Re: Vikings - History Wednesday

A lot annoyed me about this last episode.

Lots of "all of a sudden."

All of a sudden, we remember that we can use French troops, and they arrive like magic, all of a sudden. Without any Rollo scenes. I guess we couldn't afford to use the actor? After spending 3 episodes with battle build up, we can't have one episode of Rollo negotiating the use of his troops?

All of a sudden, Ubbe is totally in love with Torvi. Why? Because she was sad for a minute? What is her appeal? Don't get it, and don't get why I'm being asked to buy this all of a sudden.

All of a sudden, Bishop Horny is obsessed with Lagertha. Why? He saw her in battle for about half a second. Now "I've known you my whole life." Okay? What?

All of a sudden, Alfred is King. Convenient anaphylactic shock aside, the actual heir is told by his mom "Just don't be King, because I said so" and he's like "okay then mom." What? What sense does that make? And then she goes to Powerful Random Dude We Just Met, all of a sudden, and does the scheming she should have done in the first place and offers him a reward, and then he does NOTHING to get her son declared King-- instead, it relies on Elder Son just blindly does what she says-- and he still gets a reward. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND ANY OF THIS.

And, I love you Floki, and I want to live in your Icelandic Communist Paradise, but cut the f-ing dead weight, man. That malcontent is adding nothing for you. Regain your balls.

Anyway.

I hope it gets better from here on out.

This season has been lackluster and definitely a bit rushed. I wonder if the actor that played rollo wasn't available

Re: Vikings - History Wednesday

This last episode was puzzling... “all of a sudden” was an appropriate way to describe it.

I'm a HUGE fan of Ivar, and I thought this season had been pretty good, up until the last episode and parts of the one before it, where things just stopped making any sense.

Yeah, I'm not digging the whole civil war bullshit. Not sure it ever happened either. These brothers go on to much bigger and better things that the show needs to start getting to.

They definitely need to go kick more Saxon ass.

Re: Vikings - History Wednesday

Just finished watching the latest ep.

Priest is crushing hard on Lagertha. He's good looking enough that she might go for it despite is terrible pick up lines.

I hope Uber's wife lives. I'm rather enjoying her sinister character.

Ivar tells Bjorn that Bjorn is afraid of him. Then he attempts to kill Bjorn in the most cowardly of ways. Who's really afraid of who here. Ivar the Spineless!

Wessex zzzZZZZzzzzZZzzZZZzZzzzz

The arrival of the French army without showing the interlude in France was a rip off. If ya send someone on a mission to do something, you have to at least show some of that mission. They could have done it without showing Rollo. Hate it when shows do shit like. this.

I'm also a bit worn out with endings that flash back and forth between scenes. It's not artsy anymore. It's hack. In this case though, they probably did it cuz none of those scenes were all that worthy.

Given the limited reading I've done on Viking history, I believe I know what the outcome of this battle will be. Should be a doozy!
