    Probably has as much to do with real history as an Indiana Jones movie.

    DONT CARE .Sure beats 98 percent of the stupidity on tv lately.Watched a duster on tv a while ago about 1840,s Texas and the guys were using Winchesters and colt single actions,not much historical fact there either.Sad part was, it really wasn't to bad a movie except for that glaring booboo.You could say it along the lines of Vikings TOM,which plays fast and loose with historical fact also but is still fairly enjoyable.

    My beef is with the History Channel. I can enjoy fiction about Medieval times, as long as none of the characters use those idiotic back scabbards, especially two of them.

    That Vikings show lost me on the first episode, when the Northmen didn't know of the existence of the British Isles. I never watched it again.

    Looks like a second thread on this TV series. Another started on Dec 7...has about same number of posts.

    Members giving it some time before they chime in. Too early to tell...yet.

    I worry all the sub plots will kill it as the main intent often gets lost in the mix.
