  • Uninspired mess of black and white characters and cliches

    4.0
    We really wanted to like Vikings. The first episode had a very good atmosphere, an eerie Scandinavian ambience with the introduction of promising characters like Ragnar and Floki. However, instead of developping these characters the series went quickly downhill from the 3d episode on towards a mess of linear black and white characters, low budget effects, weak scripts that just do not hold up anymore these days against the dozens of strong told series out there (from Homeland to Game Of Thrones and Carnivale, you name it).



    Clich after clich combined with sometimes plain weak directing and uninspired stories that one just does not buy, with all the goodwill in the world. I could not rate this any higher than a 4 in this day and age. Honestly it looks like a more violent Hercules or Xena the warrior princess. And that's not a good thing...
