Now That's a Creative Name for a Show: "Vikings" Trailer

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | January 28, 2013 | Comments ()

So guess what "Vikings" is about? Well, it's neither focusing on Ralph Wiggum's dream life, nor the tragic story of Minnesota football, instead it's focusing on actual Vikings. Here's the first trailer:

I'm as down with hyperbole as the next guy, but I'm getting tired of trailers intoning that something will change everything. If things changed everything as much as people claim, soon enough we'd run out of permutations for it to change to, and the next big thing would just reset everything to a previous state.

What makes me more excited about the show is simply reading the Wikipedia page for Ragnar Lodbrok, who is the main character of the television show. Seriously, read it. His last name means "Hairy Breeches" on account of the special pants he wore for killing snakes.

"Vikings" airs on March 3.
