Pirates and Vikings….Oh My!

A couple of blogs ago, I mentioned that I had really become a fan of the show, Black Sails, on STARZ which is about pirates.  I can’t believe that I only have three more episodes of this show to watch before the season ends and I have to wait a full year for the continuation.  Well, this past weekend, I found something new to watch in the interim.  As I was searching for something to watch while suffering from a nasty stomach virus, I came across Vikings on The History Channel.  I watched the entire ten episodes of the first season in one day!  I found this show just in time too as their new season starts this week!  Now, while Vikings doesn’t have the eye candy that Black Sails offers me in the glorious form of Captain Vane, I’m still enthralled by all that heathen behavior! Besides, Ragnar and Rollo are still pretty decent, just not up to Captain Vane’s stature…but I digress.

Now, I can say that I struggled more with some of the violent things that the Vikings did as opposed to the Pirates on Black Sails, and I’m trying to figure out why.  They are all murderers and rapists.  I assume that it is because Vikings is trying to remain true to their ways?  I mean after all, it is on The History Channel so they need to be more careful with accuracy, right?

Anyway, Vikings and Pirates were the main characters in many of the historical romance books that littered my youth, so I am enjoying them being on my television screen.  All that testosterone is invading my dreams!

Talk to you soon…..
