i am the only one
Though it was definitely graphically gory at times, I liked this Series.
It has a lot of good things. Great Writing, Characters, Dialogue, Action …
It was an all around high quality production.
So I watched it the first 4 seasons.
Until they killed off this guy:
It’s unquestioned STAR.
Vikings creator and writer Michael Hirst said that Fimmel
was supposed to be knocked off at the end of Season One,
but he was popular that he wrote him back in for three more seasons.
Did you ever hear my lecture on
NEVER CREATED. ONLY DISCOVERED.
There’s no formula.
If you find it, exploit it.
Star Power turns crap into Gold.
Don’t throw it away.
This means the Vikings might well have died after Season One
if they had killed Fimmel off at that time.
But after Season Four they wanted to do something different.
They figured the other Stars could carry the axe.
OK Floki … Loki? …. ??
The Last Kingdom
You’re our last hope Alexander.
So what do we really know about the Vikings???
Well … we figure they didn’t really wear horns on their helmets.
Other than that we know as much about them as we do
about the Mayans. Next to nothing.
As this video shows.
My personal question is:
How did a relatively small group of people defeat
army after army, country after country
and could have conquered all of Europe if they’d wanted to?
What superior warfare tactics/strategies did they know
that made them so formidable?
