Vikings remains at the top of its bloody game, with Fimmel still commanding the role he was born to play in a series that fully immerses itself in a world of wonder and plunder.

In the first three episodes there is enough intrigue and bloodletting to keep fans watching.

These men and women have a lot more to offer than just their shields and axes.

From a fandom standpoint, I think it's awesome that Lagertha is not only back in the thick of it, but with her own lands and title to boot.

This series has a lot going for it -- it's all up to Hirst now to find the right balance once again.

Audience Reviews for Vikings: Season 3


Super Reviewer

The religious overtones and romantic subplots pf Vikings have always been present, but it is in this third season that they are most prevalent, unfortunately to the detriment of the series. Where before they enhanced the story, this time around they detract from it. However they more than make up for this minor issue in other ways.


Super Reviewer

This is essentially the same show as the previous two seasons but what was bad before, is even worse on S03. The dialogues are even more ridiculous and with plenty of unnecessary exposition. There are death scenes that add nothing, trying to be shocking like in Game of Thrones, but forgetting that whenever someone dies on that show, it's important and will be a huge deal to everyone around. Vikings, it's time for me to say farewell, you were once entertaining and I learned a thing or two from you, but you're turning into unbearable cheese lately. And of the bad kind.
