Is It Worth It to Watch Vikings? (Detailed Analysis)!

How good are the Vikings

If you’re anything like me, you want assurance that a TV show is worthwhile before committing to watching every episode of every season. Not worth the potential letdown to invest too much time into something that may not pan out.

Now, I don’t want you to just take an internet stranger’s (that would be me) word here either, so I have collected and compiled unbiased and reliable data that will give you a pretty good idea of how good Vikings is overall, per season, and per episode.

Is Vikings Actually Any Good?

The average rating for Vikings on IMDb is an impressive 8.5, putting it in good company with shows like Mr. Robot, The Newsroom, Generation Kill, and Sons of Anarchy (all with an 8.5 rating). You’ll probably like this if you’d enjoy watching any action drama set during the Viking era.

Is Vikings Actually Any Good

There is widespread agreement amongst critics and viewers that the show is excellent, as evidenced by the series’ average score of 87% across all of the media rating services considered in this article.

To sum up, I believe that any show that attempts to tell the story of Ragnar Lothbrok’s adventures will be interesting and gripping if told well. Finally, the stories from the Norse sagas have been brought to the screen in a way that is both exciting and educational, and I believe the showrunners have succeeded in doing so.

There’s no denying that the show educated many viewers about the Norse world and Viking age history, and I, for one, am grateful for that.

Comparison Of The Quality Of Each Season Of Vikings, Game Of Thrones, And The Last Kingdom

In my opinion, the first four seasons of Vikings are highly entertaining and addicting. It’s on par with other shows that offer a similar type of entertainment, like Game of Thrones and The Last Kingdom.

But I like the more subdued and “realistic” style of The Last Kingdom when it comes to depictions of the Viking Age, and I think Game of Thrones (minus the last two seasons) is better than Vikings.

Despite its occasional exaggeration, I continue to enjoy Vikings for its unique aesthetic and the excellent music score that is expertly layered over the show’s gorgeous cinematography. The tunes do a great job of getting you in the Viking spirit and reminding you of the hardships of life back then.

Let’s see what other viewers think by checking out how each season of “Vikings” rates on IMDb, and also comparing it to The Last Kingdom (another Viking Age TV series that I think is well worth watching) and Game of Thrones (a similar-ish show most of you have likely seen or at least heard of).

Is Vikings Worth Watching After Season 4?

Seasons 5 and 6 have some excellent episodes, and you should watch them if you enjoy the show’s new characters and storylines. However, many people agree that the quality drops significantly in both of these seasons, and they advise you to avoid them if you don’t want to be let down.

You’ll get to see what happens to the characters you’ve come to care about, and there are still plenty of compelling plotlines to tell.

What’s It Really About?

While Vikings: Valhalla has received considerable press for its focus on the end of an era, the first season of the show takes a more understated look at a culture’s dying days.

As much as the world evolves, some things remain constant. Despite their religious differences, Christian and pagan Vikings raided and lived very similarly. They have similar tastes in fashion, hairstyles, and even worldviews.

What's It Really About

While both sides launch attacks, the villain, Jarl Kre (Asbjrn Krogh), a Christian Viking in the vein of Assassin’s Creed, continues to refer to his troops as “berserkers” despite the fact that they are on the receiving end of the same moniker.

As a result, Valhalla’s guiding ethos for the future is focused on how to manage a massive cultural shift. The Vikings show no signs of changing the practices they’ve used for centuries. However, the Norse/Viking identity is undeniably shifting, whether as a result of a wider net of religious idolatry or a change in location.

Leif and his Greenlander companions arrive in Kattegat and, in many ways, they resemble Vikings from a bygone era, intent on going about their business and settling down.

From what we can deduce about Leif’s future, cultural shifts among the Vikings will drive them ever further into the unknown, all the way to a land they had previously considered mythical: North America. They will face tests to their Viking identity long before they reach the New World.

Final Words

Last but not least, I find the Vikings’ tale more interesting than that of TLK. The plots of these two shows are comparable in quality,

but I personally prefer the Vikings’ because it has a stronger focus on its characters, better plot twists, and more touching moments. At its best, TLK is a good show, but Vikings are fantastic.
