I saw an interview where he reckoned most of the cast and production crew know more about Nordic history than he does, apparently it's not taught much in Swedish schools.

    Edit: I've checked IMDB, and it's Norwegian, and apparently a parody of Vikings. Or there's as much humour as violence at any rate.
    I'll take a look at that.

    A lot of the cast of Vikings are Scandinavian - an increasing number it seems - but not so much of the main cast.

    I assume that Scandinavian school history focuses on the modern history of their countries in the same way ours does. We don't spend a lot of time on either pre-Columbian American civilizations or on European history pre-1500.

    Knightfall is proving to be lightweight stuff, very shallow characters. I am impressed by Tom Cullen in the lead role but the rest of the cast are phoning it in; the high number of Downton Abbey supporting actors being recycled through this is odd, suggesting that the head of casting didn't look very far.

    I heard that was weak. Shame.

    Iím going to try Outlander.

    The first season (or double season) of Outlander is sensational. But it drops off a cliff after that.

    The second season of High Maintenance started in the US on HBO last night. Amazing episode; it was like watching a very smart short film. I won't say more than that to avoid various spoilers.

    Enjoyed watching Sicario last night on Channel 4. Felt very much like an introduction to a franchise of movies, but del Toro's character had so much hidden depth I'd be happy to see a few sequels.

    Vikings seems to get even darker. I have just finished episode 7.

    I just found out that Burnistoun is on Netflix here, but I can't sit here and watch it all day or nothing will get done. I want a Radio Burnistoun t-shirt now.

    My wife and I have belatedly discovered Turn - Washington's Spies. Not bad at all in the writing and act; I'm less sure on plausibility.
