The Last Kingdom is based on a book series by Bernard Cornwell. It’s about a Saxon boy who is captured by the Danes and taken as a slave. But he quickly becomes part of the family of the Danes. Then the rest of the story is somewhat about how he (Alexander Dreymon) balances the line between Saxon and Dane and who he is. I don’t want to give any spoilers away because it is so good. I mean, really good. It’s five seasons long on Netflix and well worth it! It’s just so good. So very, very good. I just finished bingeing it and I actually just want to watch it again. I’ve actually checked the first (of many) books from the library (because it’s good to support our local libraries).
I cannot praise it enough. I don’t know how true the show is to the books (yet), but the show is very good. I’ve heard the books are good and I like the show so much that I’m willing to risk tainting the love of the show with not liking the book. So I recommend it, especially if you like “Viking” things. Highly recommend.
