Bishop Heahmund (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is the wrath of God.

From the trailers, it looks like we're getting bad English Actor JRM. I hate it when he goes into this mode--did he not learn anything from the Tudors?

JRM decided to go with one facial expression for all 20 episodes of Season 5.

I don't like the great Rollo with Roman Polanski's rat faced daughter.

Needs lots of Clive Standen ass displayed prominently.

replies 8Nov 27, 2017 8:41 AM +00:00

R8 have you been watching Taken on NBC? Clive is in it and therefore his role in Vikings has been reduced.

Watch Pilot (Season 1, Episode 1) of Taken or get episode details on

Excited but I will be recording and watching Survivor.

It's not the same without Ragnar. But I will watch it religiously!

Meh, started watching because of J Rhys Meyers but there's not enough of him.

Ivar is beautiful! I would be all over that lunatic, boneless legs or not. His upper body is perfect.

replies 14Nov 29, 2017 7:37 PM +00:00

Well I finally got around to watching this seasons first episode, maybe it is the lost of Ragnar, no Rollo, and very little of Bjorn, but I didn't find it as interesting as other seasons.

Man the violence and blood, they seem to be doing even more of it. I want to like these people but they are all such horrible horrible people.

I will keep watching it, because I just normally love this type of historical show, but I am not loving the new people the way I loved the older cast.

replies 15Dec 3, 2017 10:31 AM +00:00

If you like this type of historical show right after Viking this Wednesday Dec 6th there is a new weekly show named Knightfall, about the Templer Knights that looks good.

The Knights Templar were the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages, entrusted with protecting Christianity’s most prized relic—the Holy Grail—and harboring secrets capable of great destruction. KNIGHTFALL goes deep into the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their complex relationship with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution, the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now.

I love American TV, we can watch every second of extreme violence but god forbid, we see sex or a naked person.

replies 17Dec 4, 2017 3:11 AM +00:00

I dont know if you get a different version in the states, but it is a Canadian and Irish production and there is sometimes nudity on ours.

replies 18Dec 4, 2017 3:19 AM +00:00

R18, yes, in the US, we get the censored version. So we get all the violence but none of the nudity.

That scene with JRM's bishop with the woman kneeling in the church--I wonder if a following sex scene was cut? The jump to the next scene seemed weird.

replies 19Dec 4, 2017 2:02 PM +00:00

Interesting scenario posed in this episode: who do you think Ragnar would've sided with re the Saxons? Would he want to fight, like Ivar or make peace, like Ubbe/Hvitserk?

replies 20Dec 6, 2017 5:01 PM +00:00

Very violent latest episode Ivar's winning. Not liking that.
