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.
