I don't know I prefer the last kingdom, perhaps the fact that Vikings premiered on tv.

TLK is watchable due to how dumb and campy it is. Vikings actually has thought out into it and some semblance of professional acting and direction. Neither should be watched for history and Vikings is objectively a better show.

Always hoped for a Warlord Chronicles adaption, but things like this make me fear for it. Or that it'd have to be made shite like Vikings.

Last kingdom is ok. Vikings had some shark jumpy moments last season (ragnar doing heroin with yoko ono), but it ended well. The Last Kingdom had some absurd moments too. Like when the two friends are fighting to the death and they just stab some woman in a cage for the laughs, which would be alright if this was blackadder, but come on.

It was too edgy if anything
Fucks his sister

Gets good wife, beats up her freinds
Fucks pagan sorceress, bad guy immediately leaves battlefield, chops her head off, and throws her head at main guy's feet leading to vikingrage.gif

Do people still not get the drug thing? He was still sad about Athelstan and Laegertha and used the drugs to cope with his sadness. This tragically accelerates his downfall as king and makes his life even worse. It's one of the best parts of the whole show.

This show has one of the DUMBEST protagonist you can ever find.

I was kind of liking the battle at the end of the season... until they broke the shield walls and it turned into hollywood melee.

An ok show tho.

Vikings is a good show with a shitty story. The Last Kingdom is a good story with a shit show.

I just hope they keep going until old Uhtred fights at the Battle of Brunanburh.

lel, try watching Peaky Blinders. My mom once walked into with me watching it and asked what language the show was in (We're American) then later my dad (who was born in Scotland) sat there for 5 mins and then walked out saying "I can't understand a fucking thing they're saying".

@Stupidasole
Anglos and Saxons were invited and migrated as well as conquered
Danes did not 'conquer England' they held parts of it for times, usually NE which no one gave a fuck about anyway, same with Danelaw
Norman's were culturally French/Frankish at the time, and even genetically they were long intermingled with the local normans

Nobody wants a story about the loser retards and nobody wants a story about the winner retards. In short, that's why there aren't many popular religious heroes, because even retards don't want to identify with retards.

The north-east (Bernician Northumbria) was the one part of the north that the Danes never conquered.

Hence the still relatively pure Angle dialect and accent there.

Pretty lousy. They may have done better with a longer run, but as is it starts of as a mess, and finishes as a clusterfuck. You can see the exact moment they found out it was canned and had to be wrapped up in a short space.
