By  | 


If you're a fan of historical fiction, I've got some pretty good news for you. Vikings, the History Channel's flagship drama, is finally back for season five! If you're looking for a fast-paced, somewhat realistic insight into the Old Norse world, this is definitely the show for you. It's got powerful female characters, some pretty awesome battle sequences, and even some slight historical accuracy! There's also an excellent array of inventive facial hair on show. What's not to love?

If you still need convincing, there are a whole host of other reasons to watch Vikings. Read on to find out just a few of the reasons why you should give this critically acclaimed drama a chance. Warning: there's a couple of minor spoilers ahead, and quite a lot of Game of Thrones-bashing. Sorry, not sorry.
