Vik­ings

Isis Town and Country - - TELEVISION -

Mon­day, SBS One, 8.35pm

It is al­most im­pos­si­ble to match the grand scales and magic of world­wide phe­nom­e­non Game of Thrones, but this im­pres­sive Cana­dian/French drama can stand proudly with its sword in the air. With only a frac­tion of the budget of GOT, Vik­ings has cre­ated a scin­til­lat­ing and ad­dic­tive drama that basks in its stun­ning Ir­ish and Nor­we­gian back­drops. And there’s no need to pay for this ad­dic­tive cos­tume drama, folks. Tonight, Rag­nar (rugged Aussie Travis Fim­mel, above with Kath­eryn Win­nick) and King Horik (Donal Logue) don’t ex­actly see eye to eye on how to dis­pense jus­tice to Jarl Borg (Thor­b­jørn Harr).
