The Vikings

I have always wanted to watch a tv series from start to finish with C. Sure, we watch a lot of movies together. But there is something about watching a tv series– the anticapation of what will happen in the next episode, discussing what we liked about it, and to have that time everyday where we can bond over a common interest. In an ideal world I would like to replace the tv series with a book, but for now this will do.

I always thought I would pick the show and it would probably be a series I have watched and loved, and want to share with him– ‘The Office’, maybe, or even ‘Frasier’. We watched a few episodes of ‘Parks and Recreation’ and ‘The Office’ but it wasn’t the right fit for us as a couple. Though, I can binge watch the shows by myself.

Well, a few of days ago C suggested watching ‘Vikings’. I had heard of it but had never watched it.  He took it upon himself to download the first two seasons and we are nearly done with watching the first season already. The show appeals to my love of history, though the accuracy of the show can be questioned. Moreover, it is entertaining and the characters interesting. There is quite a bit of death and sex, along with adventure, which keeps you quite hooked. Not to mention the lead actor who plays Ragnor Lothbrok, the legendary Norse hero, is a looker.

I am enjoying watching the tv series with my other half. Maybe this will become a habit. Fingers crossed!
