  • Vikings 5×09 Review: A Simple Story

    If there’s one thing to be said about “A Simple Story”, it’s that this episode drives the Vikings season 5 plot forward – and does so very, very quickly. Normally I would say that episodes that move things along the way “A Simple Story” did are great, but I’m still not fond of the time […]


  • Vikings 5×08 Review: The Joke

    My first thought upon finishing “The Joke” was, ‘well, that didn’t turn out the way I thought it would.’ The question is, did it turn out the way Ivar thought it would? I suppose I shouldn’t get ahead of myself. If push came to shove I could at least say this: “The Joke” began and […]


  • Vikings 5×07 Review: Full Moon

    Last week we saw that Bjorn was returning to Kattegat, and I’ll be honest, it was great to see him and Lagertha back together in “Full Moon”. Other than Bjorn and Lagertha’s reunion, though, I’m torn about how I feel regarding the Kattegat story line in “Full Moon”. Part of this is definitely because I’ve […]


  • Vikings 5×06 Review: The Message

    “The Message” began right where “The Prisoner” ended by revealing Bjorn and Halfdan’s fate, which was definitely a relief. While I assumed that Vikings wouldn’t kill Bjorn off so soon, after Ragnar’s death last season it certainly wouldn’t be completely improbable for them to do so. Trigger Warning: “The Message” contained some triggering content; namely, […]


  • Vikings 5×05 Review: The Prisoner

    Last week I was pretty sure that Ivar and the rest of the vikings hadn’t simply abandoned York, and sure enough, “The Prisoner” opened with them boiling out of the sewers to attack the Saxons. This meant that “The Prisoner” kicked off with a pretty gruesome battle, rife with awful deaths of random characters. As […]


  • Vikings 5×04 Review: The Plan

    I suppose you could say there were several plans being hatched in tonight’s episode of Vikings; the question is, which one was The Plan? In the past I’ve loved watching the Vikings characters discover new places, but neither Bjorn nor Floki’s travels are really living up to my expectations. Thankfully “The Plan” shows Floki apparently […]


  • Vikings 5×03 Review: Homeland

    Despite the fact that “Homeland”, the third episode of Vikings season 5, jumped around nearly as much as “The Departed”, I’m happy to report that at least some of the story lines have already been cleared up and seem to be coming together nicely. While “Homeland” didn’t feature too much of Bjorn, I did really […]


  • Alex Høgh Andersen on Playing Vikings Anti-Hero Ivar the Boneless

      History Channel’s Vikings has always been a show that takes chances, and last season was no exception – in fact, they took things farther than they ever had before, and much of what happened featured Ragnar’s youngest, crippled son Ivar, played by Alex Hogh Andersen. WARNING: This interview with Alex Hogh Andersen includes spoilers […]
