    This is just one of those shows that keeps getting better and better and really makes you love the characters and the story and the fact thatThis is just one of those shows that keeps getting better and better and really makes you love the characters and the story and the fact that its loosely based on real life makes it even better. This to me is just as good as Game of Thrones and better than Vikings. I never cared about ANYBODY on the Vikings show. It's a nice time period piece but thats it. The Last Kingdom makes each individual person special. The actors are incredible with their range, and the battles and action enthralling. Expand

    Season 3 is incredibly awesome. Netflix put some money into season 3 and has produced a very slick and more professional production than didSeason 3 is incredibly awesome. Netflix put some money into season 3 and has produced a very slick and more professional production than did the BBC in seasons 1 or 2. Smart, funny and action-packed with a deeper look into the mind of the main character, Uhtred. There are a variety of new characters that were great to watch, and we see the best acting by the main characters so far! They were into this story far more than the previous 2 seasons, and it showed! Season 3 has a few flaws, but, man, did they hit it out of the ballpark! Some viewers didn't like the amount of divergence from the base material, but the author of the books, Bernard Cornwell, is extremely happy with season 3. Asked if the divergences bothered him, he said, "Not at all." If he's not bothered by the changes, why should his fans be bothered? I'm certainly not! It was fabulous and the lead actor, Dreymon, did his best work yet! If a season 4 isn't produced, and quickly, Netflix will be making a very bad decision. This series finally has some traction!

    Amazing series, infinitely better and deeper than Vikings and more interesting due to the historical nature of the subject than Game ofAmazing series, infinitely better and deeper than Vikings and more interesting due to the historical nature of the subject than Game of Thrones.

    Each character is complex, believable and incredibly well acted. Especially that of King Alfred (David Dawson).

    The show has gotten constantly better over time and it truly deserves many more seasons.

    Destiny is All

    This is a show that breathes life back to the Dane/Saxon struggle in England. Each season have been improving drastically, and the show keeps getting better. The cast of this show have been extremely fun to watch, especially the main character, his retainers, and the Saxons. The main conflicting antagonist of this season performed brilliantly and King Alfred's portrayal was flawless and emotional. The only problems with characters/acting were the Danes. The Danes were definitively less intimidating and interesting than previous seasons.

    Also, the main conflicting ideals, goals, and responsibilities of each character was really put to test in this season. These conflicts really reflect the brilliance of the show during the conflict on England . In my opinion the power struggles in the court and religious conflict have been the shining moments of the show.
    The story was really well done and very fun to watch. I admit some scenes this season were a bit of a head scratcher, but overall I enjoyed it greatly.
    The battles were amazing scenes to watch. It is not only the fighting scenes that are well done, but the preparations, result, and role it plays that are done well.
    Overall season 3 was a really amazing and emotional season that was done very well. I really hope that there is a season 4, because the buildup, characters, and story seem to be going into even stronger and more interesting heights.

    “Kingdom” succeeds so well because writer Stephen Butchard makes you care about the characters, suffer with them, be elated for them. He“Kingdom” succeeds so well because writer Stephen Butchard makes you care about the characters, suffer with them, be elated for them. He involves your feelings in their lives. This is the root of VIKINGS
    weakness — Michael Hirst does slam bang adventure but you care less. If this is the series reflecting Brexit, it is also the one in which Prince Edward steps up to the plate. Alfred thinks —he forces his son to think. Edward’s growth is a credit to his father and again, thought provoking writing by Butchard. Also, Uthred’s tender relationships with Brida, Hild, and ultimately the King make you tear up here and there.

    Every series renews conflict between Alfred and Uthred — I was annoyed this time at the extent to which Aelswith harps on Uthred, especially since she had mellowed in season two and he had recovered her daughter from the Danes. Was also at first disappointed that Uthred did not engage with Athelflaed as he did in Cornwell’s book, but the renewal of his relationship with Brida, even though not a romantic one, lent depth. Overall the negatives were picky on my part; it is simply a terrific ride from its blast off of a start through the finish.
