The History Channel is working on a scripted drama about Vikings, the network announced today. It's called Viking! Between this and the Braveheart show, the world's historical weaponry experts are having quite the day -- even though the History Channel insists in its press release that Viking's "imaginatively choreographed battles will emphasize individual points of view, strategies, and ruses rather than mindless, graphic slaughter." The show will be a "family saga" about Ragnar Lothbrok, an actual Viking warrior and king who lived during the mid-800s. A Viking drama called Viking about a Viking named Ragnar. These are magical times, friends.
