If it's still a bit early for you to stick on the Christmas movies, then you may want to try this underrated series that Netflix views are raving over.
If you're a subscriber of the popular streaming platform, and let's face it who's not, then you'll know it can be difficult to know what to put on.
Scrolling through each category on Netflix and finding something to watch is never easy, so seeing what others are talking about online is always helpful.
And it turns out this one is for fans of The Witcher.
The current talk of the talk online is The Last Kingdom, which one fan has even labelled as 'way better' than The Witcher.
The series, which originally began on the BBC and has now moved over to Netflix, has five seasons to date.
The Last Kingdom follows the journey of Uhtred, a young nobleman raised by Vikings in 9th-century England.
It covers the years 866–878 where the arrival of the Great Heathen Army in England, which redefines the relationship between Vikings and Anglo-Saxons.
While the most recent season of The Last Kingdom may have released in 2022, it appears many Netflix subscribers have stumbled across the series in recent weeks.
One person penned: "Why is no one taking about this? This is way better than 'THE WITCHER'. The Witcher is more popular cause of all the sorcery stuff going on. Who else agrees?"
A second added: "The last kingdom is my all time favourite show I’ve watched it several times and never get bored!"
While a third remarked: "Currently binge watching. Amazing show!"
It isn't just fans that seem to love The Last Kingdom though, as the series sits at a rather impressive 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes' critics score.
That score is the five series ranked by the review-aggregation site as a whole, though series three on its own has a perfect 100 score.
Gerard O'Donovan of the Daily Telegraph, said: "There was more than enough to keep us watching in the hope that Uhtred's ongoing adventures will prove just as gorily satisfying as before."
Meanwhile, Den of Geek's Louisa Mellor said: "From shield walls to plans that trap the enemy in a death sandwich (a classic), to glory in battle being undercut by grief in love, this is The Last Kingdom as we know and relish it."
