a vesvigir(sp)or sun compass, the use of iceland spar to find the sun on a cloudy day, some details about Norse law related to murder, what looked like a reasonable portrayal of Norse religion, and reasonably accurate kit. No giant 15 lb axes or anything. And the casting is pretty good, it's got Gabriel Byrne.

It's not the best thing I've ever seen but it's probably the best thing that's been in History channel for a while. Beats the crap out of Ice Road Truckers anyway :)
