Justified & Ancient

Ah yes Lagertha - you're right.They seem to have reinvented her to be a near clone of Lagertha from Vikings.
There's no real sense of wisdom, ethereal power or even any basic Elfness about her.
A shame, as Morfydd Clark is a great actress, but is rather hamstrung by the direction the scriptwriters of TROP are pushing her character.
It's a fine line to read because main characters generally speaking have to be likeable or relateable on some level, hero or anti-hero, to invest us in the story - and yet how can you make what is almost a goddess, likeable? But, if you can't, the whole thing is less compelling. (ETA: Cate Blanchett managed it).
Talking of lost gods, I wonder if we're getting the incredibly irritating Tom Bombadil? Annoying on one level but intriguing on another.
