History CHNL: "Vikings" Season 4B (1/25 #19 "On the Eve")...Wednesdays @ 9PM...RENEWED FOR SEASON 5

Quote:
The HISTORY® original series Vikings transports us to the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore—and raid—the distant shores across the ocean. His ambition puts him at odds with local chieftain Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byrne), who insists on sending his raiders to the impoverished east rather than the uncharted west. When Ragnar teams up with his boat builder friend Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) to craft a new generation of intrepid ships capable of conquering the rough northern seas, the stage is set for conflict.

But for all its warfare and bloodshed, Vikings is also a story of family and brotherhood, capturing the love and affection between Ragnar and his wife, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), a respected warrior in her own right. It is the tale of Ragnar’s brother Rollo (Clive Standen), a fierce fighter who simmers with jealously; of Earl Haraldson’s wife Siggy (Jessalyn Gilsig), a dutiful beauty who may be less than loyal; and of the monk Athelstan (George Blagden), whose Christian morals clash with the Vikings’ pagan society. As ambition and innovation rattle a civilization, these characters will be put to the test—and their way of life will never be the same again.

Vikings was created and written by Michael Hirst (Elizabeth, The Tudors).

  • Katheryn Winnick as Lagertha, Ragnar’s first wife and famous shield maiden who often fights alongside him.
  • Jessalyn Gilsig as Siggy, Jarl Haraldson’s beautiful and politcally savvy wife.
  • George Blagden as Athelstan, an Anglo-Saxon monk captured by Ragnar on his first raid on England.
  • Gustaf Skarsgård as Floki, a close friend of Ragnar’s who is an eccentric jokester yet an inventive, creative boat-builder. Believed to be a descendent of the Norse god Loki, Floki designs and builds the prototype for a new generation of Viking ships.

This is a good show..I like how they really move the story along with each new episode..There really isn't any part of any episode where they wasted time and you felt like it was boring..It's definitely worth watching..Strong characters and good actors to play them..Recommended..

Surprised more people on here aren't watching this show. So far it has been pretty good. All the characters have been great and I definitely like how they are moving the show forward each episode.

.

laugh.gif yea I am not sure why that Following thread is so big, I have given up on that show, it is terrible. I think this show is just a bit unknown because it isn't on a network known for putting out good series shows. Glad to hear it is picked up for a 2nd season, about to watch tonights episode.

I didn't even know this thread existed. I would've been posting in it after every ep. Great show. Makes perfect sense for a 2nd season. Been talking it up a bit in another thread but it wasn't catching on with most ppl to generate any serious discussion.

Last ep was great, what they can't do in sex scenes they make up for in great action.

Didn't expect what happened to Lagertha to happen mean.gif I'm wondering if Siggy had anything to do with it. Thought it'd all be roses for Ragnar for the rest of the season with the only challenges being the different armies from each kingdom in England. Makes it hard given he'll have to watch his back with Rollo around plotting.

I started watching the show when it premiered, but for some reason I thought the season ended earlier than it did. I picked back up this season completely lost.

King Ragnar pimp.gif

I deadass thought Floki pulled that heel turn. I bet he still hates Aesylthstan (sp?) though laugh.gif

What kind of super shrooms he gave Rollo to make him be a tank again and feel no pain in his completely broken leg?

Bjorn fighting his girl in the woods laugh.gif

Dude playing King Horik is a great actor. I'm seeing him in so many things again lately. I still remmeber when he had that family sitcom years back. Same for dude playing King Eckbert. Son picking the right roles now. Seen him on The Blacklist the other night.
