Any of you Viking nerds started watching the Last Kingdom? Season 1 and 2 are on Netflix. It's fast paced story-telling, especially compared to Vikings or GOT. Really good stuff so far

yeah I've only watched the first series but it's great; the second series is on my list; I think it's better than Vikings.

It didn't start out that way, but I agree that it has surpassed Vikings at this point.

I guess I'm in the minority in loving Vikings. But like The Hobbit trilogy, they could have condensed it a lot and made it much better. But this is History channe, who's succumbed to mostly reality to and forgot how to make good shit.

History Channel is pure shit. 20 years ago they had interesting stuff on there. Now it is Pawn Stars and American Pickers 24/7.

I've really enjoyed Vikings, but now that Ragnar is dobe, I don't really see anyone who can carry the show. Plus the writer (same dude who did the Tudors) has been a little self-indulgent with all the Athelstan shit and continuibg to write his no talent daughters into major stories

Historically bjorn did way more than his dad who is borderline mythical. If the writing is right....
