I needed something to watch after Game of Thrones. I don't even know how or why I stumbled upon this gem on Netflix, but I am so glad I did. It doesn't help none at all that the main character is the hottest thing since hot sauce!
The Last Kingdom is better than Vikings IMHO. We have Uhtred who is kidnapped when he is a boy by the Vikings and kept as a slave, and later honored as a son. His uncle wants him dead so he can have claim on his kingdom. Along the way of trying to reclaim his kingdom back, he has to pledge his sword to King Alfred. Look, I'm not good with history or timelines, but this show has me hooked.
