Trivia

"Buddhist" monks are depicted in the opening scene. Buddhist monks were almost certainly present in even the Western-most regions of the Silk Road in the 9th-10th centuries. In particular, one Sufi saint-Shaqiq al-Balkhi (d. c. 810 CE)-talks about meeting "shaven-headed mendicants" on the Silk Road that seem to have been Buddhist. To be clear, those folks are *not* Himalayan, and the robes are not what Himalayan Buddhist monastics wear. I say this as a professor of Himalayan Buddhism. Regardless, in my opinion this an excellent approximation of the silk road circa 800 CE. See more »

Goofs

Ivar the Boneless died in 873. Oleg came to the throne of Kiev only in 882. They could not have met under the circumstances depicted in the show. See more »

Simply amazing!
4 December 2019 | by jessie999See all my reviews

I feel like this episode only lasted ten minutes. There is so much going on right away from the very beginning and it never slows down. I love the Rus army commander and the prince, Ganbaatar and Oleg. We also see a completely different side of Ivar now which is very interesting. I don't want to ruin the element of surprise for those who haven't watched this episode, so I will stop there.
