The ancient warrior genre that includes "Game of Thrones," "Merlin" and "Spartacus: War of the Damned" will get a little more crowded this winter/spring TV season: Make some room for the "Vikings." History premieres its first scripted series at 9 p.m. CT March 3. It tells the story of the 8th century traders, explorers and warriors through the eyes of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), an adventurous farmer and family man who is frustrated by his local chieftain, Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byrne), who continues to send his raiders east to the poor Baltic states and Russia instead of west to new, unchartered lands. Will you be tuning in to "Vikings?" Curt Wagner, RedEye's Show Patrol Want more? Discuss this article and others on Show Patrol's Facebook page.
