I just watched the KINGS pilot on Hulu and I actually really liked it. It's big and sweeping and poetic and dark and hopeful and interesting. It's filled with conflict. It balances modernity with a biblical tale of timeless themes. It's gorgeous and symbolic.
But mostly, it's just different. As I watched I just kept thinking, I've never seen anything like this. And that excites me.
Its premiere numbers were quite low, so I'm cautious in thinking about the show's future...but I'm happy it made it this far. Check it out.
