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...

Great TV Show
12 January 2018 | by offsmithSee all my reviews

Just happened to find this show scrolling through Netflix one day. So happy I found this series.

The first episode was good, but it took 2-3 to draw me in. I think the plot and story are just great. It is a twist on the Viking world that is currently taking TV by storm. The actors do a phenomenal job with their characters and interaction with one another.

I love how the relationships have developed between all of the characters in this world, between Uhtred/Alfred/Ragnar and just the many many other characters how have strained and strengthened relationship. I have turned several friends onto this who are GoT fans. I think this series is right there with GoT.

I can't wait for another year of it and I am interested in where they take the story and the characters!
