    It's basically what if America had a King in modern times. I think it's based off of the Biblical story of King David somewhat too.

    I decided to peep it the other day, Not really expecting much, And it ended up being really good.

    Dope concept, writing, and acting. It has more of a movie quality to it than a TV show.




    Only thing is, It didn't really get good ratings, So unless they improve, It probably won't get past a couple episodes. It has potential tho.

    Yea...[​IMG]

    This would probably do good on HBO...It seems too serious for NBC.

    [​IMG] Shorty in the red dress was on point.

    I tried to catch it last night, but had to leave right after that scene.

    I'll prolly catch up during spring break. Finals week is a +*%+$ [​IMG]

    It's definitely a monarchy where people pay taxes etc.

    And I think it's an imaginary U.S. with a lot of similarities to the real U.S.

    yeah it feels like a "What if" situation...like what if the u.s. had a monarchy. I think they need to explain HOW it came to be amonarchy though. maybe its just me.[​IMG]

    I think they will...

    Spoiler [+]
    I think his half-brother helped him come to power after they won that war using money from Cross-Gen.

    He was a war hero who had the people's support etc.

    But yea, I believe they'll go into more detail about that.

    I thought it was a pretty cool show. There's a lot of interesting plot points, I just hope it doesn't get canceled to fast.

    Sorry Barack, its just that the guy playing the lead role was in Hot Rod and his step-son was always trying to pick a fight with him. ...I do find"Kings" very intresting though. WHen i watched the show, i just remembered his roles in Hot Rod and Death Race...

    It's apparently a modern retelling of the story of King David.

    Granted it's only the first episode, I enjoyed it.

    [​IMG] but naw he offered up a platoon for slaughter, notrecognizing it was his sons. Caught the first ep on hulu, looks epic, i'm hooked. I hope it has a finite run though, doesnt become a long drawn out show. Is it on tonight?


    and it definitely is a retelling of king david.
