The Last Kingdom
« on: May 15, 2017, 01:47:59 PM »
First, I'll start that I am an absolute history junkie, even in cinema with some artistic/fact liberties taken.

Am watching some of the best of this genre in years right now.(IMO). I may be late on the boat on this one, but if you are into this kind of entertainment, it is like GOT, with a semi-historical slant.

 "Last Kingdom" is based on a Bernard Cornwell set of novels.

Just wondering if anyone else is watching this?  I am pretty up to date on some historical eras, but not as much on 9th century Britain.  I know it is fiction, but obviously has some fact basis.  Just wondering about accuracy. (i.e Braveheart fact bad)

1st season was with BBC, 2nd as a Netflix original.  Both seasons can be seen on Netflix.  Finally, I sure hope there is a Season 3.

And of course a warning, it is PG13-R ish, and very much not intended for children.

I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.

I've watched it and am a big fan. It's definitely not child friendly.
