>>64665751 I thought it was one of the best shows that has come out in a long time. What I really respected about it is the use of restraint when it comes to music and monologues. GoT is the worst at that. So many scenes of really sad music when a character is having a really sad monologue. I cringe whenever I watch those scenes. Also a lot of the scenes in GoT are set up like a you would a scene in a play. Very static. The Last Kingdom was much more immersive. The dialogue and story are also top notch and blow GoT out of the fucking water.
>>64667792 Every book he fell in love with some cunt and started thinking with his dick being half the time some white knight faggot and half the time a kinda callous pragmatist
I don't know, the whole thing just frustrated me like he couldn't quite decide what kind of a character he wanted Sharpe to be so he just shifted between a cunning pragmatist and an idiotic moralfag constantly
It's been a while since I read them and I guess I should mention I only read the India books and chronologically up to Sharpe's Rifles so maybe he was different in the older books
>>64665751 I haven't read the books, though I do have an experience with Cornwell because I think I must have read The Warlord Chronicles at least 4 times. That said, The Last Kingdom is really good. Really. It's subtle, realistic, and it does not romance the age - just as I know Cornwell does, with his descriptions of pagan priestesses pissing on enchantments to make them lose their power and the like.
The last episode though is really, really rushed. They didn't do such a good job with showing the events with the actual importance they had. All in all very recommended.
>>64668539 I haven't read the books, but the only motivation he seemed to have in the show was that he wanted to get back Bebbanburg. He said that as a dane, he would never be able to be lord of Bebbanburg. Which I didn't understand at all. The danes already ruled over Northumbria. All he had to do was meet with Ragnar, gather an army and kill his uncle.
>>64668386 The Danes are literally under control, first, of Ubba who fucking hates him, and then of Guthrum who also fucking hates him. The Dane ruling stuff in the north and keeping his uncle as a puppet is Kjartan, and both fucking hate him. He has no choice.
>>64668707 The only Dane who would have his back would be his brother, who was in Ireland at the time and he had no way of knowing when he would be back. And by the time his brother did come back he had made an oath.
>>64669365 >start mount&blade >spend 100 hours riding around saving peasant women and making your ultimate Sword Sister army >realize there's literally nothing else to do >quit >repeat after about a year Can't wait for Bannerlords
>>64669157 Well, for one, he practically ambushed Ubba and Guthrum while they were busy. Also, he knew Ubba was an impulsive guy, but Ubba only started to hate Uthred after he heard he had taken Story.
Even if Ubba had believed Uthred, he'd still see the kidnapping of his seer as a direct insult towards him and would have wanted to kill Uthred for that, so his plan was always really dumb.
>>64669563 yeah thats how I felt.In asoiaf there is always a huge end up that disappoints the readers on purpose in order to 'shock' them,picking up the Saxon Stores after finish asoiaf was really satisfying
