Rollo to get some screentime then.Just finished the last episodes. Think it went out as well as expected and naturally the show came to a conclusion.
Not sure if everyone is aware but a new show Vikings:Valhalla is planned, set 100 years into the future in Willian the Conquer's time. Not sure of release date yet. Further details here:
I remember really 24 and went to Amazon to buy the box set of season 2 (when I was halfway through season 1) and the description started with "struggling to deal with the shocking death of his wife at the end of season one..._There’s a spoiler in the episode tile images. fecking idiots. How hard is it not to do that?
Reminds me of when the Netflix description literally told me who died in an episode of Sons.
someone start a petition to get this brought up in parliamentI remember really 24 and went to Amazon to buy the box set of season 2 (when I was halfway through season 1) and the description started with "struggling to deal with the shocking death of his wife at the end of season one..._
Yes they could have done some more on the North america part. Also, they could have used Leiv Eriksson in the series as he was the one who went there, around year 1000. While Ubbe, who went there in Vikings, died in 878.Awesome series. Better than game of thrones, which dragged on way too long. I predicted correctly that they’d eventually show. Great acting and fight scenes.the exploration of North America. Was a good touch and maybe could’ve been shown earlier in the series instead of dragging the lost-at-sea bits for so long
I found the actor playing Bjorn was clearly trying to mimic Ragnor’s mannerisms, which makes sense as he spent the most time with him, and was clearly trying to create a big legacy like arld Rags. Didn’t see it as so much with Ubbe. He was definitely the most likeable for me though.So I’m up to the last episode of season 5.
i didn’t think the show would still be watchable after Ragnar but damn it’s addictive. I really enjoy watching ubber mimic Ragnar in so many ways
Gonna get stuck in to these links, thanks!Yes they could have done some more on the North america part. Also, they could have used Leiv Eriksson in the series as he was the one who went there, around year 1000. While Ubbe, who went there in Vikings, died in 878.
The mixing of timelines in Vikings is what I think should have been more accurate, even though I know this is not an accurate history documentary.
For those interested, while waiting for the spin off series Valhalla, here is a link to an article on History Channel about Viking exploration of North America and some other stuff:
And here is some wikipedia artcles about the characters in Vikings (and some others not mentioned in the series). Some are from sagas, some from more accurate sources:
Ragnar and wives:
About Ragnars wives:
His sons, 12 or more in total but 9 shown here:
And here is a series of documentarys about the vikings, many of them the same as in the series (see the playlist to find whats interesting among the videos):
There is also plans to make a movie about Harald Hardrada, the last great viking king, Di Caprio is planning it and a script has been written. It is to be in the style of Bracehart and the lead character to be played by DiCaprio acc. to rumours.
Great that someone could get some fun out of the links I can loose myself on the internet when googling stuff like this. facinating world before modern times.I found the actor playing Bjorn was clearly trying to mimic Ragnor’s mannerisms, which makes sense as he spent the most time with him, and was clearly trying to create a big legacy like arld Rags.

It’s such an interesting time and perhaps somewhat under-appreciated. They were obviously pretty obsessed with fame, which is very interesting in itself.
Edit: reading these, it really seems like either Ragnor and/or the people that write about him are full of shit
