Vikings used to be my favorite show but this season is nonsense
26 December 2017 | by ezzsammourSee all my reviews

First of all as an arab the usage of arabic language was not right at all, they were speaking with an modern Egyptian language. and since when brand new Hookahs were available in the 10th century? I think the existence of Ragnar had its affect on the show.
