Re: Vikings (History) -- Season 4 Discussion Thread -- premieres 2/18/15

I'm on the fence on this. I'll definitely finish the season, but so far they have just used the extra episodes to introduce filler into what used to be a tight story.

Just keep it to the Viking raiding and maybe some internal Viking conflicts. They seem to be going way too expansive trying to tell the story from all sides and then throwing in a bunch of seemingly extraneous stuff.

The England story is boring. Ecbert has turned into a cartoonish villain,I wish he would grow his mustache out some more so he could twirl it with every move.

I find the French king a way more cartoonish character than Ecbert. Ecbert has a plan and knows what he is doing, the French king is manipulated like a pinball.

Re: Vikings (History) -- Season 4 Discussion Thread -- premieres 2/18/15

The English and French stuff is terrible. This was the final straw for me, I asked myself why I was continuing to watch Vikings this season.

There is some weird stuff going on with the gender politics this season.

I love how Bjorn's lady is now a warrior after killing her ex husband. Sad about the kid dying and the queen lady not caring about it. Bjorn will probably not notice his daughter is dead.

Giant hand oh no. I thought they went to straight crazy town with the giant but no.

Teen Ivar looks insane. I think they are using special effects on his eyes to make him look like a white walker.

Ragnar leaving and just coming back like a boss. No idea how that is going to play out. I would guess he will take up the king mantle once again.

Running out the string at this point and will delete the pass when this season is done. Just don't care. This show was so great and they ruined it.
Rode it out. Pure crap. Slow motion hand to hand brother battle killed it even more. Then the 10 year or so advance from one break (and there is a break every 5 minutes) to the next. Then all the sudden Ragnar is back after another break out of nowhere. Easy delete.

I guess with these jumps they want to get to Leif Erikson by the end.

Re: Vikings (History) -- Season 4 Discussion Thread -- premieres 2/18/15

at the time jump.

Rollo goes from a killing machine to barely being able to fight his junkie, injured brother.

Some comments from the show runner about the future in an IGN interview

Spoiler:
Ragnar's time as King is over

The show will focus more on his sons

Flokie will be following Bjorn

That was the final Ragnar vs. Rollo battle. (If that's the case I wonder if Rollo will even appear again.

Maybe Lagertha somehow survived and Ragnar has been living with her all this time.

Really good time to put this show to rest. This half season has been terrible, pretty much everything has been boring. I don't know if I really care enough for this transition to Bjorn to keep watching.

Hell no, it's pretty damn good right now. I'm really looking forward to the second half of the season.

Vikings is going to be on at least through the end of 2017. There's still 10 more episodes left in 2016 and another 20 for next season that will be split.

The show is not as great as it once was, but I still love it.

Two bloody, but strong, eps to close out the season.

The only thing that was awful to me was Rollo's victorious walk back into Paris.

Here's hoping that less publicity and attention from the suits allows the show to get back to its roots after the mess that's been the last few seasons.
