    Kings Broadcast Dates Announced

    According to the official website for NBC's Kings (see my previous posts), the 2 hour pilot will broadcast on March 19th 9pm/ET. There's also a teaser trailer - although it doesn't feature any footage from the show. There's also a somewhat novel promotional feature - a fake news website from the programme's parallel world, which itself leads onto a history of "the Royal Kingdom". It's here where we finally get to see a few shots from the series itself and there's a bit of background information as well.

    I'll be keeping an eye on the site over the next couple of months, and hopefully there will be an opportunity for me to review it when we come to the middle of March.

      At this point, I'm amused by the use of familiar or referential names like "Gilboa," "Shepherd," "Gath," "Michelle," etc. At least makes it fun for those familiar with the source material. However, if the whole thing turns into just another tawdry family-saga-soap (cf. "Dirty Sexy Money," "Brothers and Sisters"), I'll be bored now.

      I think it's really interesting some of the symbolic lines in the show. The discussion about what would be on the menu. They made a point about "the lamb". No lamb, please, no lamb.

      Thanks for your observations. I hope to add a few of my own shortly.
