This season was definitely an improvement from season 1...Especially the overall cinematography and story developments.

I like this show a lot. It's relatively fast paced and filled with good action and twists. What I also like about it is that they studied viking history pretty deeply and based the show on that. It's also based on true events and people so don't make the same mistake as I did when I went reading history of Ragnar Lothbrook on Wikipedia and spoiled myself everything

I think Travis Fimmel(actor who plays Ragnar) is also pretty cool dude, he doesn't give a fck, many interviewers asked him if he would move to Hollywood or somewhere else in USA and he always says that he's doing all this just because of the money, he doesn't even try to hide it
His biggest dream is to buy himself a big farm in the middle of nowhere in Australia and raise cattle true farmer like Ragnar lol

Yeah I read the Wiki but I still didn't know how they would go on the last ep. I really like Ragnar. This show is great and hasn't gotten much exposure.

Can't be compared to GoT on any level...

but the main character is good looking and a good actor. Other then that, meh.

Nah I wouldn't compare it with GoT. Honestly I don't think anything can compare with GoT (yet).

But this is definitely an underrated TV show.. doesn't get the exposure it should. Good acting, great choreographed fighting scenes, badass characters, great visuals, etc. Plus, it's (loosely) based on actual history that took place; Ragnar Lothbrok and his sons were real historical figures. It's already had me researching Vikings culture
