I watched it in English, as I hate subtitles, it did not let me down, the first 2 episodes was ok, but it only gets better and better, definitely watch it for something different, a solid 8, giving it a 9 because of the bad reviews, definitely worth watching!

Well what a cracking little show - It's only six episodes long, but very easy and enjoyable to watch.

The emotional challenges the show puts the main character, and the audience via the death of a likable character, are severe enough that you want the main character to pull out a sword and go medieval while the other part of the story is trying to paint a reality with high school relationship drama and coming of age stories.

I really did, but the writing is just not original, and the plot crawls along going nowhere and is very unfulfilling.

Slow paced, terrible characters, plot holes galore .

It all made for engrossing viewing.

Such a confusing show .

Cliche - that's one word to express whole script.

I watched the whole season because the premise is good, and I like the anti-polluter crusade, but this was just a waste of time to watch.

Considering that, I find the pacing a little slow.

It's setting and characters are so odd they add to the story, when you retell what you have watched to others, it sounds really stupid, but it is so engaging I couldn't stop watching, the hot Nordic types assist many shots, it screams out for a series 2.

Why are the Giant Parents aging way slower than their children?

The CGI was cliche and anyone under 12 would cringe at it.

BUT, the subplot of the mythology supernatural good v evil isn't nearly as interesting-in fact, it's way overdone and frankly boring and juvenile.

I was immediately immersed in the story.

The trama is boring, dialogues are terrible, Terror scenes are ridicolous.

Surprisingly good and intriguing series .

Worth the watch .

Dark, unexpected .

This was seriously entertaining - the more so because it wasn't full of Barbie and Ken dolls like the usual offerings.

The first season, though it's a bit slow the story is really gripping.

Slow and boring .

Surprisingly entertaining .

Positives: An enjoyable story Good character development Most of the acting is good The plot isnt hard to followNegatives: Kills the better character in first episode.

exciting..thrilling .

I don't care about the drama that some uninteresting teens deal with, in their uninteresting lives, in an uninteresting story, it is BORING and OVERUSED.

An unintentionally funny (but at the same time oddly boring?

It promises way to much and nothing happens.

Gripping first series.

Truly enjoyed it .

The scenery is breathtaking at times, the cinematography great, the atmosphere amazing, acting is good.

Unfortunately the plot flatlines early on, loses steam and blunders its way into 6 episodes of a waste of time.

The scenery, the script, the performances all gel together to give u an enjoyable experience.

Second, there is a big empty Room in a Cave with Lights and a "Dont enter" Sign, doesent look suspicious right?

The scenes are suspenseful and to sum up the series in one word: binge-worthy.

The story is boring.

Was a bit to slow and very little action.

Greta Thunberg Propaganda .

It was a waste of time watching this serie.

Well it was really super predictable which is a very bad thing for a mainly mystery supernatural show secondary drama and third thriller so if the plot had maybe some more twists and was thicker than that it could've been sooo much better.

What a boring and flat story this is.

Worth the watch

However, in the USA, we are more inclined to like a movie or series that is entertaining.

The show is such a cliché from start to finish, with the Twilight vibe from the perfect and rich Jutul family, to the big brother with the mischievous little brother (Loke wannabe anyone?

Really enjoyed the way it was slow and so realistic , looking forward for the next season with high expectations

I don't think I'll see another scenario, where the main character is shown so loser, it was just a waste of time for me

Its very well made and u wont find a single dull moment in the entire season 1.

Interesting flick that was quite suspenseful.

This series didn't really catch my interest from the trailers, but I was bored and watched it anyway, and now I can't wait for season 2.

For me it fell short due to flat dialog and predictable (at times stupid and nonsensical) storyline.

Finally a fantasy series worth watching.

There are so much more stupid Things in this Show, and there is nothing happening until its Over.

I enjoyed it.

The series plods on through 6 episodes and gets more ridiculous as we go along.

Definitely worth watching.

Odd thing, I fell asleep and had to rewatch a few episodes; thus, Norwegian calming enough to lull me to sleep (it was somewhat hard on my Italian ear to listen to; though, not nearly as bad as the German, Dutch or Slavic languages...

As the title says, it was unexpected.

Slow and steady wins the race .

It's so slow and there isn't avreal climax.

Compelling story, a bit slow at times .

Very entertaining .

I recommend this show to people who are happy to enjoy a bit of an impression of Norway and who are ok with a slower story telling.

Really enjoyed it.

I enjoy these young Scandinavian actors, the slow way the story is unfolding, the lack of hysteria.

It's different, it's weird, it's really f*ing entertaining!

Well it's nice story good plot but very slow for my taste, at first it doesn't give you straight what's happening (and that's nice) and when you get a little bit what's happening they turn it again just to make more episodes(?

The characters do an amazing job acting out there intense emotions, and mind you this show is packed full of those emotional intense moments!

Potential wasted, and a waste of time .

Pretty guessable plot but it was very enjoyable, particularly if you love Viking history and their mythology as I do.

If you watch this show for even two episodes you become bored at the pace and character development.

Starts as a great slow burn twisting and turning leading to a brilliant story and outcome..Enjoy

A superb director, fantastic actors, engaging screenplay and a very big special effects budget.

Gripping first series .

Enjoyed it.

I really like that the show is slow and steady, not jumping into everything at the first chance.

Good, but slow with horrendously bad English .

They cannot write a good story either, apparently, because the story is weak, choke-full of cliches, choke full of plot-holes, slow, shallow and quite boring.

Pacing is slow, also sometimes I felt that I am watching twilight which is bad.

I want to say with it, they have left so many chances, the ambiance, characters, it was all okay, but with every episode halfway through all the episode lost all its brilliance, tension, it became so boring and ending was so sloppy and disappointing, it is ultimately nothing more than a bad soap and scandinavian unworthy, the creators get a 10, the elaboration and processing a -8, remains about 2 stars.

story is gripping...

Very enjoyable!!

Fascinating .

Entertaining .

We highly recommend it!

Then new look at the Norse mythology is rather intriguing.

I enjoyed it - strong with flaws .

Entertaining.

Everything seems to slow down, and people start doing illogical stuff.

Teenagers will probably think it's dull.

Slower, darker, better version of Smallville .

Total predictable show.

This is very slow starting and is probably one of these series that you will appreciate more when it is finished.

Amazing, Gripping, New concept, Crisp and Breath taking location.

What A Waste Of Time .

A very gripping and interesting start .
