    Well, it's the first time I've seen a Cathar character in a popular TV program...

    It warmed my Gnostic heart.

    I actually have the surname "Temple" in my family tree, like Henry John Temple, Lord Palmerston. The name, as you've guessed it, has to do with the Templars. Funny though, my own surname is that of a village with its own "Hospital". I'm not partial to either monastic order. Balian d'Ibelin in Kingdom of Heaven said that 'we (he at least) defend this city, not to protect these stones, but the people living within these walls', an oblique reference to the filmmaker's preference of the Hospitallers over the Templars and an SJW idea of how outside intervention to the Arab-Israeli wars ought to be done. The simple fact is, before the Roman Empire, as now, there were three regions of people: Gentile Palestinians called Philistines, Israelite Hebrews of Judea and Ishmaelite Arabs of Nabataea. You look now and see the Gaza Strip standing in for Palestine and the West Bank standing in for Nabataea. I think it is possible to argue for a Gentile state on the desert coast, as the Sea Peoples did until Goliath fell.

    But 'Vikings' is as great as ever! Best series of the world, fullstop!

    The Viking series featuring Ragnar Lothbrok, was a fairly good production, but I wasn't to impressed with certain details there, the series obviously tried to promote. To much pushing of sex and crime, adultery, homosexuality, even some race mixing, respecting Islam and demonisation of European people in various forms. .

    My wife loved the series, and I was always ruining for her, by countering the strange Feudalistic depiction of Viking society the first season presented.
