A slowly decaying show. Vikings has a large fan base and I can understand that. It is a good show at its core and had a great starting season. However, by the halfway point of season 2, you could see it slowly decaying in quality and lose its interest. Season 3 was a bore and I could only bear the first 8 episodes of season 4 because I forced myself to finish something I had started. But I couldn’t do it. It became a drag as I skipped through episodes because I thought it was a waste of time. Some months ago, a friend of mine started the series and I didn’t tell her my opinion. To my surprise, she ended up dropping the show at about the same episode as me. It seems that indeed it loses its interest as it goes but manages to keep leading you on for at least the first 3 seasons.
