Did You Know?


A hypothesis for the name 'Boneless' for Ivar is that it was was actually 'the hated', which in Latin is called Exosus. A medieval scribe with a basic knowledge of Latin could easily have interpreted it as ex (without) os (bone), thus "the Boneless". It is generally regarded, though, that Ivar was physically disabled. Also 'boneless' could simply refer to him being impotent, and not otherwise disabled. See more »

It's fallen
6 December 2018 | by thegarlicconnectionSee all my reviews

I'll give it one more episode, but this was bad. I'm not sure if it was as bad as the previous episode, but it was bad. The poor acting is much more noticeable with poor writing.
