The Last Kingdom

"Destiny is all."

This 5 season historical fiction stars Alexander Dreymon as Uhtred who is born a Saxon but raised as a Dane, which is both well used as an internal and external conflict in the story as Uhtred becomes a very accomplished warrior and tactician... and quite quickly falls into the service of an English King.

Checking which people are actually favored by the gods...

Excellent writing helps characters grow into people the audience loves or hates, then the reverse, and back again with the best lines seemingly reserved for kings and priests. If anything my only complaint is some characters seem immune to aging, which is a standard one in any story that spans so many years.

Apparently just like Wu Assassins and  Ray Donovan there are plans to cap this off with a movie finale which I am excited about. However, even if that doesn't appear or doesn't deliver, the series is a complete package having a great ending in its own right. Very entertaining and highly recommended!
