Shocking and frightening tale of a haunted hospital that was built over an ancient graveyard. The doctors have put all their faith into science and technology, and are dismissive of any suggestion of mysticism or unseen powers...at their own peril. Written by

A tragic accident. Suffering horribly. So I did the humane thing and put him to sleep.

It took me awhile to get into this series. In fact, after watching the
two-hour premiere, I almost didn't come back to watch Ep. 2. But I did,
then I watched Ep. 3, and I think that's where I finally started getting
hooked. Unfortunately, ABC has now put out official word that they have
cancelled the series, though they will show all the remaining episodes
(while based on a miniseries, King had begun writing material for a second
season, which ABC has now axed). Thankfully, ABC has agreed to release the
series on DVD later this year.
I've most enjoyed the episodes where you see a lot of the ghosts. I think
Jodelle Micah Ferland (Mary) is just adorable, she just breaks my heart.
I'm really impressed by Kett Turton (Paul and the voice of Antubis). This
is the first thing I've seen him in and I think he's great. And I just love
Diane Ladd as Mrs. Druse. In my opinion, the episodes in which those three
figure the most prominently are the best of the series.
Unlike many others who watch this series, I have not seen Riget so I have
nothing to compare Kingdom Hospital with. I do plan to see Riget (my local
Blockbuster actually carries it, under the title "The Kingdom"), but I think
I'll wait until this series is over, since those who have seen Riget first
seem the most disappointed with this new rendition.
Definitely bizarre, but it grows on you. Stephen King stated that viewers
might not see the rewards of this show right away, but if they would just
stick with it they would. It's too bad that more people didn't listen, or
it might have survived.
