Why this show flopped on the WB is still a mystery to me. I watched it when it aired and loved it. Recently, I viewed the 8 episodes again on youtube, and still fail to see why it received such horrible ratings. Travis Fimmel seems to be little more than eye-candy in the show, but he holds the part pretty well in my opinion. It's not like he'd have to have a fabulous vocabulary in order to play the part in the first place. As for the rest of the cast, I feel like they all played their parts well. Any show that can make you feel sorry for the main character if that was the intention and make you dislike any character that caused the main harm is doing it's job. I was very entertained by this show and it's a shame that it wasn't seen as entertainment by more people. I'd love to see this show come back even though it's been off the air for many years now.
