    "Let me just say this that Vikings would never be the new Game of Thrones although this has an interesting mix od drama and history and shows differences between the ancient pagans and warriors. Its plot is nothing radical eh. But the female lead Lagertha is superb that i am a fan of her already. P.s I admit i am somehow misogynist but Lagertha acts superior that i think i am having a crush on the fictional character hahaha"

    "Am an Elizabeth Moss fan so basically ive watched all of her movies and series. I did not expect though that this series will tackle a lot about feminism. Moss who portrays the character Robin who i love/hate sometimes because of her actions like for instance when she got raped but was unable to have a rape kit done although she is a detective. "

    "Sex and the city is highly regarded for all it that it is. However I was not a big fan of the show simply because I was not a big Sarah Jessica Parker fan. I'm a fan of all the other girls, but she was the lead so it was a step back for me. Lots of sex and some hot scenes were great for this show but as a Male in his late 30's this was not the show for me."

    "Amazing show that has so many strong narrative points that i think might happen in the future wherein fertile women might be forced into being pregnant for servitude. The characters here are incredible and depicted the right emotions especially actress Elizabeth Moss. "
