Zero Hour, Vikings, The Bible - TV Reviews
HIST's VIKINGS - The most promising aspect of this show is that it has Gabriel Byrne as an aging chief trying to keep his power. The rest of it is fairly generic, striving to be a Scandinavian Game of Thrones where any schemes are announced out loud in front of everyone. I'll record a second episode, but it needs to improve.
HIST's THE BIBLE - Straightforward sword-and-sandals take on the highlights of the Bible. in the first hour we start with Noah, but he decides to tell the family the story of Genesis, at least all the chapters that lead up to him. We see Adam rise from the dirt, Cain crush Abel's skull, bada bing, bada boom, Noah gets on dry land, and then we jump to Abraham and Lot.
