Sure is! great first episode. lagertha is a freak! lol. Jokes aside......not taking care of Kind Fine Hair when she had the chance to is going to haunt her. She seemed pretty consumed with power and quite arrogant to toy with him and not remove the threat.
I thought a little too much was going on (there were four major storylines going on, along several minor ones), but I still enjoyed it and I'm glad it's back.
I actually preferred the multiple story lines
I think it was a little too convenient he was able to escape so easily, which is why they didn't show it on screen
Totally forgot this serie (thank you GOT, Better call Saul..) ... What a season it is already?
Followed it till season 2. How is the quality of the next seasons?
2 was probably the weakest. 3 was good, 4 was great.
Anyways, is Floki supposed to have found Iceland? Greenland is probably too far?
Yeah I was thinking the same, Greenland or Iceland. I'm leaning towards Iceland cause it looked like a Volcano in the distance and isn't that more of an Iceland thing? Season is off to a good start.
I'm starting to get things a bit mixed up with the Last Kingdom which we started in the break. From the trailers, sneak peeks and the like are we not going to get any Rolo this season?
I thought maybe he made it all the way to Newfoundland.
There was a 35 minute promo for the upcoming season entitled The Saga Of Lagertha
It's pretty much just Ivar talking to the Seer about Lagertha's past while they show clips from previous seasons
The actor playing Floki mentioned they were filming in Iceland, so I'm pretty sure that's where his character landed
The Vikings named both iceland and greenland.
Greenland is an artic hell hole and Iceland is a beautiful island with volcano and is inhabitable.
Therefore is someone went to "greenland" and seen what a hellhole it is there was no way they would go to "iceland"
The vikings took all the hot women and loot they pillaged and put them in iceland,why to this day iceland is loaded with hot women.
One of the creators of the show said Iceland.
What a great episode. This is going to be a great season methinks.
Another well-crafted episode.
The English sure did underestimate the Vikings. That was obviously a trap. Sounds like Lagertha will be getting some reinforcements.
Yeah, both Skogafoss (waterfall) and Eyjafjallajökull (volcano) can be seen in the first episode
Yeah it's Iceland. Hrafna-Flóki Vilgerðarson - Wikipedia
The show's starting to drag a little bit. The Vikings are battling like they've enabled God Mode and the enemy AI is a step below your standard Serious Sam enemies. There's not really much suspense when you know they're going to smoke the Saxons and all the main characters have plot armour. Hoping they experience some actual adversity soon.
But it’s what happened historically lol. The Vikings are never evicted from England, and they leave a significant legacy on the British Isles. Sven Folkbeard becomes King of England about 100 years from this time, and Rollo’s descendant William the Bastard conquers England in 1066 and is the ancestor of all future English monarchs. Sigurd was killed last season so we know they main characters aren’t immune.
The Saxons become feared mercenaries in continental Europe/the Middle East in large part due to their contact with Norsemen. It’s historical their dominance. Unless they were out-maneuvered/out-smarted, they usually won.
Yeah I know but still. It's the show.
Further, I know the history a bit but the show's suffering for the lack of tension. You just never think the Vikings are in serious danger and...hey, whaddayano, they aren't. There's really no suspense now.
There is tension though between the brothers which I think is going to be the focus point of this season possibly. The serious danger will be the division of the brothers and internal threats, not external. There will have to be a showdown between Ivar and Aethelwulf/the bishop guy though first ( I would think)
So what you are saying is history class is boring.
Should they have re-written history to make the show more fun for some fans? I personally don't think so.
Vikings is not nor has it ever been intended as ****ing history class. The invasion of the Great Heathen Army took something like ten years. On the show it was a couple of episodes. What I'm saying is there's no suspense because you know nothing's going to happen to anyone major.
He killed his brother two episodes ago. At least give it three episodes for them to slay a major character.
