Here's a hint: How the little piggies will grunt when they see how the old boar suffered . . . Ragnar! Ragnar! Ragnar!
You got it! VIKINGS! I am absolutely hooked. I love the costuming and the makeup, the wonderful acting and actors. The sets, too, are amazing. I really can't wait for each new season. I've watched it from the beginning and think it's one of the History channel's best series yet. I love anything historical, so this is right up my alley.
As to the plot, I know, be careful what you wish for and we did want his first wife Lagertha back in charge, but at what cost??!! And my favorite characters? Bjorn, Floki, and Lagerta...still miss Ragnar though!
They have depicted the Vikings very well, I think.
You know I love Game of Thrones. Dragons, mayhem, betrayal and revenge. What's not to love? Another historical slam dunk. How dare they EVER end this series? LOL! Everyone must die! Why? Why? Why?
Favorite characters? Daenerys and Drogon, and all the Starks, and then there's Tyrion, and...endless list, though they all keep dying, of course! LOL! I think this is the last season and I am so bummed about that! The settings are spectacular, the special effects, the costumes, the twisting scripts...wonderful stuff!
And then there's The Walking Dead. I USED to absolutely love this show until this season's opening and the unrelenting gore. If I wanted to read comic books, I would. Do I care if it's true to them and they're even more gruesome? No. I think they went too far. It has calmed down a bit from nonstop gore and killing off all the best "family" members, but no, it's just not as good any more, at least not to me. I almost stopped watching, in fact. We'll see.
On Demand and Netflix are wonderful binger tools and I admit to watching Salem, Colony, Zoo, Penny Dreadful, American Horror Story, Bates Motel, The Originals, Once Upon a Time and a Series of Unfortunate Events.
Do you notice a pattern here? It seems nothing ordinary or every day has any place in my viewing lineup. I apparently prefer horrific, diabolical, supernatural, and paranormal. How about you? What TV shows do you binge on?

Great shows! Did you see Rollo will have his own series on NBC in February? It's called Taken.

Like you, I love fantasy. In my post for the challenge I asked if you watch programs in the same genre as you write in.

I can't imagine not writing what I love! Paranormal and fantasy elements are in everything I write, even my horror.

You & my husband and Vikings. Too gritty for me. Wished I'd started watching Game of Thrones from the beginning. So many people talk about it. Enjoy your shows!
