The next great binge-watching series on Netflix that is highly recommended is the BBC fare The Last Kingdom.

The series begins in the late Dark Ages in 866 A.D. Danish Vikings are rampaging all across England and in the south, the Kingdom of Wessex pretty much stands alone in trying to stem the tide of Danish forays. 

The Last Kingdom is based on The Saxon Stories series of books by Bernard Cornwell.

The BBC financed the first two seasons, and Netflix has taken over the next two, which resulted in an increase in production values.
