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).

Also, this show is EPIC....stellar acting, compelling and thought-provoking story line, and top notch sets and production. Don't let the formal speech or religious themes scare you off...there's so much more below the surface of the biblical themes that are well worth watching!!
It's a modern retelling of the David and Goliath biblical tale, but if religious shows aren't your thing, don't let it deter you -- it's not preachy or evangelical, though there are religious elements to it (omens, prophecies, other supernatural elements framed within Christianity).
The cast is fantastic, and I think this is be one of Sebastian Stan's best performances. The characters do speak in an unusual, almost poetic dialect, which gives you a very interesting and intuitive understanding of who is and isn't "high class" just based on how they describe things. It's absolutely fascinating, and every time I go back to this show, I fall more and more in love with it.
I've read all of the Old Testament and most of the New Testament before. I was raised and am a practicing Catholic. But I have to admit, knowing the references is both a blessing and a curse. As a student of literature, it's nice to know what they're talking about--it made me appreciate the research they've done. However, as a fan of mystery, I'd like twists to come as a surprise. Either way, you don't need to be a Christian or to read the Bible to appreciate the story.
I'm very much upset to find out that this show was cancelled. Even though writers and producers have tried to provide a conclusion to the show, it wasn't enough. I was left hungry for more. I do hope that someone would pick this show up and put it back on air. It would be such a waste not to.
I now have to go back and re-read the Story in the Book of Kings in the Bible again!
Awesome! I never saw Saul, Johnathan, and David; as well as the family rivalry in such a perspective of seeing their humanity and struggles; the call of God in One's life, and the consequences of fighting God's will. Also, clearly display are the wages of sin. :-(
Only short coming, is they did not make a second season!
If you wondered what a modern-day / 21st Century TRUE Kingdom would look like, this is it. Palace intrigue, plots and schemes, the progressive princess, the gay prince and all the while the modest hero appears to be the next heir to the throne, if the King doesn't kill him first! An amazing cast and a solid ending that (sadly) leaves you wanting more…
WORTH WATCHING! :D
