Of the series that have had the most impact in recent years, Vikings holds an important place in the hearts of spectators and has taken with it many works, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. But do you know this other series?
An alternative to Vikings?
Started in 2013, the series Vikings seduced thanks to its inhabited actors and its formidable production. Spectators were captivated by the adventures of Ragnar Lodbrok and his sons, Hvitserk, Björn, Ivar and Ubbe. The smoothly executed plot offers epic moments and important twists and turns, between historical frescoes, fantastic events and screenwriting freedoms. The success of this saga was a catalyst for bringing the Vikings back into fashion and we then saw documentaries on Nordic warriors and their beliefs flourish. It is obvious that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla took advantage of this popular craze. Conversely, Vikings Valhalla had a lot of difficulty convincing. Therefore, it is not always easy to find an interesting alternative. Unless…
A barbaric series?
In Germany, a historical series has appeared and it is perhaps not known, hence the interest in presenting it to you. Entitled Barbarians, it relates the battle of Teutoburg between the Germans and the Roman army. With a certain budget and excellent actors, this series takes place in the year 9 and sees the Emperor Augustus nourishing his desires for expansion. The story goes further as the Germanic tribes are also enemies. We follow the adventures of Arminius, the son of a German king who was educated in Rome and who decided to set a trap for the Romans. Much shorter than Vikings, Barbarians is made up of two seasons of 6 episodes each. The second season seemed less convincing than the first, but a third is already in preparation. If you liked Vikings and the world of Nordic warriors, this Barbarians series could well extend your pleasure, even if it focuses on other peoples. For information, on a site like Rotten Tomatoes which is renowned for its demands, the series peaks at 86%. So why deprive yourself ?
