One old, one new.
The old show is new to me. I’ve never watched it before, but i’m loving it. The Shield. Great series… good writing, good twists, good actors and characters.
The main character, Vic Mackey, is one of the most interesting characters on any TV shows. A Bad Guy that does good things for good reasons some times… and does bad things for good reasons some times… and every once in a while does a good thing for bad reasons. But you end up rooting for him.
The whole series is on Hulu Plus. This makes Hulu Plus well worth it to me.
The new show is VIKINGS. A Semi-Historical drama that is pretty accurate in some things. Cool characters, and a smoking hot Shield Maiden that is worth watching just for her. Rower. Overall, I find the show extremely compelling. Even if it’s much like Sons of Anarchy on Long Boats. You could call it Sons of Vikings. But that’s not quite fair. This show is unique. And very well done. I enjoy it a lot.
You Armchair Historians can stuff it about historical inaccuracies… it’s the best we’ve seen so far, eh?
