Addicted: Vikings on History Channel

When I reach a writing milestone (like finishing a draft or rewriting half a book), I like to reward myself with some form of entertainment that is bound to be utterly addictive and soul-consuming. Sometimes, feeding my addiction comes in the form of a fantastic book (or more likely, a whole series of books). But other times, it's good 'ole TV.

This week, as I drew closer to finishing my latest round of revisions, I rewarded myself with VIKINGS, a dark, gritty new series from The History Channel. And oh, my, am I so pleasantly and thoroughly addicted. The production value on this show is so incredibly high that I feel like I'm there. I can almost smell these people, and their food, and I'm utterly fascinated with the strange ways they talk and eat and sleep . . . it's so wonderful to experience this brand new world. If you haven't yet, you should check it out.

And did I mention the FABULOUS HAIR? I mean, just LOOK at that!


  1. Oooh I wanted to see this and missed it. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. You need to meet my husband -- he is similarly addicted. I went out the other night and he would barely talk to me when I came home because he was in the middle of his second (or third?) episode of the night.

    1. I was wearing headphones, so I didn't even hear my hubby come in. :)

  3. I've seen commercials but I can only hope for reruns or something.

    1. I totally forgot to mention that the first episodes are available online at!

  4. Very descriptive post, I enjoyed that a lot. Will there
    be a part 2?

    super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, Ι'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
