This show, while not my favorite subject is interesting. The cinematography is beautiful. I did struggle with understanding the plot or where the creators were going to take the characters. It also has a lot of violence in the show. Even though, the violence isn’t as bad as I’ve seen in other shows, it still wasn’t fun to which. The show does lack in telling the story of Uhtred, the Saxon boy brought up by the Danes. Enough that I’m not interested in the story. The show doesn’t include much of the distain that the Danes had of Christianity, which I hear was a big part of the book series. This show is not worth a watch.
