Episode Summary

EDIT

It is 793 AD and Viking warrior Ragnar Lothbrok wants to go to the West in search of riches, rather than following the old tradition of raiding the East. However, getting the permission of Head Man, Earl Haraldson, is not going to be easy.

    Look at my title, then come back here. That was the biggest BS I have ever heard. Bjorn clearly had brown eyes! Some things bother me about the pilot, naturally as with most pilots. They are in Scandinavia yet they do not speak the language and when they do it sounds like some sort of gibberish (I should know, I live there). Having broken accents does not make it okay that you speak English in a country where apparently you've never sailed west to actually encounter a English speaking country. That last one almost bothered me as much as the comment concerning the eyes. If I am to look at the episode at a whole I thought it was good enough for me to proceed with the season but with minor nuisances!moreless

    Rites of Passage was a spectacular beginning to Vikings. The visuals effects and backgrounds were amazing and beautiful. The characters are awesome and played by great actors. I like the stor even if not 100% accurate. I like how Ragnar sees the world, and perhaps his Gods. The action scenes were explosive and not as gory as I expected. The drama intensified as the episode progressed. This world has captured me and I can't wait to see more!!!!!!!!!
