History‘s first original scripted series Vikings premieres March 3 at 10 PM. It is set for nine episodes and follows the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), his ambitions to discover civilizations across the great ocean to the west, and the inevitable conflicts that arise along the way. Here’s the opening credits for the Michael Hirst-created series — they have a kind of Mad Men-meets-Magic City vibe in parts with all that falling and sinking.
