Audience Reviews for Vikings: Season 5

  • Dec 04, 2022
    Epic in scope and packed with action, Vikings fifth season is well directed and brimming with depth, but lacks a lot of the focus and tightness of the previous seasons with some elements feeling overdone.
  • Oct 22, 2022
    Vikings remains a masterpiece as always !!! One of the best series ever!!!
  • Aug 31, 2022
    Awesome series with tons of violence and action. You really feel connected to the characters and it is an added bonus that it is loosely based on historical documentation. I binged the entire series in about 2 months and enjoyed it greatly. highly recommend this series
  • Feb 12, 2022
    Incredible series. Highlights the events of the viking age perfectly. Even with a low budget, History Channel has hit a grand slam with this production.
  • Feb 08, 2022
    after forth season nothing is the same. Fifth is trying to keep the level but it is impossible. Of course it not means that it's not worth of watching.
  • May 22, 2021
    Just no, If you want an advice watch it till the 3rd season, then hear the 4th one and stop right there. Itj just bad. They really don't have anything else to tell. It's not a "historical" serie animore, (it never was completely acurrate but you know what I mean) Now it's a parody of itselve. Written for what feels like a 15 year old whit a lot of se* expectation.
  • Feb 07, 2021
    Vikings fifth season could have (or should have) done more with less. Sweeping battles (along with what is arguably television's most beautifully staged clash) and massive shifts in power aside, not all characters and storylines are created equally. It's the in-between episodes that feel incomplete and dragged out that sometimes overshadow otherwise masterfully created ones.
  • Jan 17, 2021
    Once an amazing show Vikings, rolls downhill as the season progresses. Characters and built Vikings world is completely changed from the initial setup so the story can progress, while forgetting how they treated and perceived same situations earlier in show, and it suddenly turns into a "power of friendship saves the day" kind of show.
  • Nov 28, 2020
    Very good. Ivar is annoying as fuck. Bjorn goes to India. The one brother chooses Ivar over ubbe which was stupid. All the brothers end up going to battle for Keitikeg. Ivar survives but loses the city
  • Nov 27, 2020
    Bringing us into the world of Vikings, learning how they live, think, and survive. Slow pace with exceptional storytelling, plenty of characters story and their development. Outstanding acting from everyone too. Everything went well up until Season 4 | follow us at @uncle.review
