Vikings review

Posted : 2 years, 4 months ago on 30 July 2017 10:45

The best Vikings series out there. The story in the series is based on true historical events. The director did an amazing job with this series. He was able to capture Ragnar Lothbrok as a great influential man in their times

IF I HAD A HEART

Michael Hirst became my favorite TV show creator and writer after seeing his previous series, The Tudors (2007-2010). It also became one of my Top 5 favorite series of all time and it's the only series that i've watched straight again after finishing it.
Reason why i like and appreciate Hirst's work is because he take his projects seriously and write every episode only himself. He honor the source material and add some believable fiction in it, without distorting the facts. The story never bore you. There's always something interesting going on. Every character who he write is interesting such as colorful and while perfectly developing them, im sure they reflects respectfully the real person which they are based on.
After finishing Tudors, i looked forward Hirst's next project and couldn't be more happier when i red that he was writing the show based on vikings, which is one of my favorite cultures. After first episode i was badly hooked and after first season, it became one of my favorite shows at the moment. History of different countries and cultures has always interested me and i think it's a great such as endless subject to turn movies, tv show or books.
The show is violent, bloody and also a great human drama. Course of the story progress steady and never slow. There's no unnecessaries fillers, which many series or movies have. Sets, costume design and make-ups are realistic such as mighty excellent work. Also the actors do a great job on their roles.
I have to admit that i haven't heard anything about the main character Ragnar Lothbrok or his life or deeds. But have to say he was very achievable, enthusiastic learner, determinded and also unexpected nature. It's the classic from the simple farmer to the king of his people story, but very interesting and emotional one. There's a lot of twists and backstabbing, but also heartwarming moments.
Season after season show evolves for better and the journey of Ragnar become more dangerous, violent and bloody.

احداث المسلسل والقصة جميله، لكن بناءً على انهم وصلوا الى الحلقة 8 الاحداث ماهي كثيره وللأسف كان يقدرون يجمعون هالاحداث ب 4 حلقات ويوفرون 4 حلقات آخرى لأحداث ثانية.

بالاضافة ان المسلسل يحتوي على مشاهد جنسية قد لا تعجب الكثير.

بشكل عام المسلسل ممتاز ويستاهل المشاهده.

History Channel did a great job making this show really one of the best of 2013. It's also the only show on history channel that i watch. The overall show has a great atmosphere surrounding it sure it may not the narrative ambition of Game of Thrones or the action of Spartacus but for a history channel show i think that they did a great job. It was a solid first season nothing special but im glad to see it get renewed.
