I love viking mythology and history so every new viking movie and series are so much appreciated but this one is a huge disappointment.
This Beowulf series reminds me Xena series or Hercules. Beowulf even got a wannabe funny companion who is not too much fighter like in Xena or Hercules.
I feel like the series was made in Bollywood.
Viking warriors wear a red coats like a roman soldiers.
Viking armor is more fantasy or Greco-roman than medieval viking armor.
Beowulf use Conan Atlantean sword.
Main characters have dark hairs.
Several vikings are played by Indian/Pakistani actors, some of them are even played by an Africans.
