The Vikings show on History Channel has been excellent. I would highly, highly recommend it. Start at the beginning. This disc is the first half of the 4th season because History split the season into two halves separated by months, which is annoying. The show still is good, has intrigue, lighting, well made but starting to show its age in that some stories are played out yet they keep going back to them. What made the previous seasons so good was that whole new story lines or locations would come about, but they are stuck on some of the characters and stories now, and they really need to move onto some new people/stories/adventures. This seasons is still good, and I recommend watching it, but if they intend to go to a fifth season, they need some new material. The DVD disc works fine, and picture looks very good for DVD. Very convenient format for watching on your time, and unlike digital copies, you can lend it to your friends when you are done to get them into the show. That is how I got into it - a friend was praising it and lent me the first season on DVD, and I was hooked.
Often I wonder what would happen if we went back to a political structure more like what we see here in Season 4 of Vikings. Where disagreements could be settled with the purity of a mallet piercing through the brain matter of your foe. Instead of long political discussions, we could have much more successful dialogues, like ripping a man's arms off if we disagree with them and then taking their land and property. Those were simpler times; dare I even say better times.

Vikings: Season 4 - Part 2 [3 Discs] [DVD]
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
This is a great series, my husband loves it. He has been wanting the series for a long time
I'm buying a lot of TV shows for my personal library, usually waiting until they go on sale. I know I could be streaming most if not all of the shows I like, but I'm part of an older generation who liked to collect books, music and movies, and have them around. It may not be the best investment, or no investment at all, but if the price is right...VIKINGS is still a very good show in my opinion, even though it has lost some steam recently, hopefully the next season would come up with new developments. My rating has nothing to do with the show, it's for Best Buy having some great offers on entire seasons of many TV shows, past and present.
