TV Tuesday

Tuesday

‘Ello, this is the TV Tuesday Meme! It’s quite simple, every Tuesday you’ll do these things:

Choose between these three:

  • Book-to-Movie/TV show adaptation  (have you seen it? If no, do you plan to?)
  • Book you think should be a movie/TV show  (Why?)
  • Movie/TV show that prompted you to read a book?

*Optional – put up the trailer

Lastly:

  • Link back to your post in the comments section (so I can stalk your post ;D)


Book-to-Movie/TV show adaptation

 

The Last Kingdom posses a magnetic appeal to the historian in us all. With its play on the struggle between two rivals and their differing lifestyles, cultures, customs and religions. We’re told this history through the sideline story of Uhtred of Bebbanburg (or Ragnarson) – the heir of an English colony (sorta), however captured by Danes and raised as such  – as he tries to reclaim his throne. The history in the television series is a mixture of fiction and true historical facts, from the mind of the illustrious Bernard Cornwell in his series The Saxon Stories, in which The Last Kingdom was just the beginning. To give an accurate description of this show by comparison to others, it’d be a Games of Thrones/ Poldark/Vikings hybrid. It’s humorous, dark and supremely entertaining with an insider’s glance into the world Pre-England. (Totally off-topic, but Uhtred is gorgeous)
