    It was awful. There were some genuinely good moments but what the hell happened to this wonderful show.

    The battle with the Rus...didn't happen.

    And the Battle of Edington was awful. How can you butcher such an important moment.
    If you ever feel embarrassed, just remember that Republicans heard Trump try to say "Yosemite" and then voted for him again.

    Not a GoT bad final season, but pretty awful. TF thinking Warcraft was going to launch him into movie mega stardom was where it started going downhill. The last 10 episodes were so so silly.

    Is this actually based on any history or just a mythical/fantasy setting?

    I think it's mostly based on sagas, just with no gods or other supernatural elements. Otherwise, the show seems to have some good acting, so if you can stomach the awful costumes/armours, misplaced fauna/geography, historical inaccuracy, and various other Hollywood cliches, you should be fine...

    Not entirely correct. People definitely have shared "religious" moments. In season 4 all the sons of Ragnar hear from Odin at the same time despite being spread across a thousand miles, and in season 6 Ubbe and a ship full of Danes definitely believe they are being followed/stalked/attacked by Jormungandr.

    That's just what I can remember off the top of my head.

    In my understanding that would be a mythological setting if the norse gods are present in there.

    It is period based, they have some religious themed scenes mostly in the early episodes that slightly go off in visuals but they aren't important. They play with things as media and tbf the sagas does/did like things that didn't happen, people that weren't, changing people's histories or place and time in it.

    But its historical fiction not fantasy. 100%
