If you like the TV show "Vikings".. you will REALLY like this show also. The first episode is a bit slow building up but when it jumps forward in time (i'm guessing about 15 years), the show really starts to pick up and become an enjoyable watch. I will defo be watching this series every week. Don't go into it expecting there to be loads of blood and gore.. because there is not in the first two episodes.. but it's still early days. .and judging about what going on.. they are building up to an epic battle.
Season 1: 7/10
Season 2: 8/10
Season 3: 8/10
The Last Kingdom is a period drama about vikings taking over England. This show is pretty close to "Vikings" from the discovery channel. The show has decent action, a compelling storyline and raw feel. The casting was excellent and the underlying plot is very intriguing. I suggest you give this show a watch.
