review vikings - opinion youKill the Queen - Review 4x02 Die Vikings-Episode Kill the Queen meandert lange Zeit etwas richtungs- und ziellos durch die verschiedenen Handlungsstränge, läuft aber in ihrer zweiten Hälfte zu sehr guter Form auf. Immerhin war sie von ihm unfair behandelt und links liegen gelassen worden, nachdem Ragnar mit Aslaug anbandelte. Mercy - Review 4x03 Vikings befindet sich zu Beginn seiner vierten Staffel nach wie vor in einer kleinen Findungsphase, was die Episode Mercy recht deutlich zeigt. Eine Auseinandersetzung, die mich von der ersten Sekunde an packen und bis zum letzten Augenblick nicht mehr loslassen würde. Eine erneut atmosphärische Inszenierung sowie starke Charaktermomente haben so eine nicht makellose, Ob Harald seinem Schicksal trotzen und nicht nur Ivar, sondern letztlich auch Bjorn überkommen kann?

Season 7 Black Lightning: Season 2 The Flash: Season 5 This Is Us: Season 3 Saturday Night Live: Season 44 Star Trek: Everything We Know About Zombieland: Vikings - Aired Wed, Jan 30, Ragnarok Vikings: View All Videos View All Photos Vikings returns for another season of fantastic performances, epic battles, and sharp writing sure to please its barbarous hordes of fans.
Vikings makes up for its slow pace with captivating characters and visual appeal. Vikings makes up for its lack of historical accuracy with a heaping helping of violence, romance, and striking visuals.
Travis Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok. Katheryn Winnick as Lagertha. The first two episodes were kinda lackluster but the show really picked up from the 3rd episode onward.
In conclusion, Vikings is still a fantastic show with phenomenal performances by its cast, amazing production value, good storytelling, and terrific execution.

A mixed bag but an improvement on last season. This season of Vikings, so far, has been a mixed bag for me. While it does have some fun episodes, it fails to deliver when it comes to story This season of Vikings, so far, has been a mixed bag for me.
While it does have some fun episodes, it fails to deliver when it comes to story progression and character development.
Also, the acting can be weak at times. And, seriously, episode 10 was such a letdown. I do understand what the creators were trying to do with that episode, but their idea for it was so poorly-executed.
My feelings are conflicted for this first half of the season, however, if the second half of this season fares better or, hopefully not, worse , then I will change this rating.
But, until then, this rating will stay the same. Miss Ragnar and Rollo. Show is not as good with out their strong presence. Found the first episodes slow.
Episode 3 picked up somewhat, but Miss Ragnar and Rollo. Episode 3 picked up somewhat, but there are only three strong characters left in the series and they are having a hard time holding the series to the same high standards.
Still love Lagatha, Bjion and Floki, but the series needs more. In years past loved watching and made it a priority, but this season I leave it in que for 3 or 4 days.
So far quite boring. The "genius" strategies of psychotic Ivar keep working because of the blunt imbecility of his enemies, which continue to So far quite boring.
The "genius" strategies of psychotic Ivar keep working because of the blunt imbecility of his enemies, which continue to wear paper armor and rubber swords, while standing passively around, waiting to get killed by the heroic vikings.
So it "works" like the 4 seasons before. This time at least the Heahmund and the Aethelwulf guy seem to have bought real weapons and can then and now kill some otherwise invincible vikings.
They should have bought some intellect as well, but obviously they ran out of budget and have to fall for every trap that even a complete retard would have noticed.
You spice that up with way exaggerated cruelty, lack of any moral integrity of anyone and ready is the dish of this hard to swallow something.
Next time try to come up with some interesting story, characters that are not a total cliche of the immortal viking warriors and a little bit of realism and there you go.

Vikings enthrallingly captures the world of Norsemen and oarsmen, circa in the Eastern Baltic but soon heading West to England.
While they are every bit as wild and woolly as the historical figures of Norse sagas, such is the power of Vikings that we come to know and even root for them, so enthralling are they and almost everything else here.
The New York Times. Vikings is a mini-series about a band of professional pillagers with a disregard for human life and a relentless focus on gratifying material desires.
So it is somewhat surprising that it is also a refreshing study in restraint. Mostly, though, Vikings is disappointing because so much of the component parts are good but are ill served by flabby direction and a gassy script.
This is a brilliant show. Great acting and fascinating characters make it easy to watch. I adore this new show, The Vikings.
It makes you learn some history and the scenery is gorgeous. Also, love the cast! Travis Trimmel is I adore this new show, The Vikings. Travis Trimmel is wonderful as Ragnor and his wife is a fierce warrior.
It transports you back into the 8thth centuries of Viking existence and reign. An interesting mix of drama and history, that seems to well illustrate the differences between these ancient pagan warriors beliefs and An interesting mix of drama and history, that seems to well illustrate the differences between these ancient pagan warriors beliefs and modern day morals.
The plot is nothing radical, but its solid, well written and well acted add in some beautiful scenery and a little action and your onto a winner.
I absolutely LOVE this show! The footage, the talented, and oh-so-brilliantly-cast actors! The incorporation of history I am depressed that the season has ended!!!
A great series with compelling characters and intense plot, the only letdown is the clearly limited budget for the bigger scenes. S04E06 actually skips a battle scene ffs.
As usual , something season are exceptional. As usual , something that started great , is now being watered down to stretch content Halfway through Season but willing to continue on the hope that things get better 7.
By timd , Jan 08, Simply put the writing is just subpar. The plot isnt clever or dynamic or intriguing at all, its all very superficial and Im still waiting for the story to get some substance to it.
The dialogue is just laughable at times with how bland and stale it feels. The characters are just not deeply explored. But for some reason I find myself watching the next episode over and over again.
I hope its only uphill from here. By V3ntilator , Mar 12, Season 4, Episode 4 really had a WTF moment! Yes, The famous King Harald Fairhair.
I live in Norway, and everyone learns about King Fairhair at childrens school here. Any kind of people in history had families etc, and Vikings is no exception.
Its always been known that Vikings had settlements spread worldwide atleast. Vikings were in America long time before Columbus, and i think we will see that in a season, and probably in the mid-east too.
I think we can blame hollywood for portraying Vikings the wrong way all the decades. I live in the sea area where this TV series is based on, which is a little bonus.
By PatiPhillips , Mar 12, Vikings keeps getting better and better every season. So far Season 4 has been amazing. This is the most overlooked show on Tv.
Game Of Thrones is so old and stale. Reaches Stellar Television Heights! By 54markl , Mar 10, One of the greatest shows on television, and my favorite.
The "Breaking Bad" of the Dark Ages! Intelligently scripted and acted, there is never a dull moment, supremely entertaining.
I give it my highest recommendation. By kiki , Feb 20, Someone had mentioned this show to me in passing. It was a while before I actually gave it a chance.
It plays well to both female and male viewers. I fell in love with the show. Although much of the show has been changed for entertainment it does try to be historically authentic.
That is most likely which draws its audience. I really hope they do not kill Ragnar off to soon. If you know viking history As the show does try its best to be historically authentic Although I love his character so much.
I also loved how they made Rolo and him brothers although they lived long apart from each other. It just draws you in more.
Immersive and believable acting accompanied by beautiful surroundings, just love all of it! So well put together.
See you on the battlefield! Great Show To Watch! By Stephan19 , Jan 08, Blood versus nudity 8. Why is it acceptable on the one hand to show the historically "accurate" violence of the time period, with no shortage of bloody spears and axes plunging enthusiastically into shoulders, backs and abdomens, while the "accuracy" of pagan nudity is shied away from wherever it is encountered?
Why is it "acceptable" to show and revel in the dripping gore of human and animal sacrifice, but not allow even a glimpse of nudity from a culture that was not shy about it?
Showing her naked beauty would have been both proper and relevant to the story. It would also have been fitting with Norse and Celtic folklore.
As an aside, I think this scene would have been far more effective had Ragnar come upon Aslaug himself and joined with her in a mystical fit of passion heralded by some powerful god-like omens, giving more strength to the idea that their union was inspired by the gods and their child destined for greatness.
Another typical example is when, in season 1, a slave girl is publicly sacrificed by the "angel of death," having her throat slit. Also, when Ragnar and Lagertha were in their home, making love and sought to lure their Christian slave-priest into bed with them , it would have been a fitting temptation for Lagertha to wantonly display her pagan charms to the priest a few seconds of tasteful nudity, not a burlesque show , but again, such "accuracy" is painfully avoided, even where it makes perfect sense and would enhance the storytelling.
I can understand that the History Channel might like kids to watch the show with their parents or maybe even their teachers - to learn about Viking culture and the history of how the Norse and the English became friends - but this is clearly at odds with the idea of which is more harmful to impressionable minds: To me, and anyone not stuck in Victorian England, the latter is clearly more traumatic, and no one was ever emotionally scarred by a shapely pair of buttocks.
By oslomann , Sep 02, I am a Norwegian with real vikings as ancestors, and I feel that the show is disrespectful towards the memory of the vikings.
I think that the people that have made the series are portraying their own ancestors, which are the British, as much better, more stylish and sofisticated.
And they are also portraying the vikings as animals. I mean, where in history is it documented that vikings picked up and kissed street rats that walked around in France, like Ragnar did in season 3?
I really doubt there is any evidence of that. They also show them eating like pigs. But it is not like they were innocent nice people either.
The British people have a long history of being brutal, so it is not like they should get any sympathy for being attacked. Still the series has an angle that makes it look like the British are sooo innocent, and are made to be the people your supposed to sympathize with.
The series also looks like a little badly made "history reenactment" program. It is also a busted myth that the vikings were very dirty, actually they cleaned themselves often.
By scottweishaar , Aug 15, Basing a show loosely on historical events is awesome, as a history buff it think it introduces a whole new type of show.
There are other interesting periods in history, characters, and events that could be the basis of like shows.
I hope this show lives long and the ability to keep the creativity remains at the level set to date. I had to re-evaluate my whole scale based on this much like Breaking Bad caused me to do that as it was a great show that ended with everything wrapped up with satisfying closure Ragnar kicking butt with his ex on his side has proven to provide regular doses of excitement I hope will continue for years to come.
As I said, if it runs out of story how history runs out of story is hard to imagine I love the notion of the history channel taking it sideways and doing the same in different regions and cast of characters in which the world was formed and cultures and countries formed, molded and shaped.
By fandom95 , May 25, One of the best shows!!! By armandoproudtobealbanian , Apr 27, This show has everything in it drama, action, comedy, betrayal and many exciting other features.
I just love this tv series!!! By kmangundya , Apr 21, This is an amazing show. Ragner Fimmel is an amazing actor the way he gets into.
