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

Wonderful!
17 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't know much about this show before I watched it and I was pleasantly surprised. I soon caught the parallels between Kings and David and Saul.

The show is complex and very well done. It is early, but I can tell I am going to be a huge fan. I am about to say something that I never thought would cross my lips - "good job NBC!" I will be very interested to see how closely it follows the biblical model, because that is a great story.

Perhaps with the success of this show, producers will see that there is a market for Judeo-Christian based entertainment (though I know this isn't exactly that). Now if they would also produce something that I could watch with my 9 year old during prime time they would be on a roll.
