Once once more, no. The start line of “Vikings” was a younger farmer, who was fortunately married, with kids, however who was pissed off by his lack of alternative to sail and discover lands to the west of Scandinavia. That’s after we first meet him. And quickly, his ambitions start to play out – however they bring about with them inevitable and generally horrible penalties.
He fought his boss, the Earl, he secretly commissioned the constructing of a brand new technology Viking ship, he began touring overseas to big-up his profile and discover backers for his initiatives. Doesn’t that sound so very modern? I all the time considered Ragnar as a moderately modern determine. But in fact, his rise created casualties – together with his first marriage.
I couldn’t have spent extra time with Ragnar and Lagertha as a result of, even on the level the story started, their home and rural idyll was over! It’s common to start out a drama collection at a tipping level, and that’s what I did. The world was about to alter, and Ragnar and Lagertha modified with it.
