The slow descent of Ragnar Lothbrok continues in Vikings season 4...
This review contains spoilers.
It’s been difficult, these last few weeks, to watch the slow descent of Ragnar Lothbrok, not just for us, but as the first couple of scenes this week in Portage make clear, for his ex-wife and Bjorn. The former may defend him, but the latter is at his breaking point, actively calling his father out in a semi-public way by pointing out how weakened he is by the retreat from their first engagement with the Franks. Whether it is this or the temporary respite from the drugs that provokes Ragnar’s moment of clarity at the cliffs is far less important than the fact that he not only restores the spirit of his followers and allies, but apparently mends fences with Floki. We have rarely seen the troublesome man more sincere »
Do the ratings for the Vikings TV show matter to the folks over at History? The series saw another big drop in the ratings last year --- down 28% in the demo and 44% in viewers -- but the cable channel renewed it for a supersized fourth season anyway. Will the numbers keep falling? Cancelled or renewed for a fifth season? Stay tuned.
Vikings takes place in the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore (and raid) the distant shores across the ocean. The rest of the large cast includes Katheryn Winnick, Clive Standen, Gustaf Skarsgård, Alyssa Sutherland, Linus Roache, Alexander Ludwig, Ben Robson, Moe Dunford, Lothaire Bluteau, Jasper Paakkonen, Kevin Durand, Jennie Jacques, Peter Franzen, Morgane Polanski, Amy Bailey, Dianne Doan, and John Kavanagh.
