Storyline

King Silas Benjamin came to power in a mythical battle against the rival neighbor republic of Gath, capitalizing brilliantly and ruthlessly on his near-godly image. Farm-boy David Shepherd performs as well, saving Silas's crown prince in another epic battle, but is too noble and naive to aspire personal benefit rather then devoutly serve king and country. Nevertheless, after Silas decides to abuse David's legend, the hero is drawn into palace intrigues culminating into coup plans against Silas. Written by KGF Vissers

Really Good Show
16 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a really good show. First off because they have a good cast, granted the only one I knew about was Ian McShane, but nonetheless they were really good actors. The story is unique but also old plot as well. It was knew with the whole 'King' idea which seems to be in a parallel universe, not talking about sci-fi just that we don't have that here. It is a good show that I really enjoyed, I would mind seeing this on for at least a couple of seasons.

I'd wish I could say more but that would be spoiling it for those who haven't seen it yet. All I can say that it is a very enjoyable show that needs to live on. Watch it, that's all I can end with
