On History channel two new series, "Vikings" and "The Bible", will premier tonight! After History Channel's first forte into scripted TV with "Hatfields and McCoys", they have made two more TV series that will hopefully meet my high expectations. Here are the trailers and my thoughts on the two new series below.
"Vikings" is History Channel's first on going fictional series and it appears that it will be great. A good TV series or film based on the Viking culture should have been made much sooner, but I am glad it is finally here. While this particular trailer does not really show much, the other TV spots look good.
The Bible, the ten part min-series obviously chronicling the historical events of the Bible. While there have been movies and TV specials about certain parts of the Bible, there has yet to be a big budget attempt to make so of the Lord's Word on film. Despite how great the trailers look, my greatest fear is that the series might not be 100% accurate to history, which would be disastrous.
Do you plan to watch either series? What are your thoughts on them? Please comment below.
