***We did watch The Viking series.**
I remember the one on TV from back around 1957-58. It was a takeoff on the Kirk Douglas-Tony Curtis movie.
Another good one is THE LONG SHIPS from around 1964.
Then there was that travesty THE NORSEMEN from 1978 with Lee Majors. A horrible film!
The one with Richard Whitmark and Sidney Poitier was good, until the end, when the large golden bell fell into the ocean and.............floated.
That cracked me up, even as young boy.
