Latest Vikings review: Storyline started around Ragnar and Fimmel is what made the show a hit. Killing him off was a bad enough. Vikings ends season 4 with more bloodshed in the wake of tremendous change, as the Great Heathen Army finds itself confronted by someone new. The Vikings were seafaring Scandinavians engaged in exploring, raiding and trading in waters and lands outside of Scandinavia from the eighth to eleventh centuries. Vikings closed out Season 4 with a huge victory for Ragnar's sons and a bit of a curtain drop for the series in general. Oh, the show's not ending. The Tomatometer score — based on the opinions of hundreds of film and television critics — is a trusted measurement of critical recommendation for millions of fans. VIKINGS tells the tales of the raiding and trading of Norsemen in medieval Scandanavia. So don't be put off by the pedantic armchair historians out there give vikings a chance. it is what it is. 134 of 183 people found this review helpful. Was this review helpful to you?
