Was curious if anyone has been watching the Vikings series on the History Channel? I watched the first couple of episodes but it just didn’t hook me. The characters were not all that interesting to me. Maybe it gets better and I should go back and give it another chance, but for me, a show or book really has to grip me from the beginning for me to invest the time in it. Years back I would have finished a book once I started it, but I’ve somewhat changed my philosophy on that. There is too much stuff competing for my attention these days to invest time in something that is frankly not all that interesting.
I did feel the show from the episodes I watched had an authentic feel to it in terms of its setting: houses, clothes, cultural mindset, etc. It was really the characters that failed to interest me. Thoughts anyone?
