A modern-day soap about a hero who rises to become the King of his nation, based on the biblical story of King David.
I’m so fascinated by the idea that someone managed to sell such a pitch, I feel compelled to keep watching for a while no matter how silly the plot might or might not be (I’m not sure).
And, yeah, the male cast definitely doesn’t hurt. Too bad they missed the real James Edward Olmos by a couple of months, though. (Okay, actually, once you get used to how much they look and sound alike, he’s a very fine King.)
Brian Ford Sullivan of The Futon Critic commented that "Kings is ultimately a show you’re either going to dismiss as silly and pretentious or fall in love with because of its silliness and pretentiousness. I find myself in the latter category because I’m always a sucker for swing-for-fences serialized shows like this, especially when it looks … and feels unlike anything on television right now."
