There are a few simple things in live that bring me joy. Falling asleep to the sound of a thunderstorm, curling up with a good book and a cozy blanket, and having a warm bath on a cold winter evening, to give some examples.
Oh, and ‘Vikings.’ That’s another one.
When I say ‘Vikings,’ I’m referring to the television series, but I also have a tremendous amount of respect for actual Vikings who once walked our Earth many moons ago.
I’ve always been a fan of historical shows and movies, mainly ones with a fantasy or medieval feel. ‘Vikings’ is no exception, and because I’m almost on the sixth and final season, I wanted to chat about it because it seriously is one of, if not the best TV series I have ever watched.
I watched the first seasons last year, and was quite pissed to learn that Netflix wouldn’t be adding the remaining three seasons for quite some time. Netflix does now have the first half of the fourth season, but nothing further, so I bit the bullet and subscribed to watch the remaining episodes via Amazon Prime.
Let’s just saw it will be a sad, sad day when I do actually finish the final season of ‘Vikings,’ though I’ll probably re-watch it a handful of times. It honestly is that good.
I will be honest in admitting that *SPOILER ALERT* after Ragnar died in the fourth season, I wasn’t entirely sure if the remaining episodes would even be worth watching. Travis Fimmel as Ragnar brought an explosive presence and feel to his character, and his loss was rather profound. However, I am happily surprised to report that ‘Vikings’ and its crazy plot twists haven’t changed in the slightest since Ragnar’s exit, and I am thoroughly enjoying the shift of focus from Ragnar to his sons following his execution.
‘Vikings’ is the shit, and I cannot stress how well done the show is. If you haven’t watched it, you’re missing out.
