It is very good but I thought the 4th season dragged in places.

The historical inaccuracies bugged me a little but I got over it.

I though the series went on with historical accuracy?

As the series goes on the timeframe and placing of characters becomes wildly inaccurate if not entirely made up.

Superb series. Travis Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok was a brilliant piece of acting.

*Spoiler coming...*

Not sure how good it will be going forward without him (I know it had to come some time) - we'll see... but IF Lagertha stays in it then it will be worth watching still! :x

I think it's best to not go into it expecting historical accuracy. Just treat it as any other TV show and it'll be enjoyable.

And to keep key characters alive, and keep the plot line manageable. 

To be fair It's still true enough to history that you can easily spoil the main pays of it for yourself by reading up on viking history.

The first two episodes of season five were merely an introduction for bigger things. The show looks like they increased their budget as it is fairly popular now. Can't wait for Thursday (in Bosnia) for the new episode to premiere.

So im up to date but heres my thoughts so far:

The show isnt the same without Ragnar and Athelstan (to a lesser degree). They where the two strongest and most interesting characters. With Ragnar alive they could keep the most important parts of Athelstan alive because he partly lived through Ragnar. With both gone the only hope was really Bjorn. I think Bjorn could have taken the mantle but with him seemingly intent on raiding the other side of the world hes merely a background character. Its a pity, focusing on Ivar isnt the same. I really dont care about him, ok hes this evil death wielding cripple mastermind destined for great things. I just dont care, he doesnt have the depths to him that Ragnar had nor even Bjorn to some extent. It leaves me watching somewhat disinterested, even on the Lagertha front i dont care either what happens.

Dont get me wrong ill keep watching, but they have focused on the wrong character since Ragnars story has passed.

I don't think I could handle this show's depiction of history without losing a few marbles. Everyone knows Viking's were vicious mauraders in bright colours that were obsessed with hair perfumes and primping their hair. They were  concerned  with cleanliness and had retarded hairstyles that were shaved at the back and long at the front.

Genetically they were also short stumpy men, not the 6ft 3 blonde Hitler fantasy

Watching the first season. Never new the vikings had a culture of being wife sharing cucks.

 

Also I choose to believe Ragnar and his male model friends secretly want to sail to milan for the fashion shows. With haircuts and fashion like theirs.
