Prepare for high-flying adventures with Hiccup, Toothless and the rest of the Dragon Trainers. Meet new dragons, learn the secrets of the legendary Boneknapper and see what is in store for the holidays on the festive island of Berk.
When Hiccup and Toothless discover an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.
Dagur the Deranged escapes from prison and ventures in the uncharted territories to build an armada against Hiccup and his Dragon Riders. Coming across a cylinder (christened "Dragon Eye") that provides information on the uncharted territories, Hiccup and his quirky team search the region looking for both Dagur and hitherto unknown species of dragons, eventually leaving Berk to build for themselves a new and distant base of operations called Dragon's Edge.Written by
Too much focus on Heather and unimportant stuff - disappointing beyond words.
I don't know what I expected but it certainly wasn't this chaotic bundle of mess. I think that is an accurate way of summing up the entirety of the show.
One of my biggest pet-peeves is the excessive and heavy focus on Heather, (she is in over 30 episodes!) This character is so redundant yet she takes over the entire plot and sidelines and upstages all the other preexisting characters. She is easily one of the lowest and weakest parts of the show. The story would have stood stronger on the shoulders of the dragon riders - the actual heroes. It's the dragon riders we, the audience, have an emotional attachment to - not Heather. I really couldn't care any less about her and her family drama. It's all so very annoying and rather boring to endure.
The second issues is the plot in itself. It makes absolutely no sense when you take the movies into account and consideration. There are so many contradictions and continuity problems I have lost count of them. The writing is mediocre at best, only saved by Tuff and Ruff but even they can't save this mess. The writers wasted so much time on the unnecessary Heather-Dagur arc that the Viggo- Ryker ending, the Hiccup-Astrid relationship and the wrapping up of everything - it all just feels tacked on in the last minute.
