I would recommend reading the book by Brad Ferguson. (the shows creator)


I will have to look into that. Is the book titled "Vikings" or does it have a different name?


It is titled Vikings. I found a copy at my local library so maybe you can too.

And about the "crazy guy" references, shipbuilding was taken very seriously by the scandinavians. It was one of the staples of their way of life. The shipbuilders were almost like a tribal shaman because they were looked at as being more in tune with nature. They had to pick trees that had just the right bend at certain places to make the strongest ships. That way the wood fibers were naturally curved and did not have to be shaped and cut losing their strength. So it kinda makes sense that they portray Loki as a hermitized weirdo.

Just read that they are planning season 2 of the Vikings and that Colin Farrell may be in the cast. An acquaintance of mine was actually on the show, as an extra, filmed in Ireland.

Looks like I won't be watching the second season. What a shame, it was a good series.
