    Witness the riveting rule of a modern-day monarchy in Kings: The Complete Series, the compelling, thought-provoking drama starring Golden Globe® winner Ian McShane (Deadwood). King Silas Benjamin (McShane) rules the country of Gilboa with steely determination unmatched by any rival. During a tense battle with the neighboring nation of Gath, David Shepherd (Chris Egan, Eragon), an idealistic young soldier from the countryside, heroically crosses over dangerous enemy lines and rescues a critical prisoner-of-war – the King’s son. Now, the lives of David and the King will become powerfully intertwined as greed, war, romance, forbidden love and secret alliances threaten to tear apart the kingdom. Co-starring Allison Miller (17 Again), Susanna Thompson (NCIS), Sebastian Stan (Rachel Getting Married), Eamonn Walker (Oz) and Dylan Baker (Revolutionary Road), this epic David-and-Goliath tale has critics proclaiming, “Kings is a big, ambitious, imaginative fantasy…” (Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly).

    5.0 out of 5 stars The best show you'll never see on network TV June 22, 2009
    Format:DVD
    This show does have its faults. The biggest one is how modern speech is intermingled with Shakespearean dialogue... it gives the show gravitas, but it cuts back on the realism. There are some unlikely events, but since this is a retelling of a Bible story in a modern setting, I don't mind it, and as a sci-fi enthusiast I even like it. The show does take things very seriously, with two unlikely security guards providing comic relief that quite frankly, isn't very funny. There is a lot about the world that we don't know, and there is little exposition, which will drive alternate universe fans up a wall. Additionally, if you jump into the series mid-stream, it may take you a few minutes of viewing to become acclimated.

    If you can get past those faults, you'll find some of the best there is on TV right now, especially network TV. Sub plots that seem to have nothing to do with one another cleverly weave together throughout the hour to come to surprising twists at the end. Though the characters are mostly archetypes, they are very interesting, and you want to know more about them-- especially Silas and how he became king. The way religion is portrayed and how it affects things is very reminiscent of the new Battlestar Galactica; the multi-ethnic cast reminiscent of Star Trek, politics will have you waxing nostalgic for The West Wing, and best of all, it's not another cop, lawyer or doctor show. It's not insipid reality TV or a recycled sitcom. This is truly original, intelligent programming.

    Unfortunately, due to the worst viral marketing campaign I have ever seen, I don't think we'll get another season, so get this show and watch it on your own. NBC did very little to promote this series, but is going out of its way to push another cheap cop drama on us.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Kings - A True Epic June 14, 2009
    By LJDB
    Format:DVD
    Rarely does a television series come along that challenges the norms, takes things a step further from what we already see. Television is a hit and miss industry in the first place. When a high concept series comes along, it is an even tougher sell. That's why it is such a rare occurrence when shows like Lost and Heroes break through.

    Though for every breakthrough hit, there's probably 5 other shows that fail. Which is very unfortunate, because there such creative, well-written, well-produced, and well-acted shows that go unnoticed. This isn't a new phenomenon, but it doesn't make it any less sad.

    Visually stunning cinematography, outstanding cast, and excellent writing... Kings deserved to be a hit. But alas, one season is all we're going get. One season that is not like anything else on network TV.

    And thankfully, it can live on on DVD so one day, its greatness can be truly realized.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Kings June 8, 2009
    Format:DVD
    Kings is one of those rare series which comes along once in a decade. Loaded with Biblical allusions, well written stories, intrigue at all levels, and fabulous sets, it is the story of Captain David Shepherd, King Silas Benjamin and the Reverend Ephram Samuels. The sitting is the futuristic city of Shiloh.

    There is growing romance between David Shepherd, the national hero, and King Silas's daughter, Michelle, who cares about the people. Her passion is to convince her father to institute universal health care for the kingdom. The growing tension between the spiritual leader of the nation, Reverend Samuels and its king is like a dance of dragons before the fire storm begins.

    Butterflies play an integral part in this series. There is a scene where David is surrounded by butterflies as King Silas watches and wonders if David will replace him as king of Gilboa. General Linus Abner, military chief of staff, is concerned as well about David. Abner wants him out of the way-permanently.

    Of course, you have Queen Rose Benjamin. She would give Lady Macbeth a run for her money. She is cool, calculating and lethal as well as poise, beautiful and intelligent.

    A word has to be said about Jack Benjamin, heir apparent. He is a disappointment to his father and loves to party with his friends. He views David Shepherd with an envious eye-David is the son that King Silas always wanted. Jack sees how David is treated by his father and loved by the people. In fact, it was David who saved Jack in the beginning from the enemy forces which propelled David to the national hero status. David is the kind of man that Jack should be.

    It is a drama with elements of science fiction, alternate realities, etc. It is sad that more viewers never made it a contender.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Every 10 Years Or So ... July 22, 2009
    By Quantum
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    ... television produces true art. In this decade, it's been "Battlestar Galactica" (in terms of drama) and "24" (in terms of innovative form). "Kings" is both; it mines the Bible (of all things!) for deep content about the human condition, and flies in the face of political correctness in generating a format that is just staggeringly innovative and paradigm-shattering. Ironic that the evangelicals and fundamentalists missed this brilliant series, with its penetrating insights, dramatic consistency and deep honesty. BUY THIS DVD SET.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Words July 16, 2009
    Format:DVD
    This show is by far the best I've ever seen, the script is nearly perfect, the acting is outstading, and the story is completely engaging.

    And as a smack in the face NBC not only cancels the show but also fails to deliver a Bluray edition? NBC not only slams their viewers but also the art of filmaking as a whole, caring only for what gives them the highest number of viewers and revenue.

    DVD-- how many episodes?
    Unforunately, there are no remaining episodes. 13 episodes were ordered and filmed, and 13 episodes were aired. And if you think about it, the story arc didn't end abruptly at all; the story arcs were complete, though really that last episode was setting the stage for what should have been... Read More

    Blu Ray version?
    Incredibly stupid, and more so to not have put out a Blu-ray version. It's truly a crying shame to see this show canceled, easily one of the best shows I've EVER seen, if not THE best.

    Does it have an ending?
    They left it open for Season 2. Very highly recommend you check it out through Netflix/Blockbuster to see if you like it before purchasing. Some people were turned off by the Shakespearian dialog.
