The Last Kingdom
« on: June 22, 2017, 09:24:14 AM »
The Last Kingdom is a totally awesome new show on Netflix I think every one should go watch. I need it to get awesome ratings so they decide to renew it.

It's about a Saxon boy raised as a Dane Viking who is torn between his loyalties to his Dane family and his desire to regain his birthright as a Saxon lord. Through The focus of this semi made up character the show tells the real history of King Alfred The Great. The only king to defend his kingdom of Wessex against the Danes and later unite all the kind kingdoms under one monarch and become what we know as England.

The show is really well made with superb actors. It is based on books which I am now going to hunt down and read because I am that hooked on the story.

Sounds interesting.  Might give it a go once I'm done with Dexter and How to get away with murder...  :th_drbble: :shifty_eyes:

We've watched Last Kingdom.  It's good, I like Vikings a little better.  Yes, the lead character is f***ing gorgeous.

I need to be watching How to Get Away with Murder.  I watched the first two episodes about a year ago and then got distracted.  "Look something shiny!"   :th_happy093:

Jedi which season of Dexter are you watching now?  That is possibly my favorite series EVER.

I'm going to check out the books first.  Thanks for the recommendation, Dizz!

That does sound interesting. And at first I thought that guy was Jon Snow with straightened hair! :biglaugh:

Since we're talking about TV shows, is anyone else watching the new Twin Peaks? I was in LOVE with Twin Peaks back in the '90s, and this reboot is even better than the original. You probably have to be a David Lynch fan to enjoy it though. It can get a little weird :grin:
