On 5th April the year 2013, History Channel renewed Vikings TV show for a ten episode 2nd season, that premiered on 27th February of the year 2014. On 25th March of 2014, History Channel renewed Vikings TV show for a ten episode 3rd season, that premiered on 19th February, 2015.

 
The TV show is inspired by tales of raiding, trading, and the exploration of the Norsemen in early medieval Scandinavia. The show follows exploits of Viking chieftain Lothbrok, as notably put down in 13th century saga Ragnars Lothbrókar & Ragnarssona láttr, and also in Saxo Grammaticus 12th century works, Gesta Danorum.

 

 

Norsemen’s legendary sagas were all partially fictional tales that were based in the Norse’s oral tradition, which was written down around 200-400 years after events they describe. More inspiration is derived from various historical sources during that period, like records of Viking raids on Lindisfarne which are depicted in the TV show’s 2nd episode, and Ahmad Fadlan’s 10th century accounts of Volga Vikings. The TV show is set at start of the Vikings Age, which was marked by Lindisfarne raid in the year 793.

 

The Tv show received generally favorable ratings by many critics after its’ 1st episode aired, with the average rating of 71% according to the Metacritic. Alan Sepinwall of the HitFix praised the Tv show’s casting, notably, Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok, and he observed that the show “is not complicated.

 

It relies on inherent appeal of vikings past era and the series characters so as to drive the main story.” Nancy DeWolf of Wall Street Journal also noted the natural & authentic settings and costumes, and she appreciated that the Tv show was (unlike, for example, Spartacus) not just a celebration of violence and sex, but its’ “a study of stamina, character, power and of emotional, social, and intellectual awakening.”

My New Weber Genesis Grill

I recently bought a new grill, and all things considered, I’m pretty happy with it. I bought the Weber Genesis 6531001 E-330 Liquid Propane Gas Grill, and it’s definitely a good improvement over the old Weber grills I’ve used in the past. It’s fairly efficient and offers a few useful features, including front mounted knobs as well as its very own side burner. However, the rotisserie attachment is my favorite, and I’ve used it about a dozen times already for cooking chicken.

I also like the fact that the Weber Genesis cooks fast. I’ve managed to cook a couple of prime strips in less than 10 minutes, which is certainly faster than my previous grills. Also, the oven has more than enough power for even the most demanding barbecues. The rotisserie is also quite versatile, and I’ve decided to experiment with it a bit using duck and small turkey. I’ve had a hard time figuring out how the thing works at first, but once you do, it’s very easy to use.

 

 

Of course, like most Grills, the Weber Genesis also has a few flaws. For me, one of these flaws were the controls. I had a hard time figuring out how they worked, particularly the igniter, which seems rather different to the igniters on the other grills I’ve used in the past.

 
Another problem I’ve had with my Weber Genesis is that it seems a little fragile. Of course, this is just my impression, but I get the feeling that it isn’t as tough or as durable as the other grills I’ve used in the past. I think it has to do with the overall design, so I always put a cover on it whenever I’m not using it.

 

All in all, I’m satisfied with this grill. It works great and the rotisserie is probably the best I’ve ever used.

 

Another Day At Work

Another day at work. I am here again. In this same office where I constantly take in custody and divorce paperwork. The biweekly paycheck is okay, but sometimes I wonder if it is really worth it.

 

Is it really worth the tears of the mothers and fathers that come in weeping while handing over their custody paperwork? Is it really worth the screams of the wives and husbands that come in to file divorce paperwork, most of whom just found their spouse cheating on them.

 
Days like today are even more rough because I have to sit in protection from abuse court. Here, the greatest drama television show comes to life. Women come to court with their new boyfriend to put a restraining order against their old boyfriend. Fistfights happen right in front of everyone, and lawyers do their best to make deals and get out of the courtroom.

 
When I get back to the office, I will have to mail out paperwork to parents indicating they have lost their parental rights. Mailing is the easy part. The hard part is reading about the terrible lives children live on a daily basis.

 

Some children were abused physically and sexually, others were left on doorsteps of strangers, and others were left on the doorstep of the courthouse. Many people wish the work day would go fast, but I wish it would go slow.

 

If the day went slow, people would not quickly file their divorce paperwork or give up their children. People would have more time to think over their daily decisions.

 
This is another work day for me. All I can which is for tomorrow to be more peaceful than the last day, and hopefully the sun will shine in the midst of all the clouds. Let their be peace on earth every day of the week.
