Vikings: Season 1 Reviews

March 2, 2019
Though Vikings tries hard, unfortunately it can't hold a flaming torch to the big medieval bad boy on the block [Game of Thrones].

Vikings have always lent themselves to a certain kind of "B" entertainment and this latest iteration proves no exception.

Still, the acting is mostly flat and dour, with the exception of scene-stealer Gustaf Skarsgad (brother of True Blood's Alexander) as the merrily deranged boat-builder/mystic Floki, and the carnage is bone-crunchingly generic.

Mostly, Vikings is disappointing because so much of the component parts are good but are ill served by flabby direction and a gassy script.

Vikings is absurd, certainly, less historical than sensational.

It's rare that a work of fiction has us hoping that barbarians will resume robbing and killing innocent people, but our motivation isn't sympathy with the series' heroes. It's boredom.
