We don't often cover TV series on site, i would suppose the only reason being that having to cover them well you need to view all the episodes in a short period as opposed to tuning in to your favorite station each week . Also buying and importing DVD series from the east can be pricey and not all are subtitled.
But even though we do have one series on the go to cover it does not mean we can not cover a series closer to home.
I recently viewed the entire first season of ''VIKINGS'' on Lovefilm and found it a enjoyable escapade. Filmed for most part in Southern Ireland it followed the legend of famous viking Ragnar Lodbrok who was famous for wreaking havoc in England in the ninth century.
A series which had a fair amount of action which was well put together. And your also be pleased to know the series is released on DVD and Bluray as of February 3rd 2014 on region 2.
Which is just in time for the second season which premieres on February 27th 2014.
