Storyline

The year is 872, and many of the separate kingdoms of what we now know as England have fallen to the invading Danes, leaving the great kingdom of Wessex standing alone and defiant under the command of King Alfred. Against this turbulent backdrop lives our hero, Uhtred. Born the son of a Saxon nobleman, he is captured by the Danes and raised as one of their own. Forced to choose between the country of his birth and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are ever tested. What is he? Saxon or Dane? On a quest to reclaim his birthright, Uhtred must tread a dangerous path between both sides if he is to play his part in the birth of a new nation and, ultimately, recapture his ancestral lands.

Won't follow the historical timelines and events, and that's what's going to make this show great
17 October 2015 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I've noticed that there have been a lot of Medieval/Vikings shows lately. Vikings, The Bastard Executioner, and The Last Kingdom are just a few examples of the well known ones. This first episode really convinced me that this show will be worth watching. The story telling and development was alright for the most part, if anything it might have paced along too fast for me. To lose 2 important historical characters like that straight out the gate really left me a little concerned for the story-line later on. I don't think that this show will follow the historical timelines to a T, but it will have some relevant moments.

Last Kingdom takes place in 9th century England during a time of conflict between the Danish Vikings and England. The first episode really sets up the background story for the main character that we will be following along with. They skipped through large periods of his life from when he was a little boy to early adulthood to show you his beginnings. I thought this show was going to focus mainly on Ragnar Lothbrok because of the timeline and Vikings invasion, but I was wrong. I think it is better that they went with this route because Vikings already has their foothold in that area. At this point in development, they can do whatever they want with the storyline and I think that's a good thing. Can't wait to see what they bring in the future.
