Netflix and other OTT platforms have really been a boon especially for the students. These platforms provided us with some great shows and movies to watch from all genres and in multiple language for all age groups.
One of the most talked about show this season has been The Last Kingdom based on The Saxon stories by Bernard Conwell, starring Alexander Dreymon, Emily Cox, David Dawson. The story is about Uhtred Ragnarson, who was Born a Saxon but raised by Vikings then kidnapped by raiding Danes who raise him from age 11 teaching him to be a warrior. The show at first may seem to be not of any interest but has a really surprising turn of events and a bingeworthy and addictive storyline. The show as of now has 4 seasons and is available on Netflix. The show when looked as a story can be translated as to re-telling the stories of King Alfred the great and his attempts at uniting the many separate parts of what is now called England. The tale goes about the perspective of Uhtred of Bebbanburg who was a man brought up by different family line and born in a different family line who has to not only work for retribution but also keep up his oaths and deal with his cultural differences.
Once the last season is complete which is highly believed to be adaptions of the 3rd and 4th books of the series there is a high demand for s5 which shall consist the story line of the last books. Although due to the onset of the virus and lockdown there were no shootings being conducted ever since this has been allowed there are images and videos that the shooting for the 5th season has begun. There were multiple reviews that came up as we rode along the end of S4 like if Alfred’s legacy will come falling down, the multiple changes and the father-son relationship turning dramatic, royal age was never helpful, this world has a history of shared humanity not well preserved and much more.
