the pilot was fantastic
this is an amazing reimagining of the biblical story, which if you want to get the full effect, i suggest you look over. those who haven't seen the show can't possibly know what they're talking about, but believe me when i say that if the rest of Kings is as good as the pilot it will be the next big thing. the actors, every single one, are amazing and the plot progression is smooth and interesting. though some aspects may seem unrealistic at first, you must remember to look at it in the biblical sense(one where god is active and intervenes in the world of men). you should all start to follow it if you want an amazing story with great acting. i just hope they keep it up
This show looks good, excellent in fact. NBC though does not have a track record keeping novel programming alive. I hope it succeeds, but I predict that it is too good to make it anywhere other than HBO.
'King' for a day.....or more
This show has promise. If done properly, it could find itself enjoying a good, long run on NBC. The classic re-telling of this storyline is fresh enough to be welcomed by a new, young audience. I'm looking forward to seeing how this series progresses!
