That is high praise,indeed, Shireling. :)

I will pass that along to her, as I know sometimes she is overwhelmed by her job because they sometimes come under horrific deadlines. On occasion she's had to work for 24 hours (or more) straight in order to meet a show time.
Her company does a lot of prop work for Broadway shows as well. Most times she doesn't get the feedback from the fan base that she's done good work - so I am sure your accolade will touch her when I pass it along. :)

I had no idea :( . Yes, please tell her. I love this show, and she's clearly one of the unsung reason's why.

I watch these shows like "Face Off" and "Jim Henson's Creature Shop" where artists have two or three days to come up with something, and it's never struck me as the least bit reasonable. Those are contests, so it's rare for something to be called camera-ready by the judges, but - man :/ .

That is too cool! Let her know the efforts are appreciated very much!

I have to admit I have fallen behind since it moved from free-to-air TV to Foxtel here in Oz. I'll get the discs though.

Yesterday I tumbled onto the last six episodes from this past season, and they were repeated over an eighteen hour stretch on The History Channel. I am so looking forward to it! :)

"Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons."

We have Season 3 coming up!

I brought this show up on another website and I got one person crapping all over it because their opinion was it didn't reflect anything about the Viking era. I tried to have some discourse with them, but after a few posts back and forth, it was pointless. I'm sure nobody else there will bother commenting now that the thread has been shit in. (I will admit being somewhat adversarial ... we ARE talking Vikings here) ;)

I've been rewatching the past two seasons, getting ready for tomorrow night :bad:. I don't blame you one bit for tryin', Hal, but there's just no pleasing some people.

Maybe they need a little Floki, hmm?

I just saw Episode 5 this past Thursday, and I didn't realize that you were just a few weeks behind, Hal.

I'm so glad I haven't posted anything, knowing this. This season is - well, you'll see. I can't think of anything to say that won't be spoilerish :/ , except that I really love Ragnar and Lagertha *chuckle* .

Don't worry about spoilers and me. If I wanted to, I could stream it via my U.S. DNS. I'm not all that deep into the storyline drama I guess. Ep 3 airs this week here. I Enjoy watching the shows as they come. I did the same with Sons of Anarchy, where I didn't start really watching it regularly until season 3. I caught up in time with DVDs of the 1st 2 seasons.

Episode Three is about as tame as things will be. As for Four and Five... *head in hands, followed by gross sobbing*.
