Am I the only one that is a bit tired of Ragnar smiling at everything? It seems like half the plot is Ragnar grinning about something or another.


Nope your not lol! My ex wife when we were watching today started bitching about it. However I told her it seemed kinda ramped up this Ep cause I think they were showing how dif the 2 cultures are.

Season finale next week. Im looking foward to it. I was kinda shocked at the last ep.

Plus I was so stoked to see that actor playing the King! I cant remember his name atm but he always IMO plays fucking great roles in everything he does, good guy or bad guy hes an awesome actor!

I prefer Ragnar's smiling to the Monk's look of perpetual amazement.

I like his smiling demeanor. *Smile* I like you...*smile* Im going to gut you...*smile* Im a good guy...*smile* Im going to sacrifice you, raid your fucking coast, kill your men, sell the rest to slavery and than sacrifice them...

Its much more threatening IMO :) And a little bit nuts :p

I found the season finale... odd. It was almost entirely setup for S2... the only thing just barely resolved was Rollo finally opposing Ragnar. The plague storyline, Ragnar boinking whatserface, that all seemed hammered into the episode in a hurry. And no fighting. It was the season finale of VIKINGS and the closest thing we got to violence was one of Ragnar's sidekicks getting his face slashed for voyeurism.

Beautifully shot as always, Gerdi's death was sad, but this seemed more like the first ep of S2. Decent ep overall, but i think last week's ritual would have made a better end point, or the week before where they clobbered the English.

My favorite episode was the second to last. It was great seeing the way they portrayed the Viking religious ceremonies. The end was just great.

Yep that was a horrible season finale. That Princess telling him I'm preg after what maybe 2 days was just fucking eye rollingly cheesy!

This was the most disappointing Ep of the Season by far for me personally.

Have your friends over to your longhouse to share mead and women. Vikings season 2 premiers next Thursday, February 27th,

The last episode of season 1 was confusing and seemed out of place, so I kind of have lowered my expectations for season 2. I'll watch and see how it goes and make a decision on whether it gets dropped from my viewing schedule or not.

If Ragnar's there, there ain't no problem. Maybe that last episode was weak but I'm still eager to see what they're going to make of this series -- especially how they are going to handle Rollo's side of the story.

Nice, saw the new season advertised, are they going to replay season 1, think I need a refresher, although reading through this thread jogged my memory a lot :p

Mixed feelings about S2 based on how mixed S1 was, esp that finale. When this show was great, it was really great, but when it got teachy/preachy it was sooOOooo weak. Still very pretty to look at tho'.

Donal Logue is back for at least the start so hopefully we'll see the promised war, but i have a bad feeling they'll jump ahead and skip all the potentially awesome Ragnar v Rollo conflict we crave.

Have preliminary plans to marathon the first season over the weekend with some friends. Interesting to see how this will "impress" someone a) living in an area with a Viking past and ;) re-enacting the same period as a hobby. :p

Say what I will about the story, Hist channel did a glorious job w the visuals, accuracy and combat when it actually took place. I think you'll enjoy.
