Vikings remains at the top of its bloody game, with Fimmel still commanding the role he was born to play in a series that fully immerses itself in a world of wonder and plunder.

Jumping back into History's Vikings has brought me nothing but joy.

In the first three episodes there is enough intrigue and bloodletting to keep fans watching.

These men and women have a lot more to offer than just their shields and axes.

From a fandom standpoint, I think it's awesome that Lagertha is not only back in the thick of it, but with her own lands and title to boot.

This series has a lot going for it -- it's all up to Hirst now to find the right balance once again.

From the very first day it aired, Vikings has proven something special. The show never suffers even a single dull moment.

Feb 19, 2015 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

Vikings is reliably badass, if you like that sort of thing.

Feb 19, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

If you just want tales of seafaring derring-do and Ye Olde Odin-inspired battles, Vikings will supply what you need.

Feb 18, 2015 | Full Review…

While this is essentially the popcorn version of a quality serialized drama -- with more overt appeal to men than most -- Vikings is the sort of nifty endeavor that can give the idea of shamelessly marauding in search of loot a good name.

Audience Reviews for Vikings: Season 3

The religious overtones and romantic subplots pf Vikings have always been present, but it is in this third season that they are most prevalent, unfortunately to the detriment of the series. Where before they enhanced the story, this time around they detract from it. However they more than make up for this minor issue in other ways.

This is essentially the same show as the previous two seasons but what was bad before, is even worse on S03. The dialogues are even more ridiculous and with plenty of unnecessary exposition. There are death scenes that add nothing, trying to be shocking like in Game of Thrones, but forgetting that whenever someone dies on that show, it's important and will be a huge deal to everyone around. Vikings, it's time for me to say farewell, you were once entertaining and I learned a thing or two from you, but you're turning into unbearable cheese lately. And of the bad kind.

The third season of Vikings offers hints of a game changing season, setting up storylines that, given the opportunity, can pay off for many seasons to come. This season took some chances, developed more of an ensemble cast with an increasingly capable and intriguing array of characters, and offered gritty, realist, and unflinching action. It’s a series that proves to be always entertaining and increasingly intelligent with its symbolic overtones and forays in to the mystical. If there’s a criticism to be had, it’s that Ragnar Lothbrok’s character has seemed to stall, lacking a real energetic sense of direction. This perhaps is intentionional, given the rumblings of Travis Fimmel’s departure but, even so, a sharper direction needs to be honed going forward.
