Kings is a show that I heard about a while ago. The show is based in an alternate world that is very much like the modern-day U.S., yet not like it at all. Gilboa (the name of the kingdom) is a monarchy with Silas Benjamin (Ian McShane) as the king. The aforementioned McShane is the only reason I really cared about this show in the first place, but as I did some more research on it the show sounded pretty interesting. It's definitely the most ambitious show to come along in a while. Here is how NBC's official site describes it. http://www.nbc.com/Kings/# The 2 hour pilot premieres this Sunday (March 15) at 8:00pm. IGN gave it an outstanding (9.0) in their review. Here is an excerpt from the review. http://tv.ign.com/articles/961/961665p1.html I'm more than willing to give this show a shot if only to see Ian McShane as a dictator, but I worry for it's future on an unstable network like NBC.
