The Winter King S01E07 720p WEB-DL x265
I was so looking forward to The Winter King being on the same par as The Last Kingdom also based on Bernard Cornwell books. However, I'm left greatly disappointed after having slogged through the first episode of The Winter King. The dialogue was stilted and cringe worthy, the casting was bland, the wigs looked like they came out of grandma's dress up box, the direction was odd and wonky, and the editing was just bad. All of it was just.... ugh! I haven't read the books so I can't speak to the adaptation (given the other reviews, it looks like only the names of the characters were left intact) but given how truly terrible the first episode was, I think I will seek out the books just to erase this show from my memory.
