Star of the show; Ragnar Lothbrok played by Aussie model/actor Travis Fimmel:
(I don't own copyright to these so will of course remove it if asked)
He looks much better as a fighting Northman than he ever did as a Calvin Klein underwear model if you ask me. Except when he's got the crazy bloodlust look in his eye;
(please don't hurt me)
And then there is his brother Rollo, played by Clive Standen;
(okay, I'm thinking a gentle spanking might be in order)
He's moody and broody and built. Probably a little smelly but you can't have everything.
Actually all of the Lothbroks are pretty attractive, like his wife Lagertha played by Katheryn Winnick:
She's pretty tough stuff too. You have to be to take on a fight like this one.
(Lots of blood on the beach in short order)
So if you don't mind grime and blood spatter, give the Vikings a try on the History Channel.
