Oh, cool. I'm now watching season four.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
{Ensiferum}

First episode didn't exactly get off to a flying start, still lots of new characters and storylines, so hopefully once the introductions are out of the way it will settle down. Not sure how I'm going to handle
. I hope they don't overdo this side of the story.

We're halfway through it now, and it's had mixed reviews so far. It's picked up the pace a bit over the last couple of episodes, but still not up to it's old standard. I know from reading the later books (I have 11 and 12 still tbr) that Ross does get more involved in politics, but sometimes this series has felt like being fed a political broadcast, it's not very subtle.
