Season one of Vikings renewed people's interest in the myths and figures of the early medieval world. Season after season, the show created an immersive world full of issues from the Viking era. So immersive that a Vikings fan can give you a hundred reasons to watch the show--warriors, monks, pagan gods, and whatnot. As intriguing as it might be, a Twitter user couldn't help but notice something unusual in season five.
Aroon Deep, a journalist, noticed and shared his observation on Twitter that Netflix India has blurred all the scenes containing meat, nudity and violence.

On seeing Aroon's tweet, other users also complained about blurring out or completely eliminating a scene on other occasions. While scenes with nudity were blurred, some of the scenes showing violence were completely eliminated. Twitterati further pointed out that the Indian version of episode 12 is about 42 minutes long. However, the international version of the show is about 46 minutes long.
