Release: Nov 13, 2015 - Author: Blade41 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB - more from this series
After the History Channel stopped doing real history documentaries and started focussing pseudo-scientific studies (UFOs and the like) as well as pseudo documentaries (Pawn Stars) which they achieve great successes with, they also tried out (mini) series. The Drama series Vikings is one of them and throughout the first two seasons entirely satisfied its audience. In early 2016, audiences will be able to enjoy the forth season.

Just as in the previous season, all episodes were aired in a censored version on American TV. Besides numerous cuts to the plot, there are also several scenes that had to be censored. All sex and nudity was either removed or replaced by alternate, more harmless footage. Regarding violence, there are no differences. At least not in the first 5 episodes.

This is a comparison between the American TV Version aired on the History Channel and the Extended Version.

Both Versions differ in 13 scenes:
7 additional scenes in the Extended Version
3 additional scenes in the TV Version
1 scene with alternate/extended footage

The Extended Version is 85.63 seconds (1:26 minutes) longer than the TV Version.
