Vikings on the History Channel

Was curious if anyone has been watching theĀ 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?

My life has been pretty simple. I grew up in Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's in Advertising. I have spent about the last ten years in web development. In 1998, a friend of mine and I started a web design company we ran for three or four years before deciding to close it due to the demands of school. Since then, I stayed in the web working with various companies in Alabama. I worked for a brief period with Southern Progress, namely with Southern Living magazine and Health magazine, in their web departments. While there, I also wrote for Southern Living magazine,, and the company's internal newsletter. I write as much as I can. For the last five years, I have been working on my first novel. I am on the third revision now and hope to be finished with this draft by the end of the year. I also write short fiction, though not as frequently as I used to due to the time I spend on the novel. My goal is to have my novel published in the next three years. Other interests include: History (particularly medieval and ancient civlizations), Reading, Foreign Language (I currently speak Spanish but plan to learn as many as I can), Landscape Photography, the outdoors, sports (especially college football), and Travel.
