A cross between The Office and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it's absurdist, occasionally gross and beautifully original.

Entertainment that's not rooted in some sense of reality just doesn't hold my attention, but I'm happy to travel to 8th century Norway if the characters will debate the fashion sensibilities of horned helmets.

If you are left uncharmed by Norsemen you are both heartless and immune to their heartily irreverent approach to situation comedy. Lighten up and let the men in plaits beguile you into stupid, helpless giggles.
