TV Picks: Tune in to Thorsday for a new “Vikings”!
Vikings on History is based on actual history. It focuses on Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), who is driven and on a journey of discovery. He began this series as a farmer under a jaded earl – now deposed and deceased – whose interest in exploring and a bit of pillaging has created a role of leadership in his village of Kattegat. Season 3 begins, and our Ragnar is a king.
The series is also a family’s story whose characters include one of the toughest women since Gemma (Sons of Anarchy) or Cookie (Empire), Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick). She was Ragnar’s wife when the show began; now replaced by Aslaug, she’s an earl yet part of the raiding team that sets out to England to claim farm land. But do not doubt that there is still love there!
