I am having great difficulty trying to watch Series 5 episodes 1 - 5.

Not on Netflix , Amazon gives me the flick and History cant download it.

The universe is against me.

Any tips, please?

It’s on SBS on demand or have those episodes expired?

Bummer, you can buy per episode on itunes or go the "unofficial" route to catch up.

Bugger, I thought all the series were still on Netflix.

 

If all else fails mate I will probably but the series anyhow on DVD and you can watch them, is a fantastic series.

I'm not sure if SBS has more episodes up its sleeve to televise later this year. I thought series 5 was supposed to have 20 episodes.

A few regulars have been killed off in the last couple of screenings but the boneless one's come into his own and I do like the English priest. Both characters are well acted. Pity the Sami (Lapland) girl went so soon. Didn't get to see enough of her ;) Lagertha's still around though :)

I think the Vikings will meet their match in England under the new king. He's a smart cookie and will probably build his navy to confront the foe at sea. Looking forward to the next installment.

I believe there is another season to come later this year.

 

I don't mind the English priest, his acting can be put on a bit thick sometimes but what's not to like about an Athelstan-that-can-swing-a-15kg-sword?

 

Spoiler

Myess, the little Sami lady was...quite nice...Beorn certainly thought so...

 

I think Rollo should have appeared in the second last show and then the final one could have been more interesting.

 

No idea why the brother just stood there and let his other brother strike his neck, that was random. Maybe he is signed up to another series somewhere. :D

Good ol Athelstan the man who could have talked them in to Paris if not for that 1/2 smart Floki the Barnaby Joyce of Vikings correction that's giving him to much credit the Tony Abbott of Vikings.

This piece pretty much captures my feelings about the final & whole season. My only hope for the next season is Ivar getting a blood eagle.

Well written.

 

Sigh, nothing lasts forever I guess. Maybe time for the show to go to Valhalla.

 

I have bloody enjoyed it!

Looking forward to seeing how the picture quality goes on SBS with this series.   Series 4 on Prime looks stunning whereas the previous season on SBS HD was a little disappointing.

Just a reminder that Vikings starts up again tonight with a double episode beginning at 8.30 on SBS.

I enjoyed it. Not like the height of the Ragnar days but some interesting stories now opening up just the same.
