That was a good summation, Vit.
I too have a problem with phony accents. And not just in the Vikings series. Every time I am watching something where the accent just isn't quite right I think two words, Sean Connery That actor's accent doesn't change no matter what character he is playing Probably why the storyline always tries to work in a Welsh or Scottish background. That was tough to do in Crimson Tide though
But yeah, they are too Bristish sounding, but no worse that Sean Connery playing a Russian submarine captain.

It is bloody, but it's not gratuitous blood anyway. That's probably why it's on so late. At least by my EST standards. The detail in the graphics though isn't just the show of blood, it's what I would call impact blood, or moving blood. I can imagine that would put a lot of people off due to its realism.

I'll say it's certainly a step out of their box for The History Channel, but you can only show so many repeats of MonsterQuest and Pawn Stars

Relaxing day today, Ads, I have some ironing to do

We will also be going out for a walk and maybe watching some movies this afternoon
Kylie, have you and Steve ever been to a museum for the history of Australia. I am a history nut and the history of your country is so diverse and interesting. You would be surprised at how many events in your country parallel ours. Ex. A gold rush. Land rush, settliing the land with pioneers of sort, etc.

Watch a rerun of Murder She Wrote. It is hilarious listening to the actors trying to do a Maine accent.

Aside from Mass, I don't think I'd know one NE state from another.
I just don't get up that way to know.

Right. Just one of the recent reasons to be embarrassed to live in Colorado.

I forgot to quote for the last post. It was the comment about grass being legal in colorado that I should have quoted. Sorry about that.

Didn't get to shoot because we were invited to a cook-out. We are still looking for ammo. Maybe next week.

It's easy to tell them apart. Maine is the biggest one up top. Vermont and New Hampshire are the vertical ones. Massachusetts is the horizontal one. Connecticut and Rhode Island are the bits on the bottom of New England.

They all talk funny except for us in Massachusetts.

right after reading your blueberry story with its sheryl crow description, tin, i confess to going straight to youtube for a feelgood party of rockin' out with sheryl crow and her free-wheeling 90s west coast music. whenever i listen to sheryl, i get this happy sensation of something very good about to happen....
at the risk of having already incurred your disfavor for my indiscretions past or present, let me just push right on past, tin.

i for one, would love to see this blood-curdling red fence of yours, tin. have you got a picture you could share? as they say, good fences make good
neighbors....
